EL RETO 2014 Invites YOU!

EL RETO 2014 is inviting you to participate!!

We want to invite you to be part of our 10th annual youth outreach called “EL RETO.”  It is the biggest event of the year in Cofradia.  We are reaching out to new students who have never been exposed to the Word of God, reaching out also to those who have yet to make a decision, and we are all learning excellent life principles through the activities and meetings.  Last year, over 180 students attended.  This year, we expect many more as more churches are showing interest in being involved.

In order to make this burden-free for the students, we need your help. This event is always very expensive for us to carry out.  We are asking for donations of any size and I have broken down the needs as follows:
$100 will help with the Team Captain Retreat – In house Leadership training and preparation.
$100 will help with the promotion material – posters and banner.
$300 will help with the Staff and Captain’s t-shirts.
$500 will help with all props and prizes – we have free food and drinks available for the students since we get out late (after 8pm).  Many come from other towns or cities (up to 1 hour away) and get home very late.  We have a Fear Factor Banquet, Auction (involving food), and outings.
$900 will help with all transportation costs – we travel from town to town, take students home, and have mid-week preparation costs.

Please consider how much you can give, it will change a student’s life!

Just recently in a house group at another town, a young lady named Claudia said she was ready to accept Jesus Christ as her savior.  Our initial contact with her was through EL RETO...FIVE YEARS AGO!  We continue to do this event, because it continues to have an impact on the students who get involved.

Send a check made out to Alternative Missions to Alternative Missions / PO Box 3107 / Ferndale, WA 98248.  On a separate note, indicate that it is for COFRADIA RETO.
