February 2nd through 4th three of our Field Coordinators conducted a ministry retreat in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. Paco Damian (Mexico), David Ibarra (Argentina) and Eduardo Buldain (Argentina) assembled a group of pastors, their wives and other ministry leaders for a time of ministry training, vision casting and fellowship. The retreat was hosted by Pastor Gonzalo Gonzalez of IBM Rosarito. There were churches from Mexicali, Tijuana, Rosarito, Ensenada, Camalu and San Quintin at the retreat. There were group times, table talks and breakouts for the men and women.
The retreat has served to strengthen the network in this region, brought training to the pastors there and launched plans for a youth retreat this summer involving the churches in this area as well as some from the United States!
