Nancy Lemus was born and raised in Southern California. She graduated from Biola University with a Major in Art Education and taught Art at Newcomb Middle School in Long Beach. In Nancy’s final year at Biola University she went on a short term mission trip to Guatemala. Her life would never be the same. God touched her heart and she returned to Guatemala several times on short trips until 2003, when she felt lead to become a full time missionary. A supporter and friend since its beginnings, Nancy began working full-time at The Jeremiah Project alongside her husband Josue in 2013. Nancy tutors and leads the children and youth in daily bible studies as well as organizes much of the educational activities, including writing prompts, reading time, games, and more. The children love her energetic and loving spirit as well as her trust, kindness, and openness with them.
