Mary Lou and Gary work with the Colombia Covenant in teaching principles of compassion, justice and mercy ministries and in formulating projects. We work on forming and brokering vibrant partnerships between Colombian ministries and U.S. entities and churches. Gary and Mary Lou participate in and lead a bi-weekly spiritual gathering of the pastoral couples in the Antioquia Conference. They meet quarterly for a spiritual retreat with the pastoral couples in the four Regional Conferences of Colombia. They teach, preach, give workshops and visit churches and regions when asked to do so to help out in the strengthening of the leadership within the churches and ministries.
