Guatemala Short Term Missions 瓜地馬拉短宣
For the last two years, the OCM Guatemala short-term missions team has gone down to partner with Hope Bible Mission/AGAPE to bring the Gospel and Biblical teaching to the rural areas of Guatemala. In January 2019, OCM went to assist HOPE Bible Mission/AGAPE in building a ministry center in the town of Chel. While on this trip, the team noticed the lack of Christian programs and education for children, so that became the focus of the 2020 trip.

Kathy’s Home is a boarding house started by Mak and Narola Sanglir that OCM has partnered with for 13(?) years.

Brazil Short Term Missions 巴西短宣
The objectives of the Brazil mission trip are mainly two. First, we were involved with theological and ministerial trainings. The leaders of the local church were the target group. We taught topics, such as biblical leadership, team building, discipleship, church growth, etc. Besides that, we also led various workshops, including worship, apologetics, and ethics. Our target groups were lay leaders and lay people in the church. Second, we focused on evangelism and visitation. We reached out to non-believers during the trip. We went to where they work, got to know them, invited them to join church activities, and share the gospel with them.
Panama Short Term Missions 中宣會巴拿馬短宣
Praise God! In response to the call of the Lord's great mission, the Panama short mission team began to participate in the ministry of evangelism in Central and South America since 2018. When most of them are retired brothers and sisters who are still healthy and motivated by God to do more work "in the day". From 2018 to 2019 (suspended by the global epidemic in 2020), we traveled to different regions of Panama, Columbia, and Costa Rica, arranged by the local Pastor Wu Bineng of the Chinese Christian Church of Bajingtang. Under the leadership of church staff, we spread the gospel to the local Chinese, especially the first generation of Chinese, from house to house, shop by shop.
During the short mission, we realized the difficulties of local Chinese making a living, working long hours every day, coupled with the danger of public security, they really need to know the Lord Jesus. Gospel work requires personal visits and time to follow up. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of preachers and evangelists. With God’s mercy, we can establish a gospel partnership with the local church and open up a new mission field. The church can continue to have short-term mission teams every year. I believe we can lead more people to believe in the Lord.
Participating in short-term missions is a good learning opportunity. Through planned reading and prayer for the team members, they can better cultivate their spiritual life. In the process of preparation and short-term missions, you can learn how to cooperate well with each other, and encourage each other, be united, humble, and obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit. At the same time we learn how to preach the gospel to others, do personal evangelism, and share the testimony of life. Participating in a short-term mission team can experience the joy of working with God, broaden the vision of God's kingdom, see the needs of the field, and know the urgency of evangelism, so as to better equip yourself and use it for the Lord.

Family Short Term Missions to Appalachian Mountains – Lincoln County, West Virginia
The region of Appalachia is home to many people of Scottish and German descent, who settled there in the 1800s. Once famous for logging and coal mining, the region was hit with poverty in the mid-1900s and has persisted in poverty to this day. Poverty in the region is so severe that the people of Appalachia are likened to those living in developing countries.
This trip is special because it is a FAMILY mission trip! Together, parents and children can serve and share the gospel as one team. The OCM’s Family Missions team partnered with YouthWorks to meet the community’s practical needs (yard work, painting, cleaning, etc.), as well as their spiritual needs through VBS program.
