MEET THE VILLANUEVAS
Rick, Raul, Alma, Chris, Jocsan
When John was asked to be team leader two years ago our team was already a large team. AND WE KEEP GROWING! What we are most excited to see the LORD do is add to our team national partners. The Villanuevas will be joining us in La Ceiba at the first of the year. Raul will serve in the Bible Institute and Alma will serve as director of PDE, the single mom's home.
Read their own words about what the LORD is doing:
About us: The Villanueva’s
When God calls a family to serve Him, the family can’t go against His will. Our family was called by God to serve Him and His church and we have obediently been doing so for many years now. We are a family of five: Raul is a retired photographer, now a pastor and professor; Alma has a heart for children and women, and she’s a teacher; oldest son Rick studies Business & Math at Bob Jones University in South Carolina; Chris studies International Business & Finances at Unitec in San Pedro Sula; and Jocsan is a senior in high school and currently takes some seminary classes at SEBCAH in Siguatepeque.
What’s exciting about moving to Ceiba?
God opened the doors for us to be part of this team before we even knew about it. We have talked with the brothers at “Mission to the World” and believe that we share the same vision for God’s ministry. We believe that the bible institute to train pastors and leaders is crucial for the churches, “Puerta de la Esperanza” touched our hearts as a family, just like the rest of the projects “Mission to the World” has in Honduras. We believe these projects have a great future and we are excited about growing these ministries for the glory of Christ.
