Global Shore Opportunities exists to bring the light of Jesus into the dark of the world.
David De La Rosa grew up in Tsawwassen, BC, and is blessed to have visited Guatemala twice, and both times were tremendous experiences. He felt called to work with Global Shore Opportunities while visiting the school last spring and hearing all the student singing “How Great is Our God.” In that moment, he knew he wanted to be a part these students’ bright futures. After four months on the ground in 2018, David has committed to joining our 2019 staff for nine months. David is excited to be in Guatemala again, to work alongside the amazing staff and students that are a part of the ministry.
The financial need for David’s 2019 work term is 55% raised at this point. If you want to give towards this second year of ministry, please click through the links below.
Matthew Horvath is from Waterdown, ON, and has previously participated in a short-term missions trip to Nicaragua. He was homeschooled for most of his life, and studied in the science department at Redeemer University, earning his Bachelor’s degree in 2015. Matthew loves learning, enjoys working with children, and has a desire to help people learn about the way the world God created works, and how they fit in it. When the Holy Spirit nudged him towards Global Shore Opportunities, the TEFL Assistant and Homeschooling position seemed to be the perfect fit! Matthew is excited to see what kind of adventure God has planned for him, as well as how he can help the students in Guatemala, both educationally and spiritually.
Matthew’s ministry has been 64% funded. If you want to give towards Matthew’s year of ministry with GSO, please click through the links below.
