In 2004, our family along with Pastor Mike Parker traveled to Guatemala and did an incredible mission! We ministered in many different areas traveling from church to church in town to town. Pastors David and Mike gave away two of their personal acoustic guitars they had brought for worship purposes to some pastors who had no music in their small yet growing churches. But our ultimate goal for the trip was a "Pastor's Retreat." PMImissions funded to bring in every Pastor and their immediate family from the Church of the Messiah's organization and hosted them in a 3 day conference including comfortable accommodations, upscale foods, gifts for the entire family as well as special ministry for the Pastor's, their spouses, and their children! It turned out to be one of the greatest times we have ever had in Guatemala! We hope to do it again one day.

We continue to welcome support to PMI and what we are doing still today. We continue to take trips to various parts of the world and we are making a huge impact everywhere we go.
On this particular journey to Guatemala, we worked with the "School of the Messiah" in trying to complete a project for more classrooms. We also went on our first trip to Puerto San Jose to meet Pastor Chico and his church there. We did a big fiesta with the church families including piñatas for the children. It was this trip that inspired us to build the new church that they now enjoy. We did a visit to San Jacinto to do a special Pastors Conference where God moved and a powerful prophecy was given by David. This trip was a great success. Thanks again to all our partners and supporters.
