"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news!”

...is much more than a job, task, or assignment; it means representing Jesus to the people of Ecuador! We accomplish this by telling them of the amazing invitation to a personal and intimate relationship with Him as their Savior and Lord over their lives, AND by modeling His love for them by helping to meet real physical and emotional needs!
Woodlands Church (our home church in Wisconsin) has commissioned, sent, and helps to financially support us as long-term missionaries.
Ripe For Harvest (our mission agency) sends us out as “workers into the Lord's harvest field”.
Despensa de Gracia (our own ministry) enables us to serve refugees, immigrants, and other families in crisis, living in Ecuador.
Samaritan's Purse allows Darrell to help meet needs of people, internationally, who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine.
This is our calling – this is our privilege!
