In 2005, we came to Guatemala from the UK in obedience to the call of God as a family – Russ, Linda, Sophie, and Luke. Led by the Holy Spirit, we established a work in Santiago Sacatepéquez, an indigenous town with a population of 35,000. Santiago lies at an altitude of 6,600 feet, and although we are in the tropics, it is very cold especially at night. We started with a very small church and an, educational programme with a handful of young people and a couple of adults.
As from 2022, the Family/Team has grown to 12! Sophie married Juancho have 2 children, Olivia and Judah, and Luke married Stephanie and they have 4 children – Theodore, Henry, Finley, and Alana. The Mission now comprises of a growing Church, an Outreach Programme, Social Care, Educational Programme, and Cricket.
