“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.
The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
We are Joe and Jayne Martinez living and working in Cusco, Peru. We are also the parents of two young boys Christian and Micah. We are working as a family reaching out to other families who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Living in a foreign country and away from family and our own culture has become our way of life. Although, at times the road may be bumpy, we would not trade it. Our 4 year-old Micah meets and greets everyone with a big smile and loves the outdoor life. Our 6 year-old Christian has a wonderful gift for learning languages. He not only speaks Spanish, but even learns the tribal languages from the other children without realizing how difficult that is supposed to be. He has a fun loving personality that draws other children towards him. God bless these precious children He has entrusted to us. God continues to be faithful to our family and for that we are forever grateful. Above all, we feel so very blessed to be spreading that wonderful Good News of Jesus Christ to all the nations.
We also know that without our Lord and the prayers of our brother's and sister's in Christ, we would never have been able to make this journey. No matter what time of the day, night or circumstance it is, God is always with us. We have brother's and sister's in Christ continually praying for us.
