Latin American Ministries
The Francis Asbury Society provides funds for travel to Latin America under the direction of Jim Harriman. The team of Spanish-speaking evangelists, including Jim’s brother David Harriman, have spoken in Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, Costa Rica, Paraguay, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, and Colombia. They’ve spoken at evangelistic events, youth rallies, leadership and marriage seminars. Their ministry has been broadcast over radio and television in Costa Rica. Plans are underway for further evangelistic efforts for 2011 in Peru, Dominican Republic, Uganda, and Kenya.
The way Latin American Ministries works is quite simple. FAS is committed to paying for evangelists’ travel to and from a Latin country. The host mission organization, national church, or institution pays for their room and board. LAM also sends teachers/professors. It has worked well and has been a tremendous blessing!
Another crucial aspect of the LAM account is publishing holiness materials in Spanish. Holiness publications are sadly lacking in Latin America.
While LAM originally funded travel to Latin America, ministry opportunities have opened up in other Spanish speaking countries. The countries to which we have already sent evangelists are: Colombia, Venezuela, Suriname, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile, Panama, Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Spanish Guinea, Africa.
The countries we seek to enter are: Nicaragua, Guatemala, Belize, French Guiana, Guyana, and Uruguay. Our goal is to enter every country in Latin American within the next few years.
Consistent donors have kept the LAM account at FAS alive and well. May God bless those who give and those who go! The message of biblical holiness must be proclaimed around the world.
