About Us

Mark and Kristin Coté and their three children, Caleb, Jacob, and Rachel come from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They first connected to at-risk children in Peru through the loss of their daughter, Victoria Grace, who lived for six days after her birth in 2008. That year they began Victoria’s Little Lambs Fund to help children in Peru with basic medicines and medical care. Transformed through God’s victory by His grace and compelled by Mark’s doctoral studies on how families turn from brokenness to blessing others in the mission of God, the Coté family moved to Peru in 2014. They served as full-time missionaries of discipleship and development until June 2019 in the Amazon Jungle city of Pucallpa. Mark now serves as Regional Director of Latin America at the Kids Alive International Office in Valparaiso, IN. KAI’s Latin American countries include Peru, Haiti, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic.
