Talo and Patty Vergara

Talo Vergara is from Uruguay. He accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at the age of six. Talo grew up regularly attending the Grace Church of Montevideo that former GMI missionaries Arnie and Sally Selfors founded. Eventually, Talo became one of the youth leaders there. As he saw his friends’ lives changed because of sharing his faith, it fueled his passion for Christ, and he realized he wanted to be involved in ministry for the rest of his life. After attending Grace Bible College (now Grace Christian University) in Grand Rapids, MI, where he obtained his Bachelor of Theology Degree in Pastoral Ministries in May 2004, he was accepted by GMI to be a full-time missionary in Bolivia. In February 2006 Talo arrived in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and served there for over four years. Then in 2011 he was loaned to Movida, a Christian mobilizing organization focused on encouraging and empowering the youth of Latin America to serve the Lord in missions. Talo served with Movida for six years promoting missions at the CIMA conferences that Movida organizes in various countries of Latin America. During his six years serving with Movida Talo lived in Bolivia, Argentina, Ecuador, and Costa Rica setting up various national and international missionary conferences.

Patty Diaz is from Loja, Ecuador. She has been a Christian since she was a teenager. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Social Communication and for over three years she used her profession to serve God at the local Christian radio station. She served with her singing talent for various years at her local church. Talo and Patty met in 2015 during a local CIMA conference. Soon they fell in love and got married on July 15, 2016. On February 8, 2018, Talo and Patty were blessed to have their first child, Lucas. As a full-time missionary couple serving with GMI, the Vergaras have recently been assigned to Paraguay. The main focus of their ministry is to support the missionary team in Ciudad del Este in the start and development of the new Grace church in town. They are serving in various areas such as discipleship, evangelism, and leadership.
