Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

In 2019 we’ve had our first team return from an incredible trip to Guatemala.  

Active Missionaries

Aleece Diaz

Aleece has been serving in Haiti on short-term mission trips since 2011. Although she has felt more at home in Haiti than anywhere else she has ever lived, it wasn’t until 2013 that she started exploring the possibility of serving long term in Haiti as a medical missionary. That dream, in alignment with God’s plan, is finally coming to fruition and promise! Aleece recently graduated from Mercer University’s Physician Assistant Program in Atlanta, GA, so that she may return to Haiti to serve long-term as a medical missionary with Haiti Health.

Ministries (HHM) in Gressier, Haiti.
HHM is a small, faith based ministry relying on God for its funding; 100% of donations received go directly to ministry, and all HHM missionaries are funded by donor support. The clinic employs both western trained medical practitioners, as well as Gressier residents and community members. Although she has committed to a minimum of two years, Aleece plans on being at HHM for many years to come, and have thoroughly prayed about and discussed her 10-year plan and vision for her role at the clinic with the HHM board.

Aleece’s ministry vision for her first couple of years will be to continue to grow in wisdom serving as a medical provider, to become more proficient in speaking Creole, as well as to gain a better understanding of the Haitian culture so that she may better serve her patients and neighbors. She hopes to share the love of Christ with the HHM staff and patients, and to deepen her relationships with her Haitian friends. Outside of the clinic she hopes to restart the Bible study she began in 2015 with some of the neighborhood youth, God willing, as well as to get well established into a Haitian church, to join a Bible study with local missionaries, and to continue to get to know her community and expand her street outreach however the Lord may lead. Aleece is excited to begin this new season, and looks forward to all that God has planned!

Vinicio and Karry Lopez

God used Guatemala to unite this couple in a unique way. He called Karry to missions through a short term trip to Guatemala in 2001. She returned to work in an indigenous village outside of Antigua from 2003-2006. A short time after leaving the mission field, she met her future husband, Vinicio.   Vinicio was born and raised in Quesada, Guatemala. In 2014, God called Karry to lead a team for her church to Wisdom and Grace Christian School. During this trip, He began to plant seeds in her that it was time for the Lopez family to return and join this ministry. In February of 2015, the Lopez family traveled to spend time at the school where God confirmed the call to them.

Karry has personally experienced God as a loving Father who loves and cares for her as His precious daughter and desires to share that message with His sons and daughters. She has the opportunity to share the Father’s love with 2 nations through the role of Team Coordinator bringing teams from the US to partner with Wisdom and Grace Ministries. As a social worker, Karry’s heart is to minister to hurting girls and women in need of a personal experience of the Father’s love and grace.

Vinicio is both a creation of our Father and a creator. He loves to work with His hands and has a heart to serve others. He will use his gifts to manage the construction of a new school/church building and eventually the ongoing building maintenance. His understanding of North American and Guatemalan culture gives him the unique ability to facilitate their working together for the advancement of the Kingdom in this work.

Their daughters, Emma and Selah, are excited to attend Wisdom and Grace Christian School where they will be discipled through Christian education to be Kingdom changers!
