Beth and Larry Smith
Note from Beth and Larry: We want to thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts, for your compassion for the Kenyan people from the year 2016 - 2019. By God’s strength, we joyously exceeded our initial two-year commitment. We love the Kenyans, and they love us, truly together. We are now back in Alaska and will freshen Larry’s American clinical and hospital skills.

Pastor at Sea - George Mastroyanis
Pastor George Mastroyanis is a pastor at Community Covenant Church.
His ministry focus is serving passengers and crew members aboard cruise ships. Sailing in Alaskan and international waters, George and his wife Sandie are an integral part of Community Covenant's mission to bring Christ's hope, healing, and wholeness to our community and to our world.
Missionaries Dwight and Mary Jo Hansen envisioned establishing a nurturing sanctuary for children in Tepic, Mexico. Nana's House was founded in 2006 with just a few girls and began its partnership with Community Covenant in 2015. The idea for Nana's House was to make a home that is just as safe, happy, and healthy as our own homes. The children are not warehoused in an institution but lovingly raised by well-trained paid staff. Starting with one House for just ten girls, Nana's House has grown into two girls' and a boys' homes.
