I had experience with Conviventia as a board member at Genenration One. The group came in and helped us through a two day visioning session. Was sttod out to me id the passion the folks had to make other non-profits as successful as they are. the team was knowledagble and lovin and desird to share their information to make Generation One a more successful oragniazrion. I appreciated the honesty they provided us and we are better today as a reuslt of the parnership we formed with Conviventia. Justin Steele, Board Member at Generation One
Last year I received the extraordinary blessing of being introduced to Missy Christie, Executive Director of CDA-Colombia, and to visit their operations in Bogota and Cartagena. CDA-Columbia’s heartbeat is that passion for the hurting. That passion is exhibited vividly in their work in schools planted in the slums of Bogota and Cartagena. CDA-Columbia’s values of dignity and responsibility permeate the way their work is carried out in Jesus’ name. Through high quality education for children and extensive vocational training for willing adults in the neediest neighborhoods. Lives -- and communities -- are being changed forever. I’ve visited small businesses begun by students of CDA’s vocational training schools. The enthusiasm and energy exhibited by these entrepreneurs reminds me of the joy God gives us when we use the talents He has given us.
If not for CDA… I thought this so often during our trip. If not for CDA, where would these children be? In the slums. Without hope. Inflicting violence upon themselves or others. Continuing the cycle of violence.
Second Mile Mission Center’s Board and staff have also been blessed with opportunities to learn from Missy. It was an added benefit to then see in Colombia those principles of empowerment in action.
I am personally inspired by what God has done and is doing through Missy and her team at CDA-Columbia.

I have Known Mrs. Missy Christie de Acosta for a number of years. We first met at a Bible school in Dallas Texas during the year 1987. At that time, she was only 17. We eventually got to know one another and worked in the same office together on campus. With that said, over the years, her pledge to helping people has never wavered; just the depth to her resolve has increased exponentially. She is both gentle in spirit and a lion at heart. Missy's character and commitment to serving the populace is revealed every day by the love and respect she has for her husband Carlos, her family, as well as for the people she reaches out too. For these reasons, I do not hesitate in granting my endorsement.
With kind regards,
Dr. Bruce Macdonald
