Id a Las Naciones

This week a missions conference was held in our sister church in Torreon. It was called "Id a las Naciones" (Go to the Nations) and was directed by  Mitch Arbelaez and Jim Oxindine. Stephen, Marcela and Elisa all participated as translators throughout the week, and a large group of young people from TCL attended. There were lessons and group discussions about different aspects of missions work, and we're excited to see how God will lead us to use the knowledge that was shared. Pictures!

El Calor Update

This week Stephen and Marcela traveled to Mexico City to register the players of El Calor for the new season, which starts the weekend of August 23. Thankfully all the paperwork was accepted, and all 25 players and staff were registered successfully. We had planned to have a 3rd Division team in addition to the 2nd Division team but the soccer federation's rules changed this year and we weren't granted permission. There are several boys staying with us right now who were going to play on the 3rd Division team, so please pray that we will be able to find them spots with other teams, and that while they are here God will touch their lives. Please also be in prayer for the 2nd Division team as they prepare for the upcoming season.
