Raciel & Ilse Ramirez
Raciel and Ilse Ramírez have been working in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico since 2007. The church there has gone from just their family (3 at that time) to around 75 now. Before Guanajuato, they worked to establish a congregation in Comonfort, Guanajuato. They were supported and overseen initially by the church in Kosciusko, Mississippi, and have been fully supported and overseen by Northview since 2012 as the Kosciusko church has been planting new congregations in the state of Guanajuato.
They were married in 1999, and Raciel graduated from the Latin American Institute of Biblical Studies (ILEB) in 2004. Ilse graduated from ILEB in 2003. Besides being instrumental in their local ministry, she has also been very active in a ministry for women in missions called "Come Before Winter." They have 2 children: Annie, 13, and Samuel, 6.
Many Northview members have visited Guanajuato over the years, and the Ramirez family welcomes anyone who wants to come and visit them
