“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…”
While the mission field can range from those lost within our own backyard to others in the most remote regions of the globe that also need to hear about the Good News of Christ, World Missions Today strives to mobilize all who are willing to personally make an impact anytime, anywhere, as Ambassadors of Christ’s love.

Ruth Romero Valverde
Ruth Romero Valverde is a missionary in the country of Costa Rica. In 2010, she was invited by pastors in Panama to evangelize in the plazas and streets of Panama. There, a need for missions was created in her heart. After a time, she has been seeing to the needs in different places and to different groups, churches and on a personal level with people. Her main focus today is on the children of the Dominican Republic. There is a desire to help these children with tools to help them both spiritually and physically. The enormous need of these children and hunger they have for Christ has inspired her immensely to be able to set up food halls that will serve as places for them to learn about Christ and the tools to help them become leaders in their communities
