Have You Met Our Love Moves Guatemala Team?

In March of 2016, 12 students accompanied by 4 leaders have the opportunity to go down to Antigua Guatemala for 8 days. While down there they will be staying at the YWAM base, serving people in the surrounding area.

They are planning to connect with some of the children they sponsored through Compassion. Along with that, they will also be distributing wheelchairs and Bibles; as well as going with the YWAM staff to give out soup to the homeless of Antigua.

Over the coming weeks we will be featuring each of the team members so you can get to know them better. Two weeks ago, we introduced you to Heather Anne, Renée Vanderstelt, Brianna Leigh and Krystyna Hall, and this past week we introduced you to Mike Reimer, Allie Kervin, Mackenzie Richmond and Ruth Johnston, if you’d like to meet them.

City:

Oro- Medonte

Favourite Subject: 

My favorite subject was always French, I was once bilingual. Over time I have lost it little by little

Random Fact about You:

I recently became a Blue Jays Baseball fan because I have an 8 year old daughter who is a diehard fan and thinks watching the games is the greatest family time ever!!  If a game is on we can be found dressed in our Blue Jays attire, cheering them on, often with friends who have stopped in to join the action!

Outside of School [aka your day job] you love to:

I work at the Business Development Manager for local Mortgage Brokerage

What you appreciate most about InsideOut:

I love the students! They challenge me with difficult subjects and questions, but they make me a better person. They help me practice patience and remind me how important it is to have a support system who encourages me to keep growing my faith.

What you hope God does in you on this trip: 

This will be my third mission trip, second to Guatemala, with each trip my journey is different! I have promised myself I will take time in peace to appreciate the culture, surroundings and truly listen to why God keeps giving me these amazing opportunities.  I can’t wait to see what Gods plan is for me!


 

Meet Keara VooKeara_Side

City:

Barrie

Favourite Subject:

I don’t know. Drama, probably? Or maybe music. I love the Arts in general.

Random fact about You:

I personally own more than 300 books.

Outside of school you love to:

I like acting, camping, singing, playing my ukulele, writing, volunteering with kids, reading books, learning languages, travelling, playing badminton and volleyball (but not competitively).

What you appreciate most about InsideOut:

I really like how our small group discussions approach everyday life from a Christian perspective. It can be easy to get caught up in your typical high school nonsense, because you’re surrounded by it all the time, but my small group has helped me approach it from a Christian perspective, which helps me focus more on God when I make choices, rather than on what’s happening in the moment or what people are pressuring me in to.

What you hope God does in you on this trip:

I’m hoping that God will humble me during this trip, but give the the confidence to serve Him openly and do it well. I also hope He will teach me ways that I can love and serve others without feeling the gap in social status. We’re all human; I just want to learn how to serve humbly and be humbled, and love others unconditionally.
