I am a teacher, lay evangelist, vice president of AMARE (affiliated to Mothers’ Union, a pastoral advisor and a member of the Diocesan Council of Northern Argentina.

My role is to support leaders and members of the Diocese of Northern Argentina to ensure the continuation of evangelism and to seek brother- and sisterhood links with members of other dioceses of the Anglican communion for investing back into the territory.

I seek to be one of the bridges between young people and adults, to take into account their vision as children of God, to be one of the representatives of indigenous peoples to other dioceses, and to accompany children and women pastorally.

Mirna’s story

I am from the Wichí indigenous culture with Argentinian nationality. I grew up in a family of faith in God. Since I was a child I was instilled in obedience to the word of God, my family taught me to apply the evangelical teachings and they warned me to be careful with intercultural relationships.

However, in the state school I learned to generate relationships with others from other cultures. I have always liked socialising with others, so I decided to travel to other places to share about our reality and to learn from others, working with young people and women from the community from the evangelical church.

From a very young age when I finished my high school studies, I worked teaching my Wichí language and culture in secondary school. I also worked for the Education and Culture Ministry helping teachers in bilingual and intercultural education [Spanish and Wichí]. At the same time, I was always with older women who encouraged others in the local churches.

Being part of CMS means, for me, being part of the Lord’s workers to announce salvation, also using the gifts that God has given me and growing in faith together with others, and above all obeying Jesus’ command “go into the world; and preach the gospel to every creature”.
