I was born and raised in Santiago, Chile. That’s just one reason why it’s exciting for me to work with Habacuc Diaz, our point person on a Chilean NOMaD team. In fact, I used to go to school at Santiago Christian Academy where Habacuc’s wife, Liz, now teaches. So, let me have the honor of introducing you to our friend.
A supporter of Habacuc’s ministry once gave him an old DSLR camera which piqued his interest in photography. As you’ll see in the short video below, he started taking pictures of skaters to build relationships with these young people. He later learned about GNPI, specifically project NOMaD, from a old college buddy of his, Sergio Alvarado. Sergio leads the NOMaD team in Pachuca, Mexico. The rest is history, which is still in the making.
He’s calling the team “Indigno,” which means “Unworthy,” a name meant to create a dialogue about what Christ did for us. He hopes to create many resources—tools for the entire church community to use in order to have a greater impact in their ministries.
The team in Chile is working on some new projects, including a series called Sabías Que? (Did You Know?), which will educate youth regarding abortion. This will feature interviews with doctors, as well as real testimonies. A teaching series of premarital counseling material and one on biblical principles of finances is also in the works.
Take a few minutes to watch the video and see the world through Habacuc’s eyes!
