Ministry Location: Rio Grande Valley, Texas
Diann ministers in the extreme southern tip of Texas, in a region bordering Mexico known as the Rio Grande Valley. She works works on several levels addressing the issue of systemic poverty, which is prevalent throughout this border area.
Diann's primary focus—the Rio Grande Valley Literacy Center—is a development ministry specifically targeting Latino adults who want to address their lack of education or English skills. The Literacy Center offers year-round ESL classes and GED preparation courses throughout Hidalgo County. This particular ministry has a direct correlation to poverty, and allows Diann to be the presence of Christ on the U.S./Mexico border.
