Javier dreamed of being a radio announcer at a young age, and God has granted his desire as he serves in Kinship Radio’s Spanish ministry, part-time. Originally from Columbia, he became a missionary to Mexico with YWAM. In 1999, he moved to Wells, Minnesota where he and his family served families in need. Currently a full-time nurse, Javier continues to show compassion to others who are in his care. Javier and his wife Lucy continue to take short term mission trips. They are the parents of five children and have several grandchildren.
