Nate and Kelsey Roy
Directors of Pre-Transition Program, Sponsorship Assistant, Grounds Work

Nate and Kelsey Roy first came to James Project of Latin America in June 2016 on a missions trip, with an open heart of possibly moving to Guatemala. Before getting married, they both had a desire to serve overseas. While in Guatemala, they fell in love with the people in the community, the beautiful landscape of the country, but most importantly the orphans living at Shadow. During their time at the project, their main role will be to develop and implement a Pre-Transition program. Through this they will teach the kids ministry, trades, and life skills to take and help them be community changers.
