History: Pastor Ric Lehman moved to Puerto Vallarta with his wife Joy, and son Tucker in August, 2005. They spent their first two years in Puerto Vallarta getting to know the people, city and culture while working among the poor and disenfranchised in the outer colonias (neighborhoods) of Puerto Vallarta. During this time they partnered with the Southside Rotary Club to establish English teaching programs near the city dump in Colonia Magisterio and at a drug rehabilitation facility in Colonia Mojoneras.
