Isaiah 55 Ministries, Reynosa, Mexico
NoNo (Nolton) grew up in Montgomery, Alabama and committed his life to Christ at an early age. Kate grew up in a military family which eventually settled in Montgomery during her high school years. Kate committed her life to Christ in her senior year of high school. After attending Auburn University, Kate and NoNo married. NoNo started his own construction company and Kate worked as a social worker. They have two grown children: a daughter, Sadler and a son, Bibb. They were called to the mission field in 1999.
Kate and Nono served as missionaries to the deaf in Rio Bravo, Mexico for five years. They then began working with Isaiah 55 Ministries in Reynosa, Mexico. Nono is the country director and they have hosted many volunteer teams over the years. They each work closely with schools for the deaf. Their previous work experience has contributed greatly to their current ministries. Nono works with students teaching them vocational skills (welding, construction, etc.) Kate and Nono work closely with the school staff, students and parents by sharing the Gospel, mentoring and discipling. They also offer ESL classes, Vacation Bible School, sports ministry and medical missions.
