Does life have to be perfect for God to inspire?
Apparently not in the case of Daniel Ramos Sanchez, age 21. Daniel was serving in his first year as executive pastor in his church in Cusco Peru, when he attended our annual Young Leader’s conference last June. He arrived discouraged about some of the challenges he faced as a new young pastor. Some of the problems at the church seemed overwhelming. According to Daniel, “the word that sums up the Young Leader’s conference for me is ‘inspiration’”. “I received inspiration and vision for my church, and learned how to communicate that vision to my team.”
Daniel was one of 110 young leaders from Peru and Bolivia that attended Latin Equip’s Young Leaders conference in 2016. This June 1-2, 2017, we again expect more than 100 young leaders to come to Lima to be encouraged, trained, and receive inspiration! This time is so needed as Peru is still dealing with the aftermath of a national flooding crisis. With so many needy people in each congregation, we will be training on how to help church members to find life after the flood. One thing Daniel found valuable at the Latin Equip Young Leaders conference was the lifelong friendships and relationships he developed there: “We can build each other up and help one another.”
$100 provides a complete sponsorship including inspiration, travel, hotel, and all expenses for one young leader.
In fact, Daniel would like to attend the 2017 Young Leader’s conference in Lima again this year, and bring some of his team with him. Will you consider sponsoring him or another young leader like him?
