The Lord brought Melissa to Camino Global, formally known as Central America Missions International, back in 2010. She served as a single missionary, in fact the first Camino Global missionary to partner with nationals in beginning a new mission field in the country of Colombia. Once they were married, Juan and Melissa returned to partner with Camino Global and they were accepted as missionary appointees to Colombia with Camino in June of 2016. Camino Global as of July 1, 2019 has merged with Avant Ministries. Both agencies have similar historical backgrounds, both having been founded by C.I Scofield in the late 1800s. One of the greatest blessings that comes from merging Camino Global with Avant is the opportunity to expand and serve on more missionary fields. Now doors are open to reach more people for Christ with missionary fields from both organizations in Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe.
