Missionaries Serving in Guatemala


Jesse and Juanita

Jesse Brandow and Juanita Pascual are Orthodox missionaries living in the city of Huehue ("way-way") in western Guatemala, where they serve under the omophorion of His Eminence Athenagoras (Metropolitan of Mexico) and the blessing of Archimandrite Evangelios Patá (Vicar in Guatemala). Jesse is from Michigan in the USA and graduated with a Master of Divinity from St. Vladimir's Seminary in 2013. He began full-time mission work in Guatemala in 2015, teaching the lay Orthodox leaders as well as the seminarians at the St. Andrew Seminary in Aguacate. Juanita is from the village of Aguacate and served as a community health worker at the Fr. Andrés Girón Orthodox Medical Clinic in Aguacate, before beginning medical school in 2017. Jesse and Juanita were married in December of 2019 and have now dedicated their lives to serving Jesus Christ in the Orthodox Church in Guatemala. They plan to continue to work as missionaries in Guatemala for as long as the Lord allows. Currently Jesse continues to teach and support the efforts of the local clergy and lay leaders, and Juanita is continuing to study in medical school. Please pray for Jesse and Juanita as they continue to answer their missionary calling.
