Gami and Cathi Ortiz

Jose is working in Tokyo, primarily focused on reaching and discipling college-age Japanese through relationship and cultural exchange.
Jennifer has trained under Teresa Devlin to begin running the Rancho Hogar Agua Viva children’s home once it opens in 2013. A mentor of Jennifer’s put her in contact with Teresa, and she is currently working in the city of La Ceiba, teaching school until she moves out to the 17-acre orphanage property.
Much of Jennifer’s journey since coming to know the Lord has been about being open to God changing her plans, and she is thankful that she has been given a new “dream” rather than pursuing her original plan of attending law school. Jennifer has known since she was fifteen years old that she wanted to raise children that were not biologically her own, and her heart is overflowing with joy and gratitude at this opportunity to be working for the kingdom of God in such a way here in Central America.

Francisco and Eileen Lopez
Francisco (Paco) and Eileen Lopez are missionaries serving at the Pan de Vida Christian orphanage in Querotaro, Mexico, which is the home of about 110 mistreated or abandoned Mexican children. Besides just the basic necessities, such as food, shelter, and doctor appointments, Pan de Vida offers these children an elementary, middle, and high school education, and even has started its own bachelor of education program so the children can continue on to higher education.
Paco and Eileen plan on serving at Pan de Vida for a few years where they are both serving God and growing in the Lord. Their dream is to eventually start planting churches in places in Mexico that have not heard the Word of God.
Undercover Missionaries to Closed-Access Islamic Nations
Grace Point supports multiple missionaries in closed-access Islamic nations. These missionaries take the Gospel into areas where the spread of Christianity is not only frowned upon, but illegal.
For their safety and the ongoing sensitivity to their mission, we keep their identities secure and ask that you continue to pray for them in their difficult environments.
