Branson, Corey & Lindsey

Costa Rica

Branson, Corey & Lindsey

Newsletter

Corey and Lindsey Branson have been married since October of 2013. They have two young children by the name of Cooper and Londyn! Throughout our entire marriage, we have been actively involved as leaders in youth ministry.

God has called us to Latin American missions and last summer, while on a trip to Costa Rica, we received confirmation from God that Costa Rica will be our future home. We are partnering with Christy Hepner, who is currently on the field. We will be working with an after school program that empowers parents to take an active role in their children’s academic lives and give an opportunity to share Jesus with these families. Our desire is to help grow this ministry, even more, to be able to reach and impact the community as a whole.

Gutierrez, Melqui & Fatima

Mexico | FIRE International

Gutierrez, Melqui & Fatima

Newsletter

Our vision is to help, equip and minister to pastors and leaders. Ever since the Lord called me to His service I have learned that the purposes of God always come to fruition, even though, sometimes, it might seem like they take a long time. My family and I have responded to the calling (Proverbs 21:9-9). I met my wife Fatima in Guadalajara. We were married in Guadalajara, and my eldest son Neftali was born in Guadalajara. My daughter was born in Reynosa. Throughout the years we have seen the necessities of pastors and leaders. By growing up in a missionary family and being the son of a pastor, I came to understand the necessities of pastors and their families. God has placed, in my heart, a passion for the needs of pastors and leaders. Ever since I was a young boy I appreciated friendliness and empathy, and that’s exactly what we want to offer pastors and leaders. We want to be a support, both spiritual and physical, so that they may have some rest.

“We are called to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations with the Holy Spirit as our guide for the Glory of God the Father.” We both love Jesus and felt a strong call to be missionaries at a young age. At one of Globe International’s mission conferences in Pensacola, through divine intervention, we met, fell in love and were soon married! We now have two sweet boys, Jonah & Hudson, and a beautiful baby girl, Ava.

We have served in Asia and after having to leave because of sensitivity and pressure from the government we were called to the Challenge Farm in Kitale, Kenya.
