The first ever Global Opportunities tentmaking seminar in Mexico City was beyond expectations. The excitement and focus of the students made it a joy to be a teacher. So thankful for all the kindness and hospitality.
Thank you to the course hosts for a job well done in preparation, arranging housing, meals and your positive energy from early mornings til very late at night.
Here are some comments from the students
“During a weekend, Phil Sandahl and Ari Rocklin, representatives of Global Opportunities trained over 50 new Tentmakers in Mexico City to encourage a new generation of missionaries to confront the field from a professional perspective; that is, that these young professionals can become sowers of the Word to reach and disciple new souls from their workplaces, as did Paul, who preached while he worked making tents.”
“This new generation of missionaries also received comments useful to face the new beginning they would encounter when leaving their nations. They met thanks to the experience Sandahl, Rockin and other Tentmakers active, the main challenges you may face a new entrepreneur, from spiritual oppression to fight against materialism and the fights within your team.”
“In the words of Ari Rocklin, “there is always joy!” Because along this journey, you will be visiting and living in a foreign country, learning about the culture, making new friends, enjoying customs and festivals, meeting new foods and of course, preach.”
“Tentmakers is thus presented for the first time in Latin America, to train young people willing to reach the nations with a vivid and effective gospel. A vision that breaks with the traditional paradigms of the missionary spirit and the professional development of participants but the biggest priority is to fulfill the Great Commission.”
“The question that hung in the air for these workers is where are you willing to go to exploit your talents and gifts for Him and for Him?”
