As many of you might have seen, Facebook was plastered yesterday with Extreme announcements. It was our Launch Day, revealing the plan for the next few years, what our focus will be and even a couple slick new videos.
The 5 second summary of XSA (Extreme South America), taken verbatim from its website, is this:
Extreme South America is mobilizing 80 pairs of 40/40™ missionaries and hundreds of workers supporting 40/40™ to plant 16 vibrant churches of 100s of people in 16 major metropolitan cities of South America.

Mike and I are excited and humbled to be a part of such a huge movement and mission. Do you know that God hasn’t given up on this world yet? We have the tendency to see all the wars, natural disasters, immorality and corruption and think that the end is so near that we can’t possibly make much more of a difference. Well, I’m here to tell you that God is still working like you wouldn’t believe! Watch this short video:
We have been so blessed by the opportunity to work for Extreme for almost 4 years now and can’t really imagine anything different. When we try, nothing else even makes sense.
As I mentioned before, Mike is stepping into a big role. As Operations Officer, he will be managing all the day-to-day flows and systems and relationships. Over the last few years, his gifts in this area have just shone. He’s going to rock this position (in my unbiased opinion) – but, as you’ve heard, we have to move to make it work.
Extreme’s headquarters are moving from Arequipa, Peru to Quito, Ecuador. Mike and I are headed there in January to set up the main office in order for the rest of the team to begin trickling in starting in March. I had the opportunity to go to Quito in May and will tell you all about it soon! And share fun pictures, too. 🙂
If you felt a little nudge to find out more about the following, just follow the links and let the Lord lead:
And isn’t the new website fantastic? Props to our IT team that has been working major overtime the last several weeks making sure all was perfect for the launch.
Come, let us all make disciples.
