Frank & Luz Zajicek

Frank and Luz are missionaries in Santa Marta, Colombia. They met while Frank was serving as a single missionary in Colombia, the rest is history. They first served with SAM doing church planting and discipleship in San Ignacio, Bolivia. From there, they moved to Colombia to minister in Luz’s home country. Their humble spirits, compassionate hearts, and gentle demeanors cannot conceal the deep passion and love they have for the Colombian people.

Their ministry focus is to the youth and families of Gaira, a community outside of Santa Marta. Through OANSA, an Awana-like outreach to the children and youth, the Zajiceks are seeing entire families transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Frank and Luz open up their home in Gaira for regular community bible studies. You may also find Frank occasionally up in the Guajira desert of Colombia, supporting the work of the Wayuu church.
