Active Missionaries

Wil Bailey

Wil Bailey is a North Carolina Conference Missionary.  He received his Master of Divinity degree from Duke University Divinity School in May of 2003 and has been commissioned as a United Methodist Volunteers in Mission Individual Volunteer.  His wife, Yolanda, is an active, life-long member of the Evangelical Methodist Church of Costa Rica. Wil spent the Summer of 2002 back in Costa Rica living with a pastor and his family in San Isidro.  It was over the course of those three-and-a-half months that God showed Wil that there was a ministry for him in Costa Rica.  The week before he left to come back to the States to finish seminary, Wil met with Bishop Fernando Palomo in San Jose, and the Bishop invited him to come to work full-time as a part of the Evangelical Methodist Church of Costa Rica.
