Andi: As a kid I grew up loving sports, both playing and watching them. It was a dream of mine to work as a statistician with a professional team. I went to college with that dream in mind. My time at school I spent working as a student supervisor of game-day management for all sports events. Throughout those four years I worked at a sports summer camp, interned in an athletic department at a local high school, took two separate trips to Guatemala, and spent the summer of 2013 interning at headquarters with Push The Rock. After my second trip to Guatemala I sensed that God was calling me to something more and began seeking God’s will and direction for my life. The following months God did some amazing things in my life and opened my heart and mind to move to Guatemala long-term.

Now my amazing wife, Krishauna, and I have been living here in Guatemala for almost two years having officially started with Push The Rock full-time in October of 2017.

Shauna is from Ohio, near Troy. She’s one of ten kids, five of them biological and five adopted. Shauna attended Cederville University for her freshman year but transferred to Grand Canyon, a fully online school, when her family moved to Guatemala in 2011. There her family continues to run and operate a ministry called Hope for Home Ministries that focuses on supporting and loving orphans and kids with disabilities. They operate two group homes (small-scale orphanages) for kids, work with families in neighboring communities, and operate a birthing center.

Someday she hopes to develop a curriculum to train special education teachers how to better teach special education here in Guatemala.

Andi and Shauna are proud new parents of Samuel Elias, who was born on July 5, 2018.

The best lesson I learned about sportsmanship was…

Playing in a basketball tournament at age 14 two of my teammates, after the game, went and shook the hands of the referees saying thanks for officiating the game so that we could play. After every game in that tournament they did the same thing. This really stood out to me, because usually the referees are blamed for bad calls, but this showed amazing sportsmanship and the love of Christ toward the officials. The two teammates were great examples to our whole team and every game and year we played following that we all followed their example.

Bucket list sport arena or event I want to attend…
