Anna Jimenez (Strom)

In the Fall of 2000, Anna Strom came as a student to Portantorchas from Estes Park, Colorado. With excellent Spanish, a servant's heart and attitude, and great leadership, we were happy to have her as a part of our family. As is the case with many of our students, we never heard from Anna again, until a few years back I heard again (I can't quite recall the reason or occasion).

Anna had moved to Honduras to work in the slums through a ministry called Servant Partners. Anna has been serving the urban poor through multiple means (you can check out her blog at or, from sharing the gospel with children, to partnering with churches to send missionaries into the harvest field.

In August of 2008, Anna married Guillermo Jimenez, a Honduran who shares Anna's passion for reaching out to those around him with the Gospel. Guillermo has a MA in Economic Development from Eastern University. Pray for Anna and Guillermo as they are finding ways in which the Lord will use their gifts and talents for His glory and honor.
