The Salley Family
Thank you for visiting our site! In my testimony below I share about how God called me to Costa Rica way back in 1989. Whew.. that was a long time ago! God has done some amazing things since then and we invite you come and partner with us and be a part of this great adventure that God has called us to.
Hello everyone, I am Joanna- I minister to pastors' wives and disciple ladies. In my spare time I love to sit on our 2nd floor patio and read while overlooking the beautiful landscape of Costa Rica.
Hi, I'm Matthew. My wife Kayla and I are career missionaries with GC2 Ministries. I am also a photographer and cinematographer/ video editor. I love serving through worship and helping others experience God through worship. My hobbies include playing instruments and editing!
Hi, I'm Kayla! My husband and I serve alongside his parents as missionaries. I am passionate about women's ministry, especially for young women in college or their 20's. In my free time you will usually find me drinking coffee, sitting outside, or hanging out with our French bulldog Wilson!

HI! My name is Kevin. I am currently serving as middle school pastor at First Baptist in Lexington, SC. My wife, Stephanie, teaches first grade at Northside Christian. We plan to be a missionaries somewhere around the world and focus on leadership training and children's ministry. We want to work with children from broken backgrounds and bring them to Christ. We love to travel the world and proclaim His name.
Hi my name is Alexa. My hobbies are listening to music, and reading. I hope to work with animals in my future job.
I did not grow up in a Christian home but was saved in the third grade as a result of the church bus ministry. I knew God wanted me in full time Christian service; however, as I got older, I began to seek after my dream to become a jet pilot in the Air Force. When my youth leaders announced a missions trip to Costa Rica, I decided to go. During that week, God told me that was the place that He wanted me to be. The more I tried not to listen to God, the more He spoke to me. One night I knelt beside my bed telling God, “I’ll serve you but only after I’ve done what I want to do with my life.” At a revival meeting in our church, I went forward and gave my life to full time Christian service. I felt as if a 2 ton burden fell of my back. The very next day, I received a letter from the Air Force informing me that I was awarded a full 3 year scholarship and would need to take ROTC and join the Air Force after college. Receiving the letter had been a long time goal; now it meant nothing to me. God had replaced my desires with His.A few years later, I met my wife at Liberty University and God has confirmed our missionary call to Costa Rica.
Although I grew up in a loving Christian family it wasn’t until I was 17 that I accepted Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I got saved when I was young and I was baptized but there was no evidence that Christ was in my life. As a teenager, I felt such a void in my life that I tried to fill it with friends, drinking, smoking, anything to stop me from feeling so alone. I never really understood that I needed a personal relationship with Christ. It was on a missions trip to Europe that I realized that I needed to get straight with God and I received Him not just as Savior but as Lord as well.
