The Camino History Collection

Camino Global has a rich history of 125 years of journeying with Spanish speakers. This four-part historical documentary traces that history, beginning with the prayer of two women in Costa Rica, and the vision of a pastor in Dallas. The mission’s legacy includes thousands of lives won for Christ over more then a century of eternal impact.

Camino History Part I: The Mission is Founded - Discover the story of Dr. C.I. Scofield and his burden for Central America that led to the founding of the Central American Mission.

Camino History Part II: The Vision Expands - William and Minnie McConnel arrived in Costa Rica in 1891. By the turn of the twentieth century, the work of the Central American Mission had expanded to include Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua.

Camino History Part III: Journeying Together - Founded in 1890, the Central American Mission was known as CAM International for 37 years, from 1975 to 2012. CAM became Camino Global in 2012. Today the scope of outreach is truly global. Camino Global exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ, serving among and with Spanish speakers globally.

Helen and David Ekstrom: A Lifetime of Service - David and Helen Ekstrom embody the Camino Global legacy, serving as field missionaries in Guatemala for more than 60 years.
