Mustard Tree Missions (MTM) was founded and is directed by Rick Burton of Meridian, MS. He has been active in leadership in local churches for many years and was also a youth leader for several years. It was his involvement with the youth ministry of his church which first led him to start taking mission trips to Venezuela. Originally from the Pittsburgh, PA area, Rick moved south over 40 years ago and began a career as an insurance agent. After owning his own agency for many years, God led him to sell it in order to give more time to missions. Rick is ordained by Global Alliance Network. He and his wife, Lokey, live in Meridian, MS.

Juan Grateron - Missions Representative in Barquisimeto, Venezuela Juan represents MTM in Barquisimeto and surrounding communities. He is also the founder and director of Fundación Gotas de Amor (Drops of Love Foundation). We first met Juan when he was about 15 years old and worked as a translator for us. We have kept in touch with him for over 20 years, watching him mature in the Lord and in the ministry. He has been involved with missions most of his life and has a heart to help hurting people in his country of Venezuela. His foundation is currently furnishing food to Iglesia Dulce Refugio (Sweet Refuge Church) that is hosting a children’s feeding program in the poor neighborhood of La Sabila just outside of Barquisimeto. Juan grew up in this neighborhood and MTM has ministered in this community many times during the years we traveled to Barquisimeto. Juan, his wife, Maria, and their children attend Iglesia Vida de Cristo (Life of Christ Church) pastored by José Alberto and Lina Durán in the community of El Tostao.
