Download our May prayer letter for recaps focused on our recent ministry trip to Spain.  For ten days in March, we saw everything from first century Roman ruins to a 13th century monastery to 21st century urban development. We also spent a great deal of time connecting with more than a dozen Camino missionaries serving in a variety of roles across the Iberian Peninsula.

Urbana 2012  changed lives. Hundreds, even thousands, of university students from across North America responded to “the Great Invitation”, a challenge to live a missional life.  I had the privilege of taking a team of 9 Camino missionaries and staff to exhibit at Urbana.  During the 5-day event, God gave us the privilege of connecting meaningfully with 365 students that are interested in exploring opportunities for short, mid or long-term service with Camino Global.

Urbana is a mega missions conference that takes place every three years in St. Louis during the last week of the year.  Sandwiched between Christmas and New Years’ Day, with a closing ceremony that goes past midnight on New Years’ Eve, Urbana always falls during our wedding anniversary (December 30th).  In 23 years of marriage, I have only missed our anniversary two times, and both of them were because I was at Urbana.  The Urbana conference has been challenging students toward mission service since 1948.

It was fun to learn today that all the work we did with Radiant on the new Camino website resulted in an award for design.  Read about it here.

Approximately 22 months after formally beginning the process to rebrand CAM International (122 years old this year), Camino Global launched this past Monday, May 21st.

Approximately 50 people attended the Camino launch party in “The Gathering Place”, also known as the mission home living room at our Dallas home office.  We spent a season of prayer expressing gratitude for CAM’s legacy and God’s work through the mission for more than a century, as well as a time of prayer focused on seeking God’s direction for the future of the mission under a new name.

Current and former staff and missionaries, including two former presidents of CAM International, joined in the celebration. Click on image for larger version.

While CAM officially became Camino on Monday, there are still about two more months to go for the final phases of launch to be complete.  Emails addresses for missionaries and staff will change next weekend, and our new website will launch on July 18 during Convocation 2012.

Camino Global’s identity is beginning to take shape.  The name was adopted in September, and work has been going on since then to create a new look and feel for the organization.  Some of the basic things like letterhead, envelopes and business cards were done in February, and will soon be printed.  The creation of a new website is also underway.

And Camino Global now has a logo:
