In 2003, we began our work in Guatemala, while serving as the Lead Pastor of Hope Community Church in Oviedo, Florida. Our eyes were opened to the great needs that existed among the poor in Guatemala, particularly the children. For the next several years, we found ourselves returning to Guatemala more and more often. Eventually, we realized that God was calling us to come to Guatemala as missionaries. In June 2006, we moved our family to Guatemala and began hosting work teams that came to minister in Guatemala. We have been amazed to see how God could use gifts of hospitality to expand His Kingdom and make disciples.
In 2008, we founded Catalyst Resources International, a registered 501(c)3 organization. As Directors of CRI, we seek to partner in Guatemala with pastors and other Christian organizations in an effort to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the people. Through partnership and shared resources we see disciples being made and the process of multiplication taking place.
Our role over the years has been to be used as a catalyst to connect resources to those in need. We anticipate and trust that God will continue to use us in this capacity to impact the world for His Kingdom.
