Wesley and Suzanne are serving in the central highlands of Honduras. In January 2017, they are opening Casa de Nain — a newly established home for boys. Their vision is to minister to abused and abandoned boys and raise them to be godly men. Wesley and Suzanne are also involved in community outreach and with the girls of Project Talitha Cumi.
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.
David and Lily have a heart to minister in Hispanic countries. They have spent time doing short-term missions in Mexico and now plan to be full-time missionaries. The first step will be attending language school in Oaxaca, Mexico, in August of 2016. They plan to teach, disciple, and evangelize to expand the Kingdom of God. God has also placed in their hearts to open an orphanage and Christian school.
After serving in Oaxaca and Chiapas, Mexico, the Gertsch family moved to the state of Tabasco, where they are working among the Chontal people, with the objective of seeing a strong church established in this largely unreached people group.
Aaron and Mary’s mission is to create strategic opportunities to build relationships with people who need Jesus. They are currently living in Veracruz, Mexico, serving in a church. They plan to relocate back to Valencia, Spain, to create a discipleship movement that will develop into a church planting and church reforming movement.
Matt and Crystal are working in children’s ministry in Oaxaca, Mexico. They work with indigenous churches to raise up strong and lasting children’s ministries. These ministries will train up the next generation to be empowered to impact the Kingdom of God.
Former dairy farmers from Wisconsin, Wally and Diane joined WIM in 1985. They currently pastor the Rios de Agua Viva church in Ciudad Valles, San Luis Potosi, Mexico. They oversee various churches in the surrounding mountain villages. They also partner with other churches in Ciudad Valles to impart a missions vision in the body of Christ to send out missionaries to the nations. God has called them to train up faithful men, women, youth and children who are able to train others. They have 6 children and 4 precious grandchildren!
