Honorable Recognition

The President of Chapla and Mayor of San Nicolas, Ana Luisa Raygoza, held a ceremony on June 29th to recognize people who are making a difference in the community.  Juan Ibarra and the YouthReach staff received an award for their positive influence in the lives of kids and for their community involvement.  The Mayor spoke about the dedication of YouthReach to support kids with their educational needs as well as providing an outlet for them with sports includes boxing that helps to teach them discipline.  YouthReach also helps to keep kids away from drugs and violence and provides them with a positive environment.  The Mayor spoke highly of Juan Ibarra and the respect he has earned in returning to his hometown to serve the community with his hard work and dedication.  We are honored to receive this award and are grateful to be recognized for the work that we do in helping to make a difference in the lives of kids.  I want to thank Ana Luisa Raygoza for her support.  Thank you to those who continue to pray for us and support us financially.                 Gratefully, Juan Ibarra

Honorable Recognition

First Baptist Mission Team

During June 12-18, the FBC Mission team came to Mexico to serve with YouthReach.  The mission trip was a success and they quickly acclimated to Mexico.  The group project began with the painting of the upstairs balcony, two classrooms, all of the bathrooms, as well as the downstairs meeting area.  They help put together arts and crafts and helped with the afterschool program for the kids.  They spent time helping out with the sports program with field sports and boxing.   The team worked patiently even with the language barrier with those whom they were serving.  We held a family feast with over 200 kids and their families from the town.  The testimonies from the missionaries were powerful as they shared how God's grace and love impacted their lives and why they came to serve on missions.  Many were touched especially because of the turmoil currently happening between our two countries that helped them to see God's love crosses all borders.  We truly appreciate our partnership with FBC Lodi and are grateful for the sending of the mission team.  We look forward to many more mission team visits from our church partnerships.
