Hey! I'm Ronny! I went on the World Race in 2014, and my life has honestly never been the same. I met my wife, Casey, here at Adventures, and adventures we have had - the most recent of which is becoming parents to the most adorable son! Whatever comes our way, we're excited to continue walking out the story God has for us!

Known as the Land of Eternal Spring, the weather in Guatemala is as warm as its hospitable people. You’ll spend your time near Antigua with our Adventures in Missions base team, including several local missionaries and World Race alumni!

Along the way, our base staff will teach and equip you with God’s word. You will also work alongside them to build relationships with the surrounding communities and show God’s love in tangible ways. As you jump into this established ministry and work alongside other missionaries you’ll find yourself playing soccer with local kids or teaching English in a local school. You’ll worship alongside other missionaries and use your gifts to glorify God with each day in Guatemala.

The Dominican Republic shares an island with Haiti, and after the earthquake in 2010, the country became a refuge for thousands of displaced people. Although known for its vast sugar plantations, the nation’s economy depends on tourism. Political corruption is a lasting issue, along with the expanding gap between wealthy and poor. Will you share the freedom of life in Christ with people who need to know Him?
