Like many Latin American countries, Colombia has lots of history, culture…and great food! You and the rest of the mission team will be working with our local Adventist partners in the North Colombian Union Conference. You’ll be in an urban area, in the center of town where the poverty is not at its greatest, but many of church members who attend the church there, themselves, live in poorer neighborhoods. The construction project you will work on is in the historic center of town, making it an exciting location. The local pastor says, “The impact that our church will have in that sector will be very good for the community and this construction will leave the Seventh-day Adventist Church very visible in Facatativá. We long for it to be a great source of light and we hope it can also be become a center of influence for the service of the community in this city.” You will be working in a church that is thriving with lots of kids—they’re the strength of the church! And although church growth is slow because there is such a strong Catholic presence in Colombia, local church members have not given up. A prison ministry led by Adventist church members has already reached 35 prisoners! With your help, the local Adventist church in Facatativá will catch the spark of excitement for evangelism and become the beacon that they long to be in their city. Come join us for a mission that you’ll never forget!
