I'm a native Floridian but served in the Central American mission field for fourteen years and consider myself 100% Chapín (or Guatemalan). I became a Christian in my sophomore year in college while attending College in Orlando, FL. Just a few months after my conversion I went into the ministry as a part time Campus and teen minister. I loved working on campus, but it was the “go anywhere, do anything” attitude of the Apostle Paul that called me to the mission field. In 1994 I signed up for a six month stint in Guatemala, but I guess my watch stopped (actually it got stolen). It was in Guatemala where I met my Guatemalan wife Wendy, who along with our three kids has followed me to El Salvador, Costa Rica, back to Guatemala and now to Chicago. God has blessed us with the privilege of witnessing how an eleven member mission team to Guatemala City has grown into nine churches and more than two thousand Christians in the seven Central American nations. While living in Central America we have actively participated in the evangelization of Guatemala City, El Salvador and Costa Rica, Panama, Belize and Quetzaltenango (or Xela, Guatemala).By no means do I consider myself an expert in missionology, but rather an awe struck observer of how God’s hand has moved ordinary men an women to do extraordinary things in order to save as many as possible. After working for 10 years with the Hispanic community in Chicago, IL, we presently we serve the Orlando Church of Christ.
