Joshua & Kelly Tucker

Joshua & Kelly Tucker are from Pennsylvania and joined Hope for Home in Guatemala in 2020. Joshua was friends with Daryl & Wanda Fulp before they moved to Guate and always appreciated the Fulps’ heart for children with special needs. Joshua & Kelly were excited to join the ministry as the first ever Sustainability Coordinators. The Lord has changed and molded their ministry many times over since moving to Guatemala. They began by developing a half-acre rented property into a garden where they produced nutrient-dense vegetables and herbs for the children in the group homes. After a flood destroyed the garden, the Lord opened an opportunity for them to facilitate some important restructuring of the ministry on the ground in Guatemala. This led the way to their current roles, which better match their strengths to the ministry’s needs. Kelly is the Director of Missionary Care for Hope for Home in Guatemala. She walks with incoming missionaries as they get established in their new home country and as they develop their roles on the team. She also facilitates regular team meetings and is passionate about creating space for healthy communication and creative problem-solving. She still loves gardening and how it can be used as a discipleship tool one day and her own personal therapy the next.
Joshua is McGyver, minus the mullet. His carpentry experience and engineering degree come in handy as he helps with projects in the ministry’s warehouse and in his role as the General Property Manager at Community of Hope, the future ministry base that is currently under development. He also has a deep heart for the men he meets on the street, many of whom struggle with alcoholism and know him by name. Besides keeping up with their two young children, they also serve on Hope for Home’s board in Guatemala, are excited about the small group they host in their home, and enjoy the natural conversations that develop with people as they walk around town, always on the lookout for the best avocados. To hear about their latest adventures, you can follow the Tuckers on Instagram or email them to receive quarterly email updates. Thank you!
