Dave and Rosemary DiTrolio
Serving in Paraguay, Latin America Caribbean
David and Rosemarie first arrived in Paraguay in 1983 for a two-year period to help plant churches. Rose did translation work every night in the services held to start churches. During the day, Rose worked in the office that coordinated the simultaneous planting of 15 churches. David is a very multifaceted, talented individual so he did all kinds of things from fixing cars, equipment to videotaping the services, etc. In 1985 their two-year term ended and they returned to the States to itinerate. While itinerating the Lord confirmed to David that he and Rosemarie should return to Paraguay.
Upon returning to Paraguay, David continued with church planting and was on the Paraguayan Assemblies of God as a presbyter until 1994. Right before a missionary meeting the Lord again spoke to David to get ready to take over the running of the Latin America Child Care program (now called ChildHopeonline) in Paraguay. David is the General School Superintendent over five Paraguayan schools and Rosemarie is the Academic Director, plus facilitating the Sponsorship program between the students and their sponsors in the United States. Until returning to the United States to itinerate this past June 2017 they were also pastoring Asuncion International Christian Church, which is a church for English speaking expatriates and for Paraguayans who want to learn more English.
They were in the United States visiting churches and raising much-needed support until January 2019. Since returning, they have been involved in promoting ChildHope schools in Paraguayan AG churches. Rosemarie had been working with MA Tiffany Armstrong in the development of the University Ministry CONNEXION (Chi Alpha Paraguay). They continue to pray for more laborers to help with children and university ministries in Paraguay. Please contact them if you are interested in getting more information, to sponsor a child, or becoming a part of what God is doing in Paraguay!

John and Kristen Koeshall
Serving in Germany, Europe
My name is John Koeshall together with my wife Kristen and our kids, we are missionaries to secular University students in Germany.
Germany isn’t what you might call the classic mission field. Most folks are comfortably well off and steeples can been seen literally everywhere. And yet, it’s clearly a secular nation, with an aging Christian population and a post-Christian youth. The Guardian, a British newspaper, picks up on this phenomena and sites a study, which couldn’t find a single person under the age of 28 who believed in God in former communist East Germany.* Of course, there ARE Christians in that age bracket, and yet the study exposes how few there are. When we first began serving in Berlin, Germany, we were astounded to discover that of the 140,000 University students, there were only about 400 who identified themselves as Christian, a staggering 0.3% of the student population.
Numbers give a big-picture view of this mission field, but even up close and personal you see the lostness on their faces.
This is our mission: To plant a Students for Christ group in every University city of Germany, to disciple the believer, and to reach the pre-Christian.
As a result…
… we mentor student leaders from across Germany
… we serve as national directors for Studenten für Christus (Students for Christ – Germany)
… we plan biannual training conferences for student leaders from 13 different cities in Germany
… we provide Europe-wide training opportunities for missionaries and national workers on an annual basis.
… we serve on the European commission developing strategies for reaching secular peoples.
And we LOVE what we do! God is reaching, training, and sending out students to be business leaders, teachers, missionaries,
Partner with us in prayer and/or giving, because only together can we fulfill the mission of God among students in Germany.
Serving in Honduras, Latin America Caribbean
I spent the last two years serving as a Missionary Associate in Guanajuato, Mexico. I was involved in helping with children’s ministry in the local churches, from VBS to children’s church as well as helping to train teachers. I absolutely love Mexico and believe God has great things in store for His church there.
In June, 2017 I was commissioned as a fully appointed missionary going out on special assignment. I thought I was going back to Mexico when I began this whole process, but I soon discovered that God had another plan for me. I have been asked to join the team in Honduras. Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America and many suffer because of the high poverty rate. It also holds claim to the city which has been named the murder capitol of the world, San Pedro Sula, because of it’s high gang violence. Many children live in single parent homes or they don’t have parents at all and are living with other relatives. The children and youth of Honduras are looking for a place to belong, they are looking for a place to call “family” where they feel valued and loved and right now, they are finding it with the gangs.
So dream with me for a moment, of a Honduras that has done a complete 180 degree turn. It is no longer known for the high violence rates because the children and youth are finding a place to call “home,” people to call “family,” they are feeling loved and valued because they have found hope in Jesus Christ! TOGETHER, you and I can help make that possible!
My heart is to work alongside the national church of Honduras developing and cultivating children’s ministry by discipling and training teachers who in return will go out into their communities to evangelize and bring kids into the church where they can be discipled!
Will you be a part?
