The Latino Coalition for Israel has launched its Latin American Jerusalem Task Force. The Task Force is comprised of Christian and Jewish faith business and governmental Leaders in Latin America and the United States and its mission is to encourage, influence and educate leaders of Latin American Countries on their decision to declare Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and their decision to moving their Embassies to Jerusalem. Working with Latin American governmental leaders, church leadership, and prophetic voices in Latin American countries, our Task Force will seek to secure decisions in nations to follow the example of the United States in declaring Jerusalem the Capital of Israel and in moving their embassy to Jerusalem.
The Latino Coalition for Israel coordinated a delegation of 23 Leaders representing millions of Evangelicals to visit the President of Guatemala, Jimmy Morales, to personally express our gratitude and support for his decision to move Guatemala’s Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. They joined a broader Delegation of 70 Christian and Jewish Leaders for the Mission of Solidarity and Gratitude to Guatemala. The delegation included faith leaders Mario Bramnick, President of LCI, Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Center, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Pastor Ramiro Pena, Senior Pastor, Christ the King, Dr. Jim Garlow, Senior Pastor of Skyline Church and Lourdes Aguirre, LCI Director, as well as Malcolm Hoenlein, Vice Chairman of Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations and Betty Ehrenberg Executive Director of World Jewish Congress were amongst those who met with the President. José Garces, Founder of Armonicemos and Gloria Garces, Media, & Outreach Director of Fuente Latina coordinated the dinner and meetings and were instrumental in mobilizing the Evangelical Leaders in Guatemala to support the Embassy move to Jerusalem.
Mario Bramnick, President of LCI, traveled to Honduras and met with President Juan Orlando Hernandez, to thank the President for his support on the UN vote condemning President Trump’s decision and to discuss the movement of the Honduras Embassy to Jerusalem.
