The place to be
A place to be (field trip)
Without realizing it, the Christian congregations of Latin America have been tying up thousands of young people for decades, who could become some of the best propellants of the Christian movement at the continental level, if they were guided in the right way.
Just as David’s obedience served so that his generations would be blessed and from them the Messiah would be born, so God gives to every ministerial house an inheritance, which as the ages advance should not be divided or diminished, but on the contrary, multiplied.
Psalms 45: 16-17 “Instead of thy fathers shall thy sons be, whom thou shalt make princes in all the earth. I will make the memory of your name perpetual in all generations, for which the peoples shall praise you forever and ever.”
“And when thy days are fulfilled to go to thy fathers, I will raise up seed after thee, one from among thy sons, and will establish his kingdom. He shall build me an house, and I will establish his throne forever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son; and I will not take away my mercy from him, as I took it from him that was before thee; but I will establish him in my house and in my kingdom for ever, and his throne shall be established for ever.” I Chronicles 17:11-14

Despite travel restrictions linked to the health crisis, the Saint-Martin Tourist Office has maintained its “Saint-Martin is the place to be” operation in Martinique to boost regional assistance as soon as health constraints are resolved. A first edition of this promotional operation, carried out with RCI Martinique and presented on the airwaves by the indispensable Charly, took place from July 9 to 11 in partnership with the Grand-Case Beach Club and Air Antilles.
In the presence of the regional representative of the Office of Tourism, Patrick Deffit, who came from Martinique for the occasion, more than 20 2-minute interviews were conducted in Saint-Martin and broadcast live on RCI Martinique to promote the strengths of our destination and offer promotional rates for the benefit of listeners. Accommodation, catering, activities … A dozen tourism stakeholders have benefited from this highlight.
With 200,000 listeners, RCI is the leading radio station in Martinique and has a very important strike force for such a promotional operation. Other editions of “Saint-Martin is the place to be” will be programmed.

IPSUM is a Chilean startup that developed a SaaS for scheduling and planning construction projects based on lean construction and BIM. Its clientele is focused on Latin America and it is currently working to enter the US and Canadian market. Check out Franco’s interview to learn about the startup and their journey in this competition:
Lean is a methodology that focuses on waste reduction. How we can do the same thing with less resources or not waste resources at all. How we can build a step-by-step methodology, so that we don’t lose track of time or leave an activity unattended, not knowing if we need materials, machinery, documents, any R5. It’s about looking into the future, understanding what’s coming and being able to release all the constraints and potential dangers it has and build a reliable plan.
The Competition allowed us to be part of the ecosystem, to be known and get some visibility. After that, it introduced us to CB Insights as one of the top 100 Construction Tech Startups. It also helped to understand what was going on in different countries, and the experience of meeting other founders of different ages, backgrounds, cultures. It was very exciting.

The following month, Singapore imposed a strict 2-month closure called a “circuit breaker”.Since the end of the confinement in June, life in Singapore has gradually returned to apparent normalcy.In June and July, Singapore began allowing limited-seating stores, hotels, cinemas and places of worship to reopen. In November, shipping lines began offering “cruises to nowhere” for Singapore residents, which start and end in Singapore with no intermediate stops.People walking at lunchtime in Singapore’s financial district on February 16, 2021.ROSLAN RAHMAN/AFP via Getty Images
