After making an acquaintance with Macedonio years ago, it wasn't until last summer that I got to know him better and our friendship started to grow. Macedonio is an excellent sound man and his specialty is video. As we were working together at youth camp last summer, I knew he was really good with video and I asked his opinion on a few things that I was planning on for our huge youth event, EL RETO. What I was talking about interested him so much that he dedicated the next three months to helping the youth ministry here in Cofradía as he spent hours upon hours investing in the lives of the students, planning and making videos (he made 13 quality videos), and encouraging EVERYONE with whom he came in contact. His energy and encouragement attracts youth from everywhere. I'm convinced that part of the reason why we had a record attendance of 108 last year was because of his influence in the lives of the students. In his words, EL RETO was one of the greatest growing experiences he's had and feels a tug to continue ministering in Cofradía. We are excited about Macedonio's decision to come and work on staff with us this August through October. He will be helping once again spending hours and hours working on videos and hanging out with the students. In order to make this possible, he will need the support of people like you who are willing to invest in the lives of students as Macedonio's impact on them is incredible! Macedonio will not receive a salary as he will be considered part of our Missionary Staff; he needs your help. Please email Steve for more information on how you can make this Kingdom Investment and remember to keep him in your prayers.
