Randy and Brenda Purcell
Serving in Guatemala
Randy and Brenda Purcell moved to Guatemala from Indianapolis, Indiana, in October of 1998. Their primary role is Missionary Ventures Directors for Central & Southern Guatemala.

The Purcells are using evangelistic films in remote areas as another way to help pastors reach the lost. Brenda also hosts a monthly pastors’ wives meeting in their home in addition to the monthly pastors’ breakfast held in the capitol city.
