 Our Story

…Bobby & Willene Byrd began participating in short-term missions trips in 2005 and were so impacted by the spiritual needs of those in other parts of the world they knew over time that God was speaking to them through their experiences. In 2008, Bobby was presented the opportunity to visit potential ministry opportunity in Guatemala. Their lives would be forever changed by this trip. In August of 2010, Bobby & Willene followed God’s leading by moving to Guatemala and establishing World Reach Missions to be a part of advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

But why? Because, Jesus is the Example…

…Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heartHebrews 12:1-2
