Joshua & Allie Crabbs
Hello! I’m Josh. I first worked with Casas por Cristo when I was 16 years old on a trip to Juárez. In 2006, I packed all my belongings and moved from Akron, Ohio to El Paso, Texas to work with Casas as a summer intern. In 2007, I was officially brought on staff as a Juárez Field Coordinator. I married my beautiful wife in 2014, and in 2015 we moved to the Dominican Republic where we served together as Dominican Field Coordinators until our son, James, was born. In 2017, I took on a new level of responsibility as the Dominican Field Director. It has been quite an adventure learning and living in the Dominican, and we are honored to play a role in the incredible work God is doing here. My name is Allie, and I first heard about Casas por Cristo in 2012 while interning at Colegio Cristiano Mañana Gloriosa. God captivated my heart for missions when I was 16 years old while working with an orphanage, ironically, in Juárez. After that, I spent the majority of my summers working with different organizations outside the U.S. In 2013, I graduated from Dallas Christian College, then worked for Colegio Cristiano Mañana Gloriosa until I met Josh and followed him to the Dominican Republic.

Hello, my name is Jonatan. I was born and raised in Juarez, Mexico, and live with my parents and brother. We have lived close to the SHOC for the past three years, and my church is also close by. My first build with Casas por Cristo was as a volunteer in 2020 when Covid started and local volunteers were needed to build homes. My duties are to deliver materials to job sites and help maintain the SHOC and warehouse. I enjoy the work I do at Casas and also working for Christ.
Hi everyone! My name is Cayla Kiehl. I am originally from Missouri where I was born and raised. I graduated from the University of Missouri in December 2020. I went on my first trip with Casas in the summer of 2018. Soon after, I felt God leading me towards pursuing missions with Casas further. I spent the next two summers as an intern, first building homes in Juárez, then working in their finance department in El Paso where I met my husband, Justin. Most recently, I was able to serve in the Admin department through Casas' residency program before joining staff in September 2021 as a Finance & Store Coordinator. God has been actively working on my heart through Casas and the city of El Paso, and I am excited to be serving in God’s Kingdom and loving His people however He calls me to!

Hello, my name is Lalo. I was born in the southern state of Chiapas, Mexico, and moved to Juarez in 2002. I have attended my church for 20 years, and I met my wife Jazmin in our church where we were both baptized. We have four sons, ages 2 to 14. My first build was in March 2022 when I received my home from Casas por Cristo. I deliver house materials to the families, take care of teams who stay at the SHOC, and help maintain the SHOC and warehouse of trailers, tools, and materials. Casas por Cristo is a beautiful and very special ministry that I love because it helps people and shares the Gospel, with the aim of saving souls for Christ. I like being a part of this and knowing that the work I do is for God.

Darrell & RuthAnn Story
Hello, ladies and gentlemen. We are Darrell and RuthAnn Story. We serve as the Nicaragua Field Manager and Field Coordinator. Darrell was raised in Honduras as a missionary kid, and RuthAnn was raised by a strong Christian Mom in Davenport, Iowa. We both have served our professional careers and have retired. We knew in 2019 that God was opening our hearts to serve him using our hands (Ex. 31:3-6) with Casas por Cristo. Our four daughters, four son-in-law‘s, and nine grandchildren are equally excited to see how God writes the next chapter of our Story as people come to know Christ through Casas.
