Ministry Location: El Salvador
Ministry Focus: John and Audrey Van Belle are from Port Perry, Ontario. John has been a self-employed contractor for over 25 years. Audrey is a Registered Pharmacy Technician, working in pharmacies for over 25 years as well. They have four sons, Jonathan, Curtis, Andrew and Travis and one grandson, Austyn.
Having arrived in El Salvador in July 2015, John and Audrey are working with King's Castle Ministries. John oversees the construction projects, along with construction teams. Audrey works in the pharmacy at the onsite Medical Clinic and organizes the medical teams that come to work in the rural areas. As they continue to do hands-on ministry, they are reaching the local community with the love of Jesus Christ.
Ministry History: In November 2000, John & Audrey completed their first overseas missions trip, with a trip to Jamaica. From that time forward, God continued to grow the seed within them to reach others with the gospel through hands-on ministry. In September 2001, they took their first trip to Guatemala to work on the William Cornelius Vocational Training Centre. Over the years, they led many construction teams to Guatemala. It was on this first trip, that God told Audrey that they would one day do missions on a full-time basis. Many years later, in July 2011, when John & Audrey led a team to El Salvador, God then impressed upon John to do missions full-time. After much prayer and counsel, they were approved as fully appointed Global Workers in November 2012. After a year of preparation and fundraising, they spent 2014 in Costa Rica studying Spanish to prepare them for the work they would do in El Salvador.
