Today, I talk to Javier and Kelly Amaya.  They became disciples in 1983 while in college. Javier graduated from Brown University with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and Kelly from Boston College with a degree in Psychology and a concentration in Spanish. (Javier later obtained his master’s degree in Christian Ministries from Harding University.)  Javier and Kelly were high school sweethearts and married in 1986. They are parents of 3 adult children and 3 grandchildren. The Amaya’s have served in the full-time ministry for 31 years. Their journey has taken them from Boston, to Florida, Mexico, Guatemala, and Los Angeles. They returned to Boston in 2011 to lead the Boston Spanish Ministry. Their passion is to see lives transformed by the power of God and to be used by God to raise up leaders for service in his Kingdom.

In this episode they share:

  • How they met in high school
  • Their toughest times spiritually
  • When they saw God work most clearly
  • Their ministry of 400+ Spanish-speaking disciples in Boston
  • Advice for raising healthy kids on the mission field
  • Things they'd do differently
