Marc and Dail Salzarulo, Founders

Marc and Dail Salzarulo founded Harvest Expeditions in 2008. Together they have served in children's ministry from cradle to college for over 40 years.  They have a passion and a love for people and the mission field which brought them to full time service at Hopewell Children's Home in Belize.

Marc serves on the Harvest Expeditions board as President.  Marc was voted in as President in January 2018 and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the position.

Luke Salzarulo, Associate Founder

Luke made it his mission and worked tirelessly on each and every aspect of completing all the necessary paperwork and filings in order to establish Harvest Expeditions as a 501c3 non-profit entity in the State of California.  Without his diligence and tremendous effort the vision of Harvest Expeditions would not have been realized.

Guy Stewart, Vice-President

“I was saved at about 21 years of age and married my wife Wendy when I was 25. We have two grown sons, Nick and Joey.

In 2011 I began to pray that God would show me a mission to get involved in and to be passionate about. I was drawn to Belize and I stumbled upon Hopewell Children’s home.

After a visit there in 2016, I felt the Lord calling me to involve myself as much as I could to help the children prepare for a better future.

I have been privileged to have been asked to serve on the board of Harvest Expeditions. It is my dream that I will be able to be used for many years to make a difference in Belize.

Judy Belty, Donor Relations

Judy felt a call on her life for missions ministry after 2007, when she went to the country of Thailand with ZOE International. She later became a friend to Hopewell Children’s home when she served as Secretary on the founding board. Since then, she has led 2 teams to Belize. Judy wanted to be a part of raising support for Hopewell, to insure that these kids have all the resources they need to thrive.

Connie Meyer

I am a mother of 3 and grandma to 5, plus foster grandchildren as God brings them to our family.  Married 11 years to an amazing man, so that blesses me with 2 step-children, 5 step-grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.  We are snowbirds with homes in Ohio and Florida, so we have the best of both worlds.  Children are my love and passion. Being involved with Hopewell Children’s Home since 2010 has been a blessing, honor and privilege.  It has been an amazing journey and seeing God’s hand on this mission has taken my faith to a new level.  God and family are the most important things in my life and it is so wonderful to help share these values with the Hopewell children.
