Our vision is to be instruments of Christ to see Guadalajara and the greater region transformed with the “Living Water,” which is life through Christ. We want to come alongside Mexican leaders and step forward with them in confidence to see the Kingdom of God advance. We want to see lives transformed in such a way that it brings change to the surrounding communities. Our calling is to focus on outreach, evangelism, discipleship, mentoring. We will be working with a “core group,” using Marriage Encounter type ministries to impact marriages, men, women, and youth– bridging through relational opportunities. These ministries equip people to minister and serve with confidence and effectiveness. We will be mentoring emerging leaders and pastors to work with the team in planting five new churches and establishing five new core groups in surrounding areas by 2025. These relational bridges will reach out in an Acts 1:8 fashion which is to take the message “to the ends of the earth.”
Don and Toni were introduced to WIM by a missionary couple while temporarily living in Houston, Texas and remained in contact with them after moving back home to Kentucky the following year.

They officially joined WIM in 2017 and are currently in the WIM training program and are attending Spanish language school in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Our vision is to be involved in evangelism, discipleship, and eventually church planting.” – Don and Toni

Around the time she graduated college with a degree in fine art, Kathryn felt God’s call to missions. Shortly afterward, she was offered a staff position at WIM headquarters where she was privileged to serve for almost seven years. In early 2016, during a WIM regional prayer meeting in Mexico, God confirmed that it was time to begin taking steps toward international service. She is currently in the WIM training program and studying Spanish.
Jonathan and Sophi met for the first time while Jonathan was on a short-term missions trip to Honduras. After getting to know each other better through internet messaging and several subsequent personal trips back to Honduras, Jonathan and Sophi were married in February 2015 and have lived in Honduras since. During this time they felt God developing in them a strong desire to serve Him while traveling to other parts of the world. After prayerfully seeking God for His will and direction, they felt God calling them to go and serve other missionaries by providing assistance with specific projects or just offering support and encouragement for a time in an effort to refresh and renew those who have made God’s call their focus in life.
