Missionaries to Guatemala
God took hold of our hearts during our first missions trip to Guatemala in 2011. We returned to the U.S. and all of our hopes, dreams, and desires were radically changed to want to serve God’s people in Guatemala. He used our skills, desires, and experience to guide us to His true calling upon our lives. You can read more about this story and the ministry He has called to by checking out our ministry page at Uniting 2 Serve.
We’d like to invite you to partner with us through prayer as we continue to share our experiences and bridge the gap between Guatemala and our home country. To learn more about those ministries and stay updated on how Jesus is allowing us to further His Kingdom in Guatemala please subscribe to our newsletter. God’s presence in Guatemala and His plan for the Guatemalan people is a miracle that all should witness.

Keith began working at Servants in September of 2017. He had been working as a full-time youth pastor in the York area for over 10 years and felt God calling him in a new direction. He has volunteered with Servants in the past, and when he saw the opportunity to serve full-time God said “Go.”
Keith is married to Emily and they have three sons: Benjamin, Joshua, and Noah.
There is a saying that “God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the called.” Keith definitely feels called to this work, but it is wholly the work of the Holy Spirit that has qualified him. Keith loves to see others experience moments where God equips them to do work that would not be possible without Him.

Olga started as the mother of one of our at-risk families in Guatemala. Since 2013, we have seen her grow as a strong Christian leader both inside and outside the church. In 2015, she married Elias. Olga has 3 children, 2 of which still live with her.
Olga’s heart for service is clear and anyone who has met her on a trip will back that up! She loves to help others and share her own testimony to encourage others to overcome adversity to show the love of Christ.
Olga is now working with us as a missionary in Guatemala (she is originally from Honduras) serving at-risk families as part of our team, using what she has learned of God’s love and power in her life to share that hope with others.

SARF Family Representative
Michy is passionate about what she does, she pushes herself to do things well, and give her best in all her efforts. She is a preschool teacher and loves to teach and work in education to help her fellow Guatemalans. Even though she is passionate about working with little kids, God has called her to share with others her testimony so that they can see even though we all experience difficult moments, God always helps us through them.
Working with Servants, her main focus is visiting families to make sure their health, economic situation, education, and especially their spirituality is doing well. Aside from spending personal time with the families, she also helps the kids in the families attend meetings in school (almost like a big sister) to make sure things are understood and they are properly cared for. When it is necessary to provide nutrition baskets through the ministry, she also makes the majority of purchases, organizes, and delivers them.
Michy also acts as the ministry’s legal representative which means administrative meetings with lawyers, accountants, etc. to make sure the legality of the ministry is kept current.

Marcia joined Servants in October 2020 after a long career in the not-for-profit world, working with the YMCA, Meals on Wheels, Byrnes Health Education Center, Boys Hope Girls Hope and several other not-for-profit organizations providing services for youth and families. Her desire to serve began as a youth when she participated in local mission trips with her church in Pittsburgh, Pa. As an adult member of Chapel Church in Red Lion, she had the opportunity to take a mission trip to Guatemala to help build facilities for children, as well as work together with other Christians from across the US. This life-changing experience has led her to join the Servants team and help give others this same transformational experience.
Marcia loves to travel and her most recent job as a fundraising consultant had taken her to New Jersey, New York, Virginia and Iowa. She is thrilled to be back in the York area and near her family and friends. Marcia has been both a Rotarian and Kiwanian and wants to volunteer locally in local not-for-profit organizations that serve both families in need and animals. She enjoys hiking, biking, reading, baking and exploring new places.
