About Latin American Missions Association

Latin American Mission Association (L.A.M.A. Ministry)

Latin American Mission Association was founded in 2009. Inspired, and we believe, called by God to reach out and help those in need.  Our mission is to bring HOPE, LOVE, and SUPPORT to Latin Americans here in the United States and around the World in the name of Jesus.

The vision is BIG for our little ministry, but our GOD is BIG!  Our job is simply to be available and obedient to His will and direction.
