MEET MARCOS LEDEZMA, HIS WIFE ANAHI & DAUGHTER ANA
BOLIVIAN MISSIONER IS TRAINED IN SINGAPORE!
The world is changing.
A Bolivian, Marcos Ledezma, gets trained in Singapore, an Asian country, with a view to mobilize the Bolivian Church toward mission be it within or outside of Bolivia.
Marcos graduated yesterday with a Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Studies at Bethany International University after a year of study.
Marcos represents a new breed of missioners from the Global South. He, hungry to do God's will in missions, is connected to American based partners. Third world missioners face tremendous challenges in terms of finances and training. Hence the need for dynamic partnerships which bring the gospel to the unreached. Praise The Lord!!
I came to know of Marcos through a friend, Frank Teo (who also graduated with a Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies). I went to Bethany and met up with him a few months ago. It was great to meet up with a Bolivian and speak Spanish in Singapore!
We hope to meet up with them on our return to Bolivia.
They leave for Santa Cruz, Bolivia on Tuesday at 11pm
