CAMPO (Centro de Adiestramiento Misionero en Pokomchilandia) helps participants acquire the cross-cultural adaptation and language learning skills necessary to effectively carry out their work or ministry call in Latin America. Classroom time is interspersed with engaging local people and completing assignments in the local market. Participants live with local families in town as well as spending time living in a village setting. Each member of our staff is bicultural and bilingual.
“CAMPO was a life-changing and equipping time for our family of 6. God knew we needed training right in the heart of Latin culture. We were able to have classroom learning in the morning and spend the afternoon practicing and experiencing what we learned. Our children learned to embrace the Pokomchi lifestyle and truly enjoyed their daily adventures while we were in class. Our facilitators were knowledgeable and gave generously from their wealth of experiences and wisdom. San Cristobal Verapaz was not only an incredibly beautiful town, but its people were warm and inviting as well. We cannot recommend CAMPO highly enough to anyone considering cross-cultural missions in a Latin culture.”
