I [Laurie] started working with GTD back in 2008. I have served as the Prosperity Director and Costa Rica Missions Director, in addition, up until 2018 I attended almost every event as support staff. My specialty on most trips has always been cooking, the kitchen is my happy place!!
Before I began working for GTD I was a Realtor. Through the years that I've worked for GTD I maintained my Real Estate license and returned to it 3 years ago. While wearing many hats with GTD my passion has always been on the mission field in Costa Rica and our Destination Trips. Because of this, it has been my dream to transition out of a full time position with GTD by supporting myself financially to allow GTD the freedom to hire others who can help support the demands of the ministry. In return, I can focus on what I do best in this ministry which is missions and maybe a little cooking on the side! Now that I am in a very part time role, I am able to contribute more to the ministry as a Financial Ministry Partner. As a Real Estate Agent, I work with one of the Top Teams in the area. Just this past month I was ranked #6 in our office out of 435 realtors and our team was ranked #2! In many ways it has been a true blessing to work with the Vanessa Leonard Group at Keller Williams. No matter whether a client is looking to upsize, downsize, invest, relocate, buy, sell, purchase a second home, refer a friend, or just needs advice we are here to help.
On a side note, I met Vanessa on a GTD trip in Utah where she and her husband hiked one of the most rigorous hikes in and through the Virgin River!

J.A.G. / JERRY & ANN GARNER [2022 TABLE SPONSORS]
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to Jerry & Ann Garner, Doug’s parents who have given so generously from the inception of GTD up until now.
They have been a rock and a strong pillar to this ministry. From financial giving, prayers,
providing an original office base, donating food and goods for trips, cooking, coming to the
rescue in times of need [flat tires, broken down vehicles] volunteering to help, to so much
more that we could ever list here.
For them, this ministry has been an extension of who they are….giving, supportive, helpful,
generous, passionate, kind, thoughtful, prayerful, loving, loyal, supportive and caring.
It’s not an understatement to say Jerry and Ann’s love and dedication to GTD has
been a ministry of the heart and that God has used them in a mighty way to help grow, build
and sustain the ministry. Together they have helped GTD to impact many lives over the years.
THANK YOU!!!! Thank you for your double BROZE Table Sponsorship!
WE LOVE YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!
