SAVED BY SOCCER
The U-13 and U-15 categories are travelling to Mazatlan to play against the teams there. Forsome kids it will be their first time seeing the ocean so it will be a wonderful experience.
¨Saved by Soccer¨ Ministry
We have just now re-started in Mid-February the weekly program of going to the hospitals, praying for the people inside the hospitals, the families of the sick in the waiting rooms, and taking hot burritos for the ones in waiting rooms. Because of Covid, we weren´t allowed to even be close to the hospital by the hospital security, so the program was closed since March last year. We are happy to say we have now been at it again for 4 weeks.
We have two new boys in the Rehab Center of 12 and 13 years of age. The number of kids and teenager having addiction problems is growing but our team in Torreon is equipping them for life after their annexation time.
EXTENSIVE LEADERSHIP TRAINNING
This past month we have started in Saltillo, discipling and mentoring Pastors and church leaders from city and rural churches equipping them to be faithful to God´s word and the Gospel in their ministry to others.
CR PROGRAM- CELEBRATE RECOVERY
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind. The program has had 4 generations of graduates, being the last one on February, with 22 graduates of the program, now starting with our fifth one in the factory and the sixth one at church.
We have had 43 children, youth and adults baptized. This last Sunday A man who 25 years ago came to us with drug addiction problems and who got baptized in our church 24 years ago, brought his daughter to be baptized. It is amazing to see how God works generationally and the impact God has in people´s lives when the seed is planted.
