Being Christians means we are always to live for the sake of the Gospel of salvation and love. We want to follow God’s calling in our lives. God has called us both from opposite sides of the world to serve in Mexico. James was born in South Korea but grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Los Angeles, California where he learned Spanish and developed a love for Spanish Speakers. Barbara (aka “Barbarita”) served several summers in Yucatan, Mexico through I.D.E.A Ministries where she also learned the Spanish language and developed a passion for Mexico and its people. For the past ten years, God has brought us through several short-term mission trips to Mexico. He also graciously allowed us to both to graduate from Reformed Bible College with Bachelors in Missions. James continued Mission study obtaining a Masters in Missions at Calvin Theological Seminary, and Barbara completed Nursing studies. Together, with our new son, Joshua Jae-Min, we have peace in our hearts that the Lord will continue to equip us as a family to serve His people in Tijuana, Mexico. Please, join us in the journey.
