Administrator - Mexico - Javier and Mily Argüello
Known for his organizational skills and extensive connections throughout the area, this Mexican national was born and raised in Saltillo, MX. Jim first met Javier in July of 2005 after landing in Saltillo looking for the connection the God had for him. Armed with only a scrap of paper with the name Javier Argüello written on it, Jim looked Javier up in the phone book. After choosing from several listed there, he called and Voilá, the right one the first time. The connection was made. Since that time Javier has organized and executed tens of thousands of meals and many events for LAM. He has traveled thousands of miles alongside Jim and Pam in the U.S., Cuba, Honduras and Costa Rica. They are the face of Latin American Ministry in Mexico.

What caught our attention was the phrase, "My mother took us to a feeding center where we found Jesus." He told of finding a new life and how that faith and a feeding center had kept them alive. It was from that humble beginning that he and wife Milka now operate the Lopez Mateo feeding center. It is his desire to give back that pushes them to reach out to the poor children that come to the Wings of Hope feeding center which meet
