In the Inter-American Division, ASI organizations have been active in numerous projects.

ASI Honduras is sponsoring an expansion project at Daniel Christian School, a bi-lingual school for children and youth in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. In Colombia, ASI in the InterAmerican Division is involved with EDEM Medical Missionary Training School. Located in Supia Caldas, Colombia, EDEM promotes evangelistic programs based on health and lifestyle training, with stress management, hydrotherapy, and massage programs.
Organizing jobs for the local community is the goal of the Social Missionary Project, sponsored by ASI Panama. It allows local individuals to earn a living, and the outreach aspect of the project has resulted in a group of roughly 25 individuals meeting for worship each Sabbath. As the project grows, ASI Panama plans to build a church for these worshipers.
