While missionaries are needed worldwide, many Latin American churches are beginning to play a role in sending out their own missionaries. LAM’s Ken MacHarg reports: “Latin America is no longer just a mission field, but is taking its rightful place as part of the missionary force. LAM missionaries are training workers and assisting local churches to help them gather the resources for send their own missionaries to places such as Africa and Asia. Many feel that Latin missionaries have much in common with other people in the developing world in that they look similar, have common roots from Arabic influence and share the same enthusiasm for soccer. In addition, Latin missionaries often cost less to support on the field. North American missions such as LAM are sharing information on financial and data base systems with Latin churches, serving as a connection for U.S. and overseas ministry partners. For Mission Network News, I’m Ken MacHarg in Miami.”
