Meet The Team
The Saleeby Family
The Saleeby Family moved to Guatemala in August 2017, obeying the call of God and sent by Him through their home church in North Carolina, Faith Baptist Church. They have wholeheartedly committed their lives to following Jesus. They are passionate about making disciples and training others to do the same, seeking no place left where the gospel has not been heard in Guatemala. Joseph works full-time as the Guate22 team leader. Christy supports and assists Joseph in the ministry, while homeschooling their three daughters, Hannah, Jordyn and Layla. Whenever possible, the family joins in the ministry together. Click the Blogger link below to visit their blog.
