“That first trip was when God placed the calling in my heart to be a full-time missionary in El Salvador. The past four summers I returned to El Salvador on short-term missions trips. Last year, God revealed to me that it was finally time to leave the military and move to El Salvador as a missionary. I know that I am meant to be here. We believe that God has already accomplished so many amazing things in El Salvador, and it is only the beginning. I am staying here as a missionary for as long as God calls me.”
