We are the Munguía Family

As you can see in the picture, we’re a family of seven. Before we got married Ivan had the idea of having a big family and always said he wanted to have eight children. When Ivan and Laura were in talks of getting married, Laura agreed to have “four kids, and then we evaluate if we want more” Ivan quickly said “we have a deal”.

We currently live in Guadalajara Mexico. One of our main ministries is pastoring a small home Bible Church. We love to get involved in camp ministry: teaching, playing music, dorm leading, guiding young people, and organizing games. 

For you to get us to know better, we have been adding to our blog  posts about us:

Also, we decided to make a survey. Below you will find the answers of each family member. If you want us to add any additional questions please make suggestions at the end of this page. We hope you enjoy this survey.
