Imagine being part of a team that trains ministry leaders from 8 different Latin American countries in just one setting?
Raising up leaders from within their own countries is part of the work that we get to participate in.
Those ministry leaders oversee other leaders, and with their new knowledge, they are able to do the basic work of evangelism in the power of the Holy Spirit in their countries.
Part of our joy in ministry is coming along side others who are doing the work of evangelism in Latin America.
One such ministry is Vida Joven (Young Life).
The joy of giving ourselves away in training
We’ve been with them for many years, watching them grow into the leaders they have become and being part of the development of this ministry.
After each trip, we feel that our work impacts the future of Vida Joven.
They know that Jesus calls them to a greater work: advancing the Kingdom of God and that they are called to invite people to start following Jesus.
They are learning about marriage, forgiving others, and growing into God’s dream. They are shaping the generation that will change the country. We know that communities will be changed.
What excites us most is that we know that these leaders “Get it.”
They will take this teaching, and apply it in their Vida Joven clubs with great enthusiasm. We can’t wait to go again.
We need your help to get join a team to Central America to continue training Vida Joven leaders.
Young Life is doing awesome transforming work in Latin America, and we get to come along side them to help them reach the 150 million teenagers in Latin America: helping caring adults build relationships with kids, helping them to find Christ.
While it’s always to good to share about
- the content we taught,
- how many hours we taught,
- The number of students in our classes
- the number of countries that sent young adult leaders, and
- the ongoing effectiveness of our work,
there is an indescribable impact that Young Life Leadership Keeps telling us:
The ministry of presence.
Our team has made a repeated investment in training these leaders over many years since PRMI started going in 2002 to come along side Vida Joven.
