To share the Message of Love and Hope
Changing lives through missions, evangelism, teaching, discipling, training, pastoral care,
and financial aid.
In April 2006, Yajaira Gomez went on a seven-week internship to the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa. Yajaira's gift for sharing the Gospel Message of Hope was discovered as her hosting community worship centre placed Yajaira to speak empowering messages over 50 times in 49 days to the surrounding villages, towns, churches, schools, and hospitals of Eastern Congo. It is in Central Africa where Illuminating His Word to the Nations (IHWN) was birthed. IHWN has been a Canadian Registered Charity since 2009 that operates under Canada's Not For Profit Corporations Act.

Dr. Yajaira Gomez
Rev. Dr. Yajaira Gomez serves as Founder and President for IHWN. As an itinerant minister, she often travels to communities for short periods doing the work of an evangelist, missionary, Bible school planter, teacher and pastor. She ministers in Spanish, English and French. She also leads a podcast.
One of Yajaira's core values is being a life-long learner. Her studies include a B.A. and M.DIV. (McMaster, Hamilton), and a Doctor of Ministry (Tyndale, Toronto). In 2015, she published her thesis, "Developing Best Practices for Itinerant Ministry ... in a Cross-Cultural Context". Currently, Dr. Gomez is working on a condensed version to be published in various languages. Her hope is that it will be a learning tool for others.
Yajaira has travelled to 14 countries speaking in a wide range of events for all ages. If you would like to book Dr. Gomez for an event please contact us. She also offers Prayer for the Sick, help with Weddings, Funerals and Renewal of Marriage Vows. Feel free to give her a call or email email@example.com.
