Juan carlos & evelyn johanna portillo
Juan Carlos and Evelyn Johanna Portillo, along with their children, Rebekah, Benjamin, and Hannah, have served as a pilot/mechanic family in Oaxaca, Mexico, with the Mission Aviation Fellowship affiliate program Alas de Socorro Mexico (ADSM) for 13 years. Recently they completed a two-year assignment in Paramaribo, Suriname, with the MAF affiliate program Surinaamse Zendings Vliegdienst (SZV). They have now accepted an assignment to Guatemala with another MAF affiliate, AGAPE, where they started their missionary service in 1998. This transition includes helping Benjamin get settled in Colorado for an internship at IdRaHaJe Christian Camp before moving to Guatemala.
After serving in different roles within ADSM and SZV, which helped the programs stabilize and expand, Juan Carlos will take on a new role as Director of Maintenance for the programs in both Guatemala and Honduras while remaining available for special projects in Oaxaca, Mexico.
