Getting to Know Us


Buenos dias, amigos!

My name is Donald Kamese. My beautiful wife, Becky, and I are the founders of Vida Impact Missions, and we are glad you are here! You may be wondering, “What is Vida Impact, anyway?”

Well, let’s find out!

Vida Impact is a nonprofit mission located in central Mexico in an area known as the Circle of Silence. Becky and I are permanent residents at the mission, working on the front lines to bring the Gospel to the unreached.

The Circle of Silence is made up of 115 counties with less than 1% of evangelical Christians, located mainly in seven Mexican states of Jalisco, Michiocan. Guanajuato, Aguas Calientes, San Luis potosi, Zacatecas, and Queretaro. It is thus named due to the ‘silence’ of the Gospel in the area.

It is our goal to finally break the silence and bring the life-giving truth of the Gospel to those ears that would hear! We live to love for God by obeying His command to make disciples of all nations.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  Matthew 28:29-30

Therefore, we plant churches. But not just churches that will grow in number. We want to create disciples that will in turn create other disciples and plant churches that will in turn plant other churches! Every single outreach program of our ministry, whether mobilizing churches, sports programs, sponsorship, family conferences, training native workers, vocational assistance, sending missionaries, or mentoring leaders, is firmly founded in Biblical teaching.

Our dedicated team exists to proclaim the Gospel through church planting, mobilization, missionary training and the sending of workers to the least reached regions of the Circle of Silence. Our Vision is to see at least one missionary church established in each of the 115 regions in the Circle of Silence. We plan to accomplish this goal by equipping native missionaries while at the same time training them to become missionaries throughout the world.

Central Mexico is rife with idolatry, drugs, and witchcraft. We work tirelessly in the trenches to free the people from their bondage to these idols and bring them into a loving relationship with the one, true God. We use many channels to accomplish this lofty feat. We spend a lot of time on our knees praying for the people of Mexico and seeking God’s guidance in our walk. Though the task is daunting, our God is big. He is able! We have already seen some amazing testimonies come from the work Vida Impact is doing, and we cannot wait to share those incredible stories with you!

We also run a missionary school alongside a church planting organization in Mexico called “Buenas Nuevas” with the dedication to “mobilize, Train, Equip and Send” workers to the 115 districts of the Circle of Silence and to the world. We offer language classes, job training, Bible study, and more. We hope to continue to expand the school to reach as many lives as we possibly can. The relationships we build with the people are key to our success.

Our team puts a primary focus on making disciples. Spreading the Good News is the ultimate goal of each and every thing we do, be it English classes, feeding children, or just playing soccer. These are beautiful opportunities to form relationships within the communities we serve by loving and caring, and hence opening the door for discussions about Jesus.

But here’s the thing. We need you!

How can you help?

Pray. Everyone can pray.

Give. Most can give.

Go. Some can go.

Standing on the front lines for Christ is difficult, though rewarding, work. We implore you to join by praying that the word of God will take root in the lives of every man, woman, and child we disciple for an eternal impact.

Brethren, pray for us.” 1 Thessalonians 5:25

Please also pray for the safety of our team as they face dangerous circumstances in the name of the Gospel. Pray for their children, their provision, and their courage as they shine light into the darkness.

The Vida Team is made up of donors and sponsors just like you who provide the prayer, encouragement, and support necessary to provide missionary training, children’s outreach, education, sports outreaches, and most importantly the Gospel to the people of central Mexico. They are in desperate need of Jesus. Together we can spread the Good News to the unreached. Click here to give!
