Lupe is from Lima, Peru. She worked as a social worker in Peru and after meeting and marrying Charlie, who was serving in mission in Peru, she worked translating educational materials and patient registrars at a hospital in the U.S. She volunteered with a pre-school and helped with a community meal program. Charlie and Lupe have two children, Charles (6) and Veronica (5).
Lupe observes, “All ten individuals in our Orientation class have the same goal to “serve people,” but it’s really interesting to me all the different ways we approach mission and the unique characteristics we each bring.”
