Donald C. Grabow, Director. Don lives in Huntington Beach, CA with his wife Cindy where they raised their three daughters. He is currently a licensed contractor and CPSI playground safety auditor. Long before Don ever dreamed of bringing the word of God to the people of Mexico, God was preparing his heart and mind for missions. The Lord blessed Don early in life with an aptitude for the Spanish language which was nurtured throughout his career in the construction field as a journeyman plumber and then a playground contractor. Don went on on his first Mexico house build in 1989 and felt the call on his heart to minister in Mexico on a more continual basis. After a 5 year stay in North Idaho, the call of the Lord was so strong he and wife moved back to Huntington Beach to heed that call. Don graduated from TUMI (The Urban Ministry Institute) this year and is open for the Lord's leading in all areas, especially church planting and evangelism.
