From October 19 to 24, 2017, the Mesoamerica Global Mission regional coordinators, Scott and Emily Armstrong, gathered together with the field coordinators of this ministry: Maria Eugenia Rodriguez (Mexico), Marc Versil (Haiti), Luz Jimenez (Northcentral), Dario Richards (Caribbean), Freya Galindo (Central); and the NYI regional coordinator, Milton Gay, to have meetings and attend the “Movement Day” conference in New York City, USA. Claudia Cruz (Mexico), participated in some meetings through videoconference, from Oaxaca.
During these meetings, there was a great focus on how to continue discovering, developing and deploying more missionaries in the Mesoamerica region, emphasizing the Genesis initiative and urban mission. Also, during the Movement Day sessions, they engaged in various presentations and discussions about leadership, urban issues and their connection with the power of the Gospel in the city.
The challenges to keep mobilizing missionaries are great, but our God is greater. On the final day, the team went up to the roof of the New York School of Urban Ministry, where they were gathered, and they prayed for the cities. It was a powerful moment for each coordinator, and Marc Versil expressed this desire to change the world well: “As God invested His heart in me, I want to invest my heart in others.”
