 “I decided to work at i6eight to watch God work in the hearts and lives of the people who are in the community and to be a support for them, never for personal benefit. I love my work and I love my students.”

Lee Swartzentruber

Elder

“Our First trip to Rocky Point was in May of 2001. Our lives changed when i6eight began. As we became involved, we realized building once a year was no longer enough. It has become more spiritual and life changing, it is no longer just a building project.”

Gavin Robertson

Elder

“We are called to love God and love others. i6eight is devoted to doing just that, so I am humbled to join them.”

Brad St.Louis

Elder

I first became involved with i6eight when a friend invited  me on a build in October of 2015. There was a strong emphasis on God’s word, his power to transform and a life surrendered. I immediately wanted to bring back the rest of the family.”

Mark Yoder

“I was a college
basketball coach for 27 years and now a Registered Nurse running a dialysis clinic. While we do many things to serve the community in Mexico, we never lose sight of why. The focus is put on the Gospel.

 “I love being able to serve others and I am blessed to serve alongside those who are passionate about seeing lives changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”
