The Power At Work Team

Guatemala - Canada

 

Grant Lamb - PresidentGrant Lamb - President

 

Grant Lamb has been going to Guatemala since 2005. 

He sold his farm in 2010 and has since been going for 5 months a year. 

As he says - "I got hooked!" and so I continue to go. "It's my job!"

Grants love for Jesus is shown in his giving heart and his desire to get out and share the love God has put in his life. His testimony and his life verse are echoed in his actions as he loves and gives exuberantly to those he comes in contact with. He is living and giving Ephesians 3:20 every day, exceedingly and abundantly more than he could ask or think. Power At Work birthed as another way to share Gods love on that exceeding level and bless more the nation of Guatemala and beyond.

 

Anthony van Engen - VPAnthony van Engen - VP

 

Anthony van Engen has been working in Guatemala and Central America since 2004.

Anthony's desire to serve God where he was called has driven him to share the love of Jesus in practical ways to the people that surround him. He works with the youth in the workshop giving them practical work experience and hosts daily activities with the kids from the community. His greatest desire is to see God fulfill His purposes in the lives of everyone of the people he comes into contact with.

Carol Lamb ~ Director/TreasurerCarol Lamb ~ Director/Treasurer

Carol Lamb has been coming to Guatemala since 2015.  Carol had a desire to become active in missions for years but it was not until 2014 that she was able to fulfill that calling. Carols love for Jesus and His people shines through her open heart and has allowed her to speak into peoples lives and touch hearts all over Guatemala. Her hug-able personality is a great fit and just one of the ways she shares His love. Since 2015 she has adapted to life in Guatemala living there 5 months a year and while in Canada she advocates full time for Power At Work and the people we work with. 

Kelly Bill ~ DirectorKelly Bill ~ Director

 

 Kelly Bill is one of our directors. After her first trip to Guatemala she was taken with the Guatemalan people and the awesome work being done through Power At Work. Power At Work then asked her to be a part of the board of Directors. Since 2018 Kelly has been involved and is currently anticipating her next trip to Guatemala. Kelly and her husband Chris met Grant and Carol through a motorcycle fundraising ride. A friendship was quickly formed and a trip was  booked to Guatemala. Now Kelly shares in raising awareness and funds for the amazing programs offered through Power At Work. 


Joel Meidema - DirectorJoel Meidema - Director

Feeling called to step out of his comfort zone, Joel made his first trip to Guatemala in February of 2020. He instantly fell in love with the Guatemalan people. Often people go on missions trips thinking they will bless many. Joel quickly realized that he would be blessed Ephesians 3:20 Style. (more than he could ask or imagine.)

Power At Work is now being blessed with Joel's heart for serving as he joined the team on December 1, 2020. We all look forward to his return to Guatemala, and are blessed that he continues to serve where God has him in Canada.

Jan & Clare Balch ~ Secretary TeamJan & Clare Balch ~ Secretary Team

 

Clare and Jan joined the Power At Work team this past year as secretaries after experiencing Guatemala in 2014 with the Cayuga Christian Fellowship Church team. They were and still are inspired to go and help wherever they can. Both remained busy during their trip to Guatemala, Clare with painting a home and fence while Jan painted 8' murals for the children's rooms.  They enjoy serving and being the hands and feet of Christ here in Canada and perhaps in the future Guatemala again. 

 

 

Nim & Estephania - Sponsorship Program Nim & Estephania - Sponsorship Program

This amazing couple & their children began partnering with Power At Work together in June of 2020. Estefania had previously worked with Power At Work and other ministries for many years prior to June of 2020. Estephania has played a major part of getting our feeding programs off the ground and running. Estephania loves working with children. 

In 2020 we as a ministry felt led to ask them to be a part of the team and they began to oversee the Sponsorship Program, working directly with the families and children that are sponsored through the program. They reach out to each child and their family every month. Their home visits are God guided and they have great opportunities to speak into the lives of the families.

It is a huge blessing to have them on the team and to watch them grow together in God's love as they share his love with the communities we are in. 

              Edwin Ayfan Edwin Ayfan

Edwin joined the Power At Work team full-time in April 2021, tho in reality he was a part of the ministry and its beginnings.

Edwin grew up locally and met Anthony in 2004 during Anthony's first trip to Guatemala. Edwin was actually the first one assisted in what now has become our Child/Education Sponsorship Program, which assists 100 children & their families. 

Edwin was, and still is a very energetic kid that loved to help and get out and enjoy life, so he very quickly became involved wherever he could and has assisted over all these years faithfully.

Edwins love for God and desire to serve in whatever capacity made it easy to bring him onto the team. Edwin enjoys working in the shop with the yough, gardening, fixing electronics and bicycles and sharing with the community in different ways.

We look forward to seeing all the things he will be able to accomplish for the Kingdom as he serves God and his people.
