The seminary prepares students for ministry from all of Central and South America. The current need is for teams to build married student apartments. Our most recent Volunteers in Mission team to serve on this project was led by Joe Bartelsmeyer. Joe shares their experience in this MissionCast and offers an invitation to others to serve.

The Missouri Conference has been invited to return to a favorite Volunteers in Mission site of the past.  Over the next two to three years we will be sending 10 VIM teams to build a married student housing unit for the Latin American Biblical Seminary, in San Jose, Costa Rica.  Audrey Phelps introduces the new project in this MissionCast.  There are four ways to join this project.  You can pray for its success; you can donate to the project ($30,000 is needed for the building supplies); you can join a VIM team (Audrey will lead one of the first ones in August) and you can lead a VIM team.  Audrey and about 300 volunteers from the Missouri Conference have served at the seminary in the past, including a cabinet team, led by Bishop Sherer.  To join this project call or email Audrey at phelps@umocm.com or 573-474-7155.
