Roberto & Cali Larios
Hi, we are Roberto and Cali Larios! Roberto is indigenous to Guatemala, he comes from the Mayan group of Achi of Baja Verapaz. while Cali is from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We met while we were both serving in ministry in Guatemala in 2016, and combined we have done mission work in over 40 countries. Roberto began his journey into missions through YWAM in 2012, since then he has completed his discipleship training school, Bible school in Nicaragua, and international outreaches. Cali began her journey in 2014, with Adventures in Missions with whom she completed, a 3 month trip in Central America, World Race 11n11, led World Race 11n11 followed by World Race Gap year, and went on to join staff in Guatemala as a mentor.
Now married we are onto our next kingdom journey, staying in Guatemala our goal is to open a ministry coffee shop. We plan to use the coffee shop for two causes, one to serve every person the Lord would bring through those doors, and secondly to disciple and train the coffee shop staff.
OUR VISION is to raise up young Guatemalans through discipleship and leadership development and to equip them emotionally, spiritually, and financially to be sent to the Nations. Our hope is that as we train young adults in leadership that God will grow their influence amongst their families, their villages, their Nation, and to the ends of the Earth. We believe anyone can make a difference in the world. We want to give young Guatemalans the opportunity to do just that. As they grow in relationship with God, we believe their families will find unity, reconciliation, freedom from addictions. As they grow in wisdom in the word of God we believe they will bring light to places of darkness. As they chase the plans of God for their lives we believe we will see freedom break out and hope spread like wildfire.
