Ricardo, Vonna & Viviana Grace.

We want to thank you for allowing us to share our hearts and joy as we seek to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in beautiful, colorful, amazing Colombia.
(Many of the following pictures are from our exploratory missions trip to Colombia last year.)
Ricardo is eager to use his gifts and experience for the equipping of other Colombian pastors that otherwise would not have the privilege he had in the United States.
  • Born and raised in Bogotá Colombia
  • Masters of Divinity, 2010; Masters of Theology, 2012
  • Pastoral Ministry and Teaching Experience
  • Currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry
Vonna is originally from Oregon, and has a Masters in Biblical Counseling from The Masters University (2008) and cannot wait to bless ladies in Colombia with what the Lord has taught her, as well as serving Ricardo, Vivi, and the church in practical ways.

We met while Ricardo was finishing seminary and were married in 2010— sharing a common passion: to serve our Lord and Savior, His church, and to proclaim His good news. In January 2012 we were blessed with a daughter (Viviana Grace).
Viviana Grace is our sweet joy! She is excited to move to Colombia to tell people about Jesus.

Please pray for her as she moves away from her friends and adjusts to a new culture.
