Christian Sarmiento, who has served as director of the Church of the Nazarene Mexico/Central America (MAC) Region since 1999, has been appointed the new South America Regional Director. After being led to the Lord in 1974 by his future wife, Sarmiento soon began missionary service in Bolivia, where he served as director of the Nazarene Seminary in La Paz. He held many other posts before his MAC position. Sarmiento will continue to serve as MAC director while a replacement is found. In the meantime, he is planning his move to Buenos Aires, the base of the South America Regional operation. (Nazarene Communications Network)
