What We Do
While every SAMS missionary goes to the mission field prepared to share the Gospel within a contextualized method, there are many issues which SAMS missionaries have been called to address within their host countries.
We all have a lot to be grateful for at this time of Thanksgiving. I am especially grateful to be spending it with family for the first time in six years.
But don Leonardo has a lot more reasons to be grateful. His friends and neighbors and a team from the US pitched in to radically improve his life. The improvement has been physical and spiritual. He is a man of strong faith in God who has had his faith renewed. We are all praising and thanking God. Read more about Don in my November newsletter.
This past month has been full of surprises! In the second week of October, I had the opportunity to go up into the Andes with a volunteer team to work at an all boys orphanage near the city of Huaraz. During this time, many lives were touched through the work we did. We had a medical team, a dental team, a personal hygiene team, and a bathroom refurbishment team. I was privileged to be a part of the latter, and the contrast from the condition before we came was very evident. I have attached a picture of the finished product!
