When Deanna was 8 years old, a missionary came to her school and shared about the missionary life. She immediately knew that she wanted to be a missionary in Mexico. Deanna has served in New York City and in the Philippines in 2007-08, she is serving the Lord alongside the Barillaro family in Mexicali, Mexico. She is involved with the Children’s Ministry at Calvary Chapel Mexicali and teaches English to the primary school age children. She asks that we pray for Mexico as a country, for their Homeschool ministry, and for the children’s home (Casa de Tesoros).
