Belinda shares, “I came to know the Lord as my Savior around the age of 9 through the American Sunday School Union. The small Sunday School that was in my area had to close when I was around 11 years old. I did not start going to church after that until I was 16 when my sister and I started attending Grace Baptist Church in Commerce City, Colorado. It was at that time I responded to the Lord, telling Him I was willing to go where He wanted me to go and do what He wanted me to do. I have never regretted that.
After graduating from High School, I attended Western Bible Collage in Morrison, Colorado graduating with a Biblical Education Mayor and a Missions Minor. In 1977 I joined Biblical Ministries Worldwide and arrived in Montevideo, Uruguay in January 1980.
Over the last almost 40 years I have been involved in church planting in Uruguay. Until 3 years ago my ministry was for most part in Montevideo. It was then that I moved to the small town of San Jacinto. I continue to work in church planting alongside Tim and Kary Willoughby where we right now we are reaching out to 3 different small towns along Route 7: San Jacinto, San Ramon and Tala.
I continue to work in the ministry with Aptas para Servir (Ladies Able to Serve), assisting local churches to train their ladies to serve in their churches. And also in the Facultad de Educación Biblica de Uruguay (FEBU Collage of Biblical Education of Uruguay) where I teach three Women’s Discipleship, Women in Ministry and Pedagogy.”
