The El Caujaro Church of the Nazarene in San Francisco, Venezuela, completed an outreach project to plant a church-type mission in the Caminos de Jesús neighborhood.
The project was part of the South America Region’s Living the Great Commission initiative. Church members first received training in evangelism through the Disciples in Ministry program before serving the local children by providing spiritual and physical nutrition to them and their families.
Despite the fact that many problems and challenges arose, the volunteers were determined to finish the project. Thanks to the support of these volunteers, the El Caujaro church, and the international supporters, land was acquired where a temporary chapel was built to begin the church-type mission in Caminos de Jesús.
Approximately 70 children and 30 adults attended the opening service 26 October. Everyone gave thanks to God for the work that had been done in the area, and many people committed their lives to the Lord, including Samuel, a 5-year-old boy, who said that he will be the future pastor of the church.
“We are convinced that very soon the Church of the Nazarene in Caminos de Jesús will be organized,” said Carlos Cordero, Venezuela holistic ministries coordinator. “We believe this is one of the ways we are living the Great Commission.”
