Jimmy Dukes grew up in a Christian family in Alabama, but lived a rebellious life. After years of rebellion, God turned his covenant child back toward himself on a missions trip to Huanta, Peru where Jimmy began to feel a call for missions.
Nadia (Nathaniel Gutierrez’s cousin) is native to Peru, and came to Christ as a young adult. After studying Law for 6 years, she left her career to pursue missions. Jimmy and Nadia were married in 2007. They have 3 little girls : Ana, Isabela and Sara.
The Dukes are missionaries with Presbyterian Evangelistic Fellowship (PEF), and are continuing the work Nathaniel Gutierrez’s parents and grandparents started and the work this church has supported for some time. They work to establish healthy churches and to bring the light of the Gospel to the unreached peoples in the Andes Mountains.
