Mike and Erin have concluded their time in the Dominican Republic attending the Latin American Missions Conference put on by Mission To the World. The event was attended by MTW’s missionaries throughout Latin America.
Erin participated in a panel of female missionaries talking about women’s issues on the mission field. Erin helped throughout the panel, but was asked to share specifically about raising a child in a violent culture. She shared with the group how God’s sovereignty must remain the focus of raising your child. She talked about how we covet safety and security and shouldn’t place those false idols ahead of God’s glory.
Erin was also asked to present our ministry in Honduras to the entire group. She told all the missionaries what God is doing in Honduras and showed a video presentation. The entire group then prayed for our mission team.
Mike helped guide a group of nine missionaries in 90 minutes of prayer for each other.
Mike and Erin shared meals with each Mission Team Leader and the their spouse from the Latin American region. We shared time with the missionaries in charge of Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica. During these meals we all shared our mutual concerns and talked about how we could work together to expand God’s global mission together.
Sorry for the lack of pictures. We are having technical difficulties. Mike has been able to post pictures on our Twitter account if you’d like to see some.
