Jovenes Return!

After 5 months of no youth group activities we re-started the grupo de jovenes!

Getting started
Some people may recall that after leading a youth group for several years I combined our group with a new group being led by Samuel & Katy Montero they started at our church "Heme Aquí Señor" in Feb. 2012.
For reasons outside my control, the group ended last December hoping to begin again in January, but never did. Then in April the Montero's met with Sandi and I to see if we could re-start the group again outside of the church.

Playing spoons
 So we agreed to meet in our homes and begin meeting again, with Samuel & Katy leading.
We had our first "new" meeting April 28th at our house to explain to the youth our plans and agree on times etc.
Due to commitments, our next meeting would be May 19 when we would start with new lessons etc.
That was last Sunday and we had a great start! After a short opening and a time of worship we broke into smaller groups, one for older girls, one for younger girls and one for guys.

Small group lesson and discussion
 We began a great lesson book called 'Diez Pasos de Discipulado' or
Ten Steps of Discipleship.
We are looking forward to watching our youth grow and mature spiritually through these lessons.
Please keep us and our youth in your prayers to seek Him and strive to be more and more Christ like in all that we do.
I LOVE our kids!
