Why does the Colombia Community need us?
Making a Difference
The Community of Santa Cecilia, Colombia has a population of more than 10,000 people and approximately 6,000 are between the ages of 0-15. They face many of the following issues:
Lack of work
Low economic resources
Malnutrition & learning disabilities
Unwanted pregnancies, abortions and abuse
Lack of Spiritual knowledge, and Life principles
When you step into a foreign mission field, like Colombia, you will sense God's amazing compassion for another culture and you will begin to know his love for the nations. You will encounter His manifest presence as His love touches your heart and that love extends to your neighbor. You become the hands and feet of Jesus to people in desperate need.
ONE HEART ONE MISSION
For many lives it is a constant struggle, even today. And our aim is to give their struggle HOPE.
The people of Santa Cecilia, Colombia have been blessed with the natural beauty of the view over the Mountains as their home for many generations.
Unfortunately, many families in Colombia have lost hope for a successful future. They only see the results of poverty, broken families, and loss of jobs. Hope is generated by building the coliseum and sharing God's word and our love with our family in Christ.
On the 2020 Mission Trip the Bakery room and Sewing room where tiled. During the Sunday service and evening services (Mon-Thur) the word was shared on Emotional Healing.
