SERVING IN : International
MINISTRY FOCUS : Social Justice
Catalina says: “I am a result of mission’s work”. She came to know the Lord as her Savior in one of the church plants in her home town in Quito. A year later she met her husband Jim who was serving as a missionary in Ecuador. After marriage both of them returned to Ecuador as full time missionaries.
Catalina has been working in Life Giving Ministry for the past 20 years. She is the founder of the Showers of Grace Pregnancy Resource Center, the first center of its type in Ecuador. Since 2012 she has been traveling as a volunteer with LIFE International, as an International Training Specialist. Her travels have taken her to Latin America, Africa and Asia training men and women in different topics of the Sanctity of Human Life, including Post-Abortion Recovery.
Catalina sees her ministry as a foundational piece in the church planting movement because it brings health and growth to the church of Christ.
Beginning in 2016, as a Globe International missionary, she will join LIFE International (www.lifeinternational.com) as a Coach to International Ministries. In this role she will use both on-site and online strategies to provide support to LIFE International Family members around the world, by consulting, coaching, resourcing and training.
Jim and Catalina live in Daphne, AL and have two children, Philip (20) and Eliana (17).
