You and your family have an opportunity to remind the people of Colombia, they are seen and extravagantly loved by God by taking part in a mission trip this August.
This trip is for you if:

- You enjoy South American culture, speak Spanish, or would like to learn
- You want to grow in your faith while sharing God's love with others
About Colombia and the ministry:Colombia is located in the northwestern corner of South America with coastal regions along the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It has a diverse geography: from the coastal beaches to the Andes mountains that run through the western interior of the country. Colombia is ethnically diverse; rooted in the rich historical ancestry of the indigenous people groups, Spanish imperial influences, and African culture along the coasts. Spanish is the primary language, however there are approximately 70 languages spoken among the original people groups throughout the country.
Fundacion Comunidad Viva is a Colombian foundation started by Jorge and Ginny Encsio. Jorge & Ginny have a true passion to see communities transformed by the gospel of grace. They empower local churches and Christian neighbors to become true agents of transformation in their communities, by restoring and weaving the social fabric of the community. They strongly believe that visitors relate to hosts in a horizontal—not vertical—way: everybody gives, everybody receives. They have many ministries that you may be a part of during your time with them.
