Freddy Méndez, Coordinator of the ’Negocios para El Reino’ or ‘Businesses for the Kingdom’ Program at the Nehemiah Center, and Mr. John Stam, American theologian and author and Latin American Missions missionary, have exchanged ideas about their ministries for a number of years. Freddy, along with seven members of the Nehemiah Center team, attended the Fifth Latin American
Congress in Costa Rica. While there, they exchanged more ministry information with Stam, LAM president Mr. Steve Johnson, LAM representative for Latin America, Mr. Luis Diego Herrera.
The Nehemiah Center and Latin American Mission (LAM) are now embarking on a three year partnership agreement that will enhance the work of both parties. LAM will have a formal partner in Nicaragua, be able to expand its geographic area, and increase its ability to impact this area through the Nehemiah Center’s network of churches and leaders and its knowledge of the Nicaraguan context. There is a hope that this affiliation with encourage LAM missionaries to serve in Nicaragua.
The affiliation with LAM will enhance the achievement of the objectives of the Nehemiah Center. The Ezra team will be instrumental in training key volunteers and including them in already existing programs. Cross-cultural learning experiences and resources will be available to LAM, and the organizations will work together to develop new proposals and resources.
Through this new collaboration the work of the Nehemiah Center will be promoted in other areas of the United States, Canada, Europe and elsewhere where LAM is located.
