"It was a very special time," said Gildelia Moromisato, communication facilitator for OM Brazil. The participants were able to share things and hear from friends about what God has done in Latin America and through them.
"It is amazing to see how much God has done in this region," said Gildelia. "New ministries, challenges and opportunities have arisen each year. Latin America today is an area for mobilisation of a growing church that has great potential to send and support missionaries, whilst also receiving missionaries to work especially in poor areas and developing communities."
Besides mobilisation, recruitment and sending missionaries, Latin America has expanded and developed ministries in the areas of sports, health, social justice and development.
"We thank God for the support of OM International especially regarding empowerment of Latinos to do their ministry and for all those who directly or indirectly have contributed to this expansion," said Gildelia. OM International Coordinator Peter Maiden was present in the meeting, motivating and encouraging the group through devotional times.
On the last day the leaders and communicators celebrated and took the opportunity to thank Richard Phillips, who spent several years managing the finances for OM in Latin America.
"I believe that we all finished this meeting with more encouragement, challenges and hope for the future than we came with," said Gildelia. "May the Lord continue to use Latin America to bless the nations."
