Following pastorates near Valdosta, and in Hazlehurst GA, John and Judy Whitener felt called to become missionaries and moved to San Jose, Costa Rica to learn Spanish. A year later they moved to Quito, Ecuador where they lived for four years and then re-located to Guadalajara, Mexico. They have lived and ministered for twenty-plus years in Mexico. Their ministry includes the Bible Institute, Fuego del Cielo; a Mission Agency, Fuego a las Naciones; a drama group; and local church ministry. Their desire is to reach a million souls for Christ in Latin America through evangelism and teaching the gospel.
