Welcome from Latin American!
In spite of all the problems and challenges that we are facing, it is posible that Christ’s church in Latin America (20 countries extending from Chile to Mexico) is experiencing one of the most exciting moments in our history! Besides numeric growth, there is greater awareness of the need to be involved, in words and deeds, with the world around us. As a result, the impact that Latins from different Christian traditions are causing in our society is ever more visible, and the name of our Lord is being glorified.
At the same time, as the body of Christ, we still need to grow much in understanding what it means “to bear witness to Jesus Christ and all his teaching – in every nation, in every sphere of society, and in the realm of ideas” (The Cape Town Commitment) and I am certain that the Lausanne Movement could be greatly used by God in this way.
For this reason it is a great joy for me to share through these pages a little of what God is doing around the world through the Lausanne Movement, as well as to make available materials and information related to our participation, as committed Christians, in God’s great project to bless all the peoples of the earth.
Join us in this great challenge!!
