John Elmore is a missionary we supports who is assigned to the Methodist Church of Chile as mission volunteer coordinator.
He and his wife, Maria Cristina Hurtado, are based in Angol in southern Chile, where he is affiliated with the Methodist Agricultural School for Mapuche Indians. John spent a dozen years in Iquique in northern Chile, two of those as an individual volunteer in mission and 10 as a commissioned missionary. In Angol, John and Cristina teach Sunday school and are deeply involved in the music ministry of the Villa Emmaus Methodist Church.
The school was established in 1920. It has more than 200 students enrolled in courses that provide basic high school education and training in various aspects of agriculture and animal husbandry. John welcomes and organizes the activities of mission volunteer teams from outside Chile that come to work along with students, often in construction projects.
