Guatemala – Eliane Menezes
Rev. Eliane Menezes serves in Guatemala as Facilitator for Women’s Leadership Development with the National Union of Presbyterian Women of the National Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Guatemala (IENPG). She seeks to empower women by facilitating development of their leadership skills and by helping to nurture relationships between the women of the National Union of Presbyterian Women in Guatemala and Presbyterian women in the United States. “Working with women in Guatemala gives me an opportunity to learn about them and the gifts they bring to ministry,” says Eliane. “Engaging in conversation with women, I listen to their struggles and offer hope in order to empower and strengthen them.”

NigerMichael and Rachel Ludwig
Michael and Rachel entered mission service as a result of God’s subtle call and their careful listening.

“We feel called to mission service because we believe it’s the place where our interests and gifts coincide,” Michael said. “We’ve always had an interest in other cultures and other countries, and felt a desire to help others in the areas of their deepest need.”

“We also have gifts for teaching and learning and for living simply,” Rachel added. “So, we feel like God has prepared us for a long time to serve in Niger with its different opportunities and challenges for learning, serving and living.”
