Grace Center

This week we enjoyed a visit from a group of more than 30 youth and leaders from Grace Center in Nashville. They arrived very early Wednesday morning after a delay at the border, but the rest of the week went smoothly. They worked on several projects around the property, fixing roofs and painting buildings, and also saw some of San Pedro. They ministered at both rehab centers and at the children's breakfast, as well as in our regular church services. On Sunday morning 12 of the youth were baptized, along with two people from Templo Cristiano Libertad.

End of Vacation

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since the last post, but we're up and running again and will continue to update the site once or twice a week. It's summer, and that means lots of groups are coming down to visit. Right now we're waiting for a group from Nashville, who will be helping us finish the breakfast building in Torreon and participating in services and outreaches in and around San Pedro. A quick note: this group got held up at the border because they were unable to obtain the necessary permit to allow them to bring their bus into the country. If you're coming here and planning to drive, make sure you check all the requirements before coming...I will try to find some links for you with the rules and regulations for border crossing.
