How has God brought you to where you are today?

God brought our family of 6 to Costa Rica in 1994 through a series of life events and much prayer. It was never our intention to be missionaries, we were very content serving in the Youth Ministry and Awana at Calvary. While visiting Costa Rica we sensed God stirring our hearts with the great need to be a part of bring the gospel to the 270,000,000 youth of Latin America.

What is God doing in your immediate context?

God is continually drawing unsaved youth to Himself as we see students accepting Christ as savior on a regular basis. God is also establishing them in their faith and equipping them to reach others. It is exciting to watch God stirring Latin youth to take the gospel to the world.

How does your partnership with Calvary help you be more effective in your work?

The Calvary church family has been a bedrock for us as missionaries on the field. Without people back home praying for us, caring for us, supporting us monthly, sending ministry and work teams we would never have made it 20 years on the field. Thank you so much!

How can people stay connected with you and your ministry, e.g. email newsletter, blog, social media?
