We have had the privilege of serving the Lord in camping ministry since 2007 in the south of Chile, having joined the GMSA in 2002. Our main task is three fold. First, we work on camp facility development with the help of national churches or with foreign work teams. Second, we have developed the camp’s philosophy of ministry, tweaking a North American philosophy to better fit the Chilean culture. Third, we have invested in people whether it be our summer camp staff or interns heading to serve the Lord in future pastoral or camp ministry. Those three tasks are then fleshed out during retreats, summer camps, and conferences.
We also have the privilege to serve in our local church in Lican Ray. Danny pastors the church and Liz teaches ladies and Sunday school. The Lord has allowed us to minister in leadership training in other country churches as well as teach in the Bible Institute.
