Serving in Guatemala


Our call to join God’s work in Guatemala started when we took an extended  honeymoon to visit some friends serving as missionaries in and around Guatemala City.

It was while we were working alongside them that God touched our hearts and we felt the pieces of our life puzzle fall into place.

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father. Colossians 3:17

Since our beginning in 2017, God has continued to shape us into the people he has designed us to be. Change is difficult (especially at our age!) but He is teaching us to trust Him and our obedience to His call has been a tremendous blessing in our lives and hopefully to those we minister alongside.


Gwen disciples and tutors English at Prince of Peace, a home for girls that have been rescued from desperate situations . Here they have a chance to experience a safe, nurturing environment and experience God’s love. The purpose for learning English is to help them transition into a successful work life once they leave the home.

We feel excited and privileged that God has called us to join Him in His work here in Guatemala and we can’t wait to see Him unfold the rest of our story.

We have seen God’s blessing poured out on us by His provision throughout our lives. He has always taken care of us and we know He always will.

Like most missionaries, we are faith based missionaries. We depend on God and His people for our support. We could not serve in this capacity without a team of prayer warriors and financial donors.

Would you prayerfully consider joining our team?

  1. Pray for us. Pray that we will discern His voice.
    • The world is loud, His voice is soft.
    • We only want to be inside of His will.
  2. Donate to us in a one/time gift that will allow us to pay for things like:
    • Transportation home once a year,
    • Passport expenses or medical Bills.
  3. Sponsor us on a monthly basis so that we can meet budgeted needs like yours;
    • Rent, utilities, gas and groceries.
