The Leiva Family
God led Mynor and Walda Leiva to leave their careers and become full-time missionaries to their own people. To have a Guatemalan family who represent the traits we seek to teach the boys is an invaluable asset...
The Rolfe Family
Matt and Brooke Rolfe are currently serving at our Guatemala Academy. They are lovers of people, they enjoy discipling youth, and they are talented musicians - all of which brings much joy to the academy!
Dennilson Lopez: Dennilson manages the facilities at BVSA. "Nicho" has maintained a high level of integrity throughout his career as a Rhino, and it is now a blessing to have him on staff. His humble spirit and hard-working attitude are his character traits that everyone notices right away.
Currently, Nicho oversees the facilities at BVSA Guatemala. He does everything from maintenance, to cleaning, to general repairs. He is also obtained his mechanic certificate by studying on the weekends. He also helps Allan train our girls team, "Las Rinas."
Nicho has had a very difficult life; we've been through many ups and downs with him and his family over the last 7 years. Through it all he has developed a strong faith in the Lord, and we are excited to see how God continues to use him.

Allan & Glendy Marroquin: Allan graduated from the 2015 BVSA class. In that year he was both our varsity MVP as well as leading scorer. But because of his development as a young man, and his heart for Christ and for his own community, we knew we wanted to bring him onto our team.
Allan has a promising career as a soccer coach, and as a leader of young men. He now works for BVSA full-time in both capacities. He is also the head coach, and founder, of our girls program, "Las Rinas". Allan is married to his high-school sweetheart, Glendy, and they are expecting their first child in May of 2018.
Glendy serves at BVSA as a teacher, and also as an assistant coach to Las Rinas girl's team. She is currently studying at the University on the weekends. When she graduates, she will become one of the first ever from the entire village of Buena Vista to graduate college! Allan and Glendy have a daughter named Stacy.

Darwin Ramos: Darwin is currently in his last year as a Rhino, while working part-time at BVSA. Without question, he is developing into a strong leader. He assists Dennilson with managing facilities, which includes doing anything from mowing grass, sweeping the gym and classrooms, and washing the team vans.
What sets Darwin apart is his unique desire to serve others. Humble and helpful, he is always the first one to jump when something needs done. Its a quality that has earned him the opportunity to work for BVSA, and as he continues to grow we envision him transitioning into a leadership role.
Darwin is currently 17 years old and an important member of the varsity Rhino's defense.
