Laura Leticia Vega Gomez, Supervisor of Ranch Operations

Teo and Lety both grew up at Rancho 3M. Lety came as a child and Teo as a teenager. After hearing the good news of Jesus Christ, they both eventually put their faith in Him. Years later, they came on staff and fell in love. They married in 2001.  They live and serve at the ranch with their four children: Abigail, Pamela, Ian and Joy.  Their first born son, Jair, passed away in 2008, at age five, after a long battle with cancer.  The couple graduated from the Universidad Pedagogica Nacional in 2010 and 2011 with degrees in education.
