YWAM Mazatlan Team in Cofradia

We had the privilege of hosting the YWAM Mazatlan "Fuego De Verano" (Summer Fire) Team last week.  They were an answer to prayer and an inspiration for many people here.

Like other teams, they did work projects in the morning and ministered in the afternoon.  Saturday, they spent some time with the youth at youth group and shared some testimonies, dramas, dances, and a Word.  At the end, many students came forward for prayer and it was evident that the Lord was touching their lives!  What a way to start the week!
Prayer with the Students
Their ministry continued into the Sunday Service as they shared more testimonies and a drama.  On Monday, they started a three-day Kid's Club (something we have been praying for a team to do for a few years now).  They were able to touch many of the children's lives as they played with them, shared with them, sang with them, and prayed with them.
Worship with the Church on Sunday
Ministering to the Children
Thursday and Friday afternoons were spent up in the Indigenous Communities of Mojocuautla and Agua Aceda where they ministered in an open air meeting for all ages.  Both afternoons closed with a time of prayer for those who came out.

The work projects we had them involved in were finishing up the final pour of the Cofradia High School floor…

Cleaning the Church Property of Arrayanes in preparation for the upcoming event EL RETO that we have each year.  They did a lot of cutting brush with machetes, pruning and cutting trees, cleaning the soccer court, filling ditches, connecting water, cleaning the inside of the building, and more…
One of the jobs was to fix the roof of the Sunday School palapa
The final project was to have them redo one of the sidewalks at the base that a couple of old trees' roots ruined a while back…

In the end, we really had a great time with them and enjoyed the connection of relationships made.  What a blessing!
