Colter serves in the city of Arequipa, a city in southern Peru surrounded by three volcanoes and stunning Spanish colonial architecture. Since early 2018, he volunteers in Arequipa English, an English-speaking club and Bible study for Peruvians. His vision is to continue serving in the English club and the music ministry of the local church, and to include more one-to-one discipleship opportunities and camp-related ministries, in addition to implementing sports activities during the upcoming year. In March 2019, he will marry his best friend, Daniella, whom he met and has grown to love through the Spanish school where he studied and the local church where she grew up.
Roberto and Maury began Children’s Club Bolivia in 1995. This ministry has three main aspects: Sunday school teachers’ seminars, children’s crusades and a dynamic radio program.

Dan moved to Sucre, Bolivia in 2003 to intern as youth pastor and worship leader of Piedra Viva Church. There he met Aylín, and they married in 2007. In April, 2011 Dan and Aylín assumed the role of lead pastors of the church, overseeing a vibrant, growing body of believers. Their calling is to see people touched with the life-transforming power of God’s Truth and to mobilize the local church to impact the community. They have four children: Beth and Benji, born in 2008, Caleb, born in 2013, and Annika, born in 2015.
Chris and Elizabeth Trueworthy joined WIM in 2011 after Chris graduated from language school in McAllen, Texas. Chris has been in ministry for 20 years and has always had a passion for the nations. In 2010, Chris and Elizabeth yielded to God’s call to serve full-time in missions. They are currently ministering in Jiutepec, Mexico, where they have a desire to see the indigenous churches mobilized for a greater impact and service in global missions. As part of this venture, they are writing a dicipleship course to help the local churches grow in unity to accomplish the goal of global impact. They travel to various places in Mexico preaching, teaching, and developing relationships with the Mexican pastors. Their vision is to see the Mexican church rise up to take its place in reaping the harvest around the world. Their son Christopher Jr. is a vital part of this ministry in Mexico.
John and Joann Hawkins gave their lives to Jesus Christ in 1987. After graduating from Christ for the Nations in 1990, they entered full-time ministry with World Indigenous Missions and served in southern and central Mexico for 13 years planting churches and training national leaders. They realized that the effectiveness of their ministry could be exponentially increased if they made use of modern media. So in 2004, they joined forces with World Impact Now Ministries, a ministry which uses video technology to equip churches and leaders around the world to facilitate Christian Leadership Training & Discipleship and Community Development. The programs they use the most are those they have filmed and produced themselves–“Nation-2-Nation,” a ministerial and biblical studies program (used to train church leaders) and “Nation-2-Nation Community Development” which is a humanitarian program (used to equip the church to be a social and practical blessing to its community). They have helped to establish over 1000 video Bible schools in 20 languages around the world.
