Natalie serves with Avant Ministries in Chivoc, Guatemala. She teaches English in the local school and works alongside the local church's community outreach. Natalie serves to build a deeper community with the villagers and help expand their opportunities. Her heart is that the name of Jesus be known as this community grows and develops.


A fire broke out in the Guatemala city trash dump and because the fumes were so toxic, school was canceled for a week while the firefighters from all around the country came to put out the flames. The week off was actually very helpful because Natalie was still exhausted from the Belize trip. During the week, she was able to use the time to rest and sabbath. There continues to be fires all around the hills, trees are dry after a long season of drought. Please pray for the rainy season to start.
