Life Builders International also known as Patton Ministry International is building lives with a great commission purpose in Guatemala. Jason and Tressa Patton are missionaries in a community of Guatemala City called Santa Fe. This area has some of the greatest needs in the entire country of Guatemala. There are many spiritual strongholds in the area and this is the reason for the Patton’s location.
The vision of Patton Ministries International is to reach people with the message of Jesus, establish Bible and teaching programs with people in Latin American countries, as well as connecting and serving Christians that come to help. As a certified Flight Instructor, Jason’s role is to fly and teach. His flying experience has been a blessing in linking the ministry to the people in the area. Tressa is an elementary and special education certified teacher. Their ministry in Guatemala involves running programs such as school sponsorship/tutoring, aid to families-in-crisis, drug/alcohol rehab (providing access and follow-up/discipleship), feeding program, children’s programs, flight program, evangelism, Bible studies and discipleship programs.
Tressa is the daughter of Paul and Marly Evenson and a native of Albert Lea. She will be speaking at Calvary Baptist Church on 2016 Bridge Avenue here in Albert Lea Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. Worship Service. Visitors are welcome to come and hear Tressa share in their experiences on the mission field and how God is using this ministry to impact where no other missionary is reaching.
