Mending the Soul Training in Baja California

In November, Mary Cervantes and I had the opportunity to travel to Tecate, Baja California to train the MAEM (Ministering to teh Abused and Exploited in Mexico) leaders in the second part of Mending the Soul.  This is part of the continuing education process that equips Christian facilitators to become advocates in their churches and communities.  The leaders who attended the training are part of a newly formed District of the Covenant Church of Mexico and have been participating in family counseling training with CHET.  Many are already working in family ministry within their churches and communities.

Besides helping the leaders find healing in their own lives and relationships, Mending the Soul helps expand our understanding of how to address issues of abuse from a Biblical perspective and bring healing to survivors of abuse.

One highlight for me was reconnecting with my friend Claudia from Mexicali. We worked with her and her husband Abraham 13 years ago. Now their church is part of the Mexican Covenant Church. We hadn't seen each other in 10 years.

I had a blast staying with the Cervantes family. Mary’s brother Cornelio and his family are planting a Covenant Church in Tecate.

 

I enjoyed the famous Tecate tacos with Monica, the leader of the women’s group at the Family Foundation in Monterrey who also participated in the training.
