ACM Forges Ties with Puerto Rico’s AMIES Internacional
In pursuit of mobilizing and equipping Christians for cross-cultural missions through holistic training, the Asian (World) Center for Missions tied up with Asociación Misionera Interdenominacional El-Shaddai(AMIES)Inc. based in Puerto Rico.
ACM Philippine Director, Rev. Danny Bayasen, ACM International Vice President, Dr. Miguel Alvarez, AMIES President and Founder, Rev. Luz Esther Cadiz, and Rose Navarro, also from AMIES signed the Memorandum of Agreement last June 18, 2019 in ACM’s Makati office.
The agreement between ACM and AMIES intends to strengthen and support each other in the advancement of its missions’ initiatives in the Philippines and Puerto Rico. With a unified goal as stated on both organizations’ vision and mission embodying common ministry roles namely mobilization, missionary training, missionary/member care, and church partnership, ACM and AMIES are excited and humbled to be instrumental in God’s redemptive plan for the nations.
Unified Goal: To Birth New Generation of Cross-Cultural Goers
ACM Director Rev. Danny Bayasen and AMIES President Rev. Luz Esther Cadiz share the same passion of mobilizing and engaging the entire church especially the youth to actively and faithfully participate in the great commission – PRAY, SEND, GO, CARE. They envision to see the new generation to go forth to the nations and do long-term cross-cultural work – all for God’s glory.
Towards No More Unreached
The Lord has been graciously giving ACM opportunities to mentor and equip workers who are and will be working among the least reached people (LRP) groups. This partnership with AMIES is already the second international collaboration of ACM for 2019.
Just two weeks ago, ACM finished the Specialized Missionary Training Program in South Asia. 42 locals from three different countries were trained with 18 more people mobilized through the Kairos Course. Praise God for this pioneering work which has led to two future endeavors: training leaders for church planting and youth mobilization.
As ACM fervently prays to produce 7,000 trained and deployed missionaries by 2030, ACM is amazed to see doors open and expand locally and globally to equip missionaries.
ACM looks forward to seeing God’s power manifested in ministries, people, and LRPs.
To God be all the glory, honor, and praise of all nations! #TowardsNoMoreUnreached
