One of the goals of OMI is to partner with and support other missionaries in their efforts to share the Gospel with children in other countries. One of the ways we accomplish this goal is by funding a portion of a missionary’s travel cost, using the profits that we generate from our 2014 Amazon’s #1 Best Seller: Valores Cristianos (Christian Values).
Over the summer, OMI supported three missionaries who took Christian Values Coloring Books into Cuba, Honduras, Haiti, and Colombia. You can see in the photos below evidence of their successful work.
Mission Trip to Cuba
Missionary Iris Bonet, took Christian Values into Cuba and gave them to Pastor Everardo of Nazaret Baptist Church, located in Cienfuegos (“Hundred fires”) Cuba. Iris reports that it’s called “hundred fires” because it is extremely hot there.
Mission Trip to Honduras
Missionary Emanuel Azan took Christian Values into Honduras and gave them to school kids. You can learn more about his missions by visiting koimissions.com
Mission Trip to Haiti
Pastor Saul Alcineus Jr. (who translated Christian Values into Haitian Creole) took the books into Haiti and gave them to the the kids at Eglise Evangelice Semence Benie, located in Montrouis, Haiti.
Missionary from Colombia
Missionary Ale Cuello will be the first to use our English curriculum “Yo Puedo! Speak English Now!” in the public schools in Varsovia, Colombia. She will also distribute Christian Values books into other parts of Colombia. She still needs 45 more workbooks by September 15, 2015.
Mission Jax Fl.
Pastor Rafielle Usher will be finishing up his work with Englewood Bapt. Church in Jacksonville Florida the Fall of 2015. During his 3 years at Englewood, the church was taken through Foundations for Success Evangelism Workbook, and the church experienced a documented 100% growth from the date he started, most of which came from new converts.
OMI Evangelist Rev. Lian Hlun spent the summer traveling to London, Norway, and Germany to preach the Gospel to Burmese refugee communities scattered around Europe.
OMI Pastor Tom Constantini, recently joined OMI International. He is pastoring a small congregation located in Melle, France. We hope to have short term missions teams ready to assist him in 2018. If this is something that interests you, please feel free to contact us!
OMI Missionary Joffre Swait and family spent the summer traveling across America on a fundraising tour. They are going into Brazil this year to start a sport missions ministry in which they will reach thousands of youth with Gospel via sports. [Update: The Swaits resigned from OMI to work directly with their local church.]
OMI Pastor Todd Seay, continues to be steadfast in his revitalization efforts in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. He will be slowly transitioning into a more full time role in OMI to help revitalize other churches in America and around the world.
