Michael and Leslie met in college and have been married for over 10 years. During that time, they have been serving in their local church in the Raleigh, NC area
where Michael was the worship pastor and missions director. He loves using music to lead people into worship, and Leslie has a heart for helping children understand the love of Christ.
The Cesmat's have always had a passion for missions and specifically seeing disciples of Jesus become disciple makers. In 2020 God called them to "go"
and serve the people of Guatemala. Almost instantly, after saying “yes” to God, their hearts filled with a love for a people and culture they knew nothing about. Since then, they have sold
everything and moved to Guatemala where they have been learning language and acclimating to their new home.
The Cesmat's were sent by Generation Church in Clayton, NC. They have two beautiful children, Rhett (4) and Aria (2). To support or contact their family, please use
