Paths of Hope
Billy and Kate Greenman have been serving in Peru for more than 10 years.
Born and raised in Southeastern Michigan, we now call Lima, Peru, home. Our first experience with Peru was during 2001. At 15, we had just finished our freshman year of high school and both signed up for the same 3-week trip co-led by FPCD and Ward Church (Northville).
Neither can say we remember much about each other during those 18 days but we do know that upon returning home, a seed was planted in each of our hearts. After 10 years of short-term volunteering, we both felt a calling to transition into full-time ministry. Billy moved in March 2009, and Kate arrived in June 2011.
Over the years we have held various roles from volunteer coordinators to directors of a ministry to abandoned children, where we worked closely with the staff at 6 children’s homes and the Peruvian government.
After seeing a great need in support from children’s home graduates, we now lead Paths of Hope’s mentoring ministry for teens and young adults who currently or have lived in residential care.
