International Ministries

Pray for Kim Kushner

July 28, 2009 PrayerCall

Kim was recently commissioned to serve in both regional and local ministry projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. Based in El Salvador, she will offer her experience and passion for community development and equipping local leaders as she partners with local grassroots leadership and development projects initiated by the Baptist Federation of El Salvador (FEBES).

She writes: So… finally, I have the GREAT SATISFACTION of giving the answer we’ve all been waiting for. After months of preparing, fundraising, and what seemed like a lot of “hurry-up and wait,” the moment has finally arrived to head to El Salvador. (Kim left for El Salvador on July 30.) THANK YOU to each of you who have encouraged me and walked with me as I have prepared for this new ministry. Special thanks to each of you who have become financial supporters as well as encouragers.
As I reflect on the past months I am especially grateful for lots of time to be with family and friends. The trouble with this international living business is that you never quite know when the next visit will be.

I will arrive in San Salvador just in time to attend the Reunión de Pastoras where women pastors from Central America and the Caribbean will join together. After the conference I’ll head to Zacatecoluca where I’ll spend the month of August acclimating, visiting a variety projects in the area, and at the end of the month will meet up with a team from Oregon City that has a long standing partnership with a church in Zacatecoluca.
