Part of Extreme’s vision is recruiting and planting seeds for future missionaries. We want to empower local South Americans to become missionaries in their home country and then eventually around the world. Extreme Nazarene has four South American “mobilizers” or recruiters who travel around Ecuador as well as other South American countries speaking in churches and attending events to promote this vision.
One of these mobilizers is Nikol and she works out of the Quito office with me. This weekend, I had the opportunity to accompany Nikol at a local camp for the youth of churches in Quito. I grew up going to camp and youth group was a huge part of my life, so I excitedly said yes. Even better yet, my job was to organize the games for the weekend.
It ended up being a much smaller group of young people than we anticipated, but it was still an amazing weekend. We spent much of our time, hearing from different devotional speakers, in prayer, playing games and fending off mosquitoes.
