    Resonate Global Mission partner church plants that you support throughout Canada and the United States are constantly listening and looking for ways God is at work in their communities.

    For as long as Obed could remember, he had faith in Christ—but then the coronavirus pandemic turned his life upside down and he started doubting his faith.

    “He felt he was drowning,” said James Lee, your Resonate Global Mission missionary. “I said, ‘Well, I’m swimming with you.’”

    James met Obed through Compa, a campus ministry that James partners with in Querétaro, Mexico. Obed was in high school at the time, and even though Compa events are primarily geared for university students and young professionals, Obed regularly attended and was warmly welcomed.
