They moved to Guatemala in July 2013 and are now serving full-time as Co-Directors of JPLA.

Dave and Sue Crites
Agriculture and Sponsorship Coordinators
Dave and Sue Crites have ministered in Guatemala for many years. After having their hearts broken for the children there (specifically a very young mother with a baby) they felt that they needed to move to Guatemala and do more. They first visited James Project of Guatemala in 2017, looking for a way to help. They felt called to join the team and became full-time missionaries, living in Monjas, Jalapa, in June of 2018.
Alan and Vanessa Wagler
Coming to Guatemala Soon!
The Wagler family (including daughter, Brittany) has been involved in missions since 2011, both in Bulgaria and Guatemala. During these trips, God quickly humbled their hearts and they recognized His call to be the hands and feet of Jesus. They are currently raising resources and plan to join the JPLA staff during the summer of 2019, where they will work with agriculture, in the office, on social media, and other areas.
