My name is Francis, and I’m excited to see what God is doing in Lajastambo, Bolivia. I’ve been interested and involved in missions most of my life, seeing God working around the world. This will be my first time to Bolivia, and I’m looking forward to working alongside Food for the Hungry. I want to learn more about their servant-based, incarnational, and holistic development. We depart in two weeks! Please pray for our final preparations, safe travel, and effective ministry.
In addition to this Go Team, I help facilitate a men’s Bible study group at Blackhawk, where I’ve been a member since moving to Madison 15 years ago. My lovely wife, Glynis, will enjoy some introvert time with our dog, Pepper, while I’m away. When I’m not traveling, I work sales operations and process improvement.
My name is Josh. I am 37 and am married to an amazing fellow dreamer, wife, and best friend named Jenny. We have been married for 10 years and have three exceptional kids named Isla (7), Alaina (5), and Ian (1).
In my career life, I am able to live out my purpose and destiny by serving others through my job and my gifts. Currently I am a principal for Verita Energy, LLC, a company focused on energy savings best practices and a heart towards philanthropy. Beyond this, I work in another small business I founded called MEP Solutions where we help folks reduce their utility costs.
My life has been a great blessing on many fronts. I find it a privilege and a honor to thus serve others in need wherever they are. I enjoy coming along side those who need some extra support, particularly in men’s ministry. My role model is Jesus Christ and believe he alone holds the keys to our purpose and destiny. He provides and equips me with the resources, means, and spirit of charity, even if it means leaving behind those I love and care about most for a while. It is privilege to be a part of Blackhawk Church, the Bolivia go-team itself, and come alongside and work and learn with the wonderful friends we have in Bolivia.
