Manuel and Kollette serve with CMF's church-planting team in Mexico. Due to a health emergency they returned to the US for Kollette’s recuperation and therapy. It is our hope that they will return to the Mexico soon and once again be engaged in ministry.
Manuel’s desire to share Christ’s love with his fellow Mexicans comes from his experience of entering into a personal relationship with Jesus as a young adult. His vision is to engage others through community outreach programs that serve the urban poor in Mexico and demonstrate how his life has changed as a result of knowing Jesus. Kollette applies her background in education to engage adults and children in activities at community centers.
Both Manuel and Kollette use their gift of hospitality and their community outreach activities as a platform to deepen relationships and invite people to Discovery Bible Studies (DBS) in their home.
Manuel and Kollette’s shared passion for the Spanish language, Mexican culture and the Bible has inspired them to share the freeing truth of the gospel with people who do not have a relationship with Christ. They have three children: Santiago (2015), Marcos (2017), and Seth David (2021).
