San Cristobal, Guatemala
The Riveras are serving in Guatemala in different capacities. Their primary purpose is to share the love of God with the local people. Through their lives they seek to be the light of Jesus to those they meet and serve. Many times this is through giving Bible lessons and meeting physical needs in a poor urban community. The program that has been established in the community meets basic needs for people who exist at a survival level. This provision has included food, education and medical care. For the past 15 years, Kelli has also served by educating English-speaking, missionary children at the Christian Academy of Guatemala as a teacher and educational therapist. As a result of this service, missionary parents are able to follow God’s call in ministries such as theological training, evangelism, orphan care, church planting, and Bible translation.
