What is a regional consultant? After 13 years of teaching, mentoring and walking alongside men and women in Mexicali, Mercy is now responding to these same concerns in the wider Latin American context. Mercy will also be part of a team that will come alongside the ministry of Cuban Baptists.

“I am responding to this new call with excitement,” says Mercy. “I am being stretched as I discover the diverse needs of our Latin American partners. This is also an exciting time of change in Cuba, and in that spirit I ask for your continued support of this ministry.”
