Mexico's national identity is reflected by the heritage of its native peoples. It was the first country that OM’s founder George Verwer visited in 1957.Read More
Every year, OM Mexico offers a short missionary training in Bahia de Kino, a small port near Hermosillo, Sonora.
“When I was a student in this training, it was an adventure from the beginning,” shared Sareth. “Through daily lessons, God showed me more and more what it is to be a missionary. We got lots of information about what is happening in the world today. I realised that wanting to serve is not enough. I have to share the same compassion that Jesus Christ has for the world. I have to hurt the same way that He does.”
Every day was a challenge to “be a better version of myself”, she said. “To let grow God in me. The most challenging, I think, is the journey of faith—a little trip where we literally lived by faith for 24 hours in a place called Ejido. God really showed us His loyalty, and taught each student to trust in Jehovah Jireh.”
During the training, Sareth changed in many aspects and went home with a renewed mind set for Christ.
This year began in the same way for Sareth, but instead of taking the training, she participated as a staff member.
“It was a major challenge,” she shared. “I learnt exactly what it is to be a leader in action. As Christ did with His disciples, I served the students.”
“It was great to be able to witness the transformation that God gives in the lives of the students. Now they are bright lights, spreading the word of hope without any fear! Many people already have experienced the love of God through young people who attended the missionary training.”
