Rafael and Anna became involved with G.O.D. International through SLAM in 2000 and 2002 respectively. It wasn't until they enrolled in the Institute for G.O.D. International that they met and were married in 2006. Today, as Members of the Latin America Regional Team, the Reyes family has helped to facilitate international SLAM experiences for young people from across the United States, where their fluency in Spanish has enabled them to work as translators.
They have a daughter, Sarieli, and a son, Yair.
