Latin America Regional Conference – Every two years, VBM holds a conference in each major overseas region (e.g. Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America). This past week was the Latin America Regional Conference held in Barranquilla, Colombia. The purposes of the regional conferences are encouragement and ongoing training for missionaries on the field. We had a wonderful time with 28 missionaries in attendance as well as 3 interns. It was a very encouraging time. Please pray for all those who serve the Lord in Latin America, and consider going as a missionary to Latin America. For those who are interested, find out more on the Vision for Latin America website or at the “Unfinished Conference” on May 13, 2023.
Cross-Cultural Servanthood Module – This week, all the students in the Our Generation Training Center were in a module class with Missionary to South Africa, Mark Coffey. Mark has been serving in South Africa for many years. We’re grateful that he took the time to share experiences and advice in cross-cultural ministry.
New Interns in Bolivia – One of our intern couples made it to Bolivia after completing their fundraising. Please pray for them as they begin this phase of missionary training. If you’re interested in doing a missions internship, go here to find out more.
Pray for the country of Colombia and all of Latin America. There is still much work to be done in that part of the world.
Pray for a couple that visited the VBM campus this week and is considering coming for missionary training.
Pray for God to give wisdom as VBM seeks to hire an additional staff member to help with the work of the home office.
Pray for the work that is being done on the Carey Center building. The first big remodeling phase is about finished and will provide more offices, classrooms, a kitchen, a lobby, and a nursery. The Lord has been providing. We only lack $15,000 to complete this phase.
