Carla and I were high school sweethearts and married shortly after graduating Carter High School. Then God blessed us with two amazing children, Katie and Zach, that love the Lord and desire to serve Him. Katie loves music, Facebook, horses and meeting new people. Zach has a strong passion for sports, plays guitar, and has a kind heart toward those in need. Our journey to Guatemala began in 2002 by visiting a small children’s home. That is where we met our new “sons” Julian and Jadon. We began our adoption which should have taken a short 18 months, but, in reality took 6 1/2 years to complete. During that time, God placed a burden on all of our hearts to move to Guatemala and start a ministry to help families and children in need.
Before moving to Guatemala, we hosted 30+ teams over a 5 year period. We moved and lived in Guatemala for more than 5 years as full-time missionaries then God brought us back to Tennessee with a personal battle of cancer. God has now healed and we currently live full-time in Strawberry Plains and travel to Guatemala. We have a daughter Mackenzie Grace and granddaughter Ellis Ivy. I (Mike) now serves as the Executive Director and Bi-Vocational Pastor of Riverview Baptist Church. Carla is our Office Administrator and Financial Secretary but most importantly she tries to keep me in line! We have a very active Board of Directors. Most all of them have been to Guatemala to serve alongside of us with some sort of ministry. It is amazing how God has taken a small ministry and a desire to serve others and turned it into a ministry that hundreds come and serve in each year. We are so thankful for what God has done and is going to do through us and Clubhouse in Guatemala.
