Transforming lives through Christ by serving in Mexico.
(Better Future) Youth Center
“This center was not built to simply hand out pencils and paper but to open the doors of heaven to young people.” -Director Emmanuel Valenzuela
Mejor Futuro provides a safe environment for young people to learn, grow and play. Many of the young people in the area we serve deal with parental neglect and abuse which is very common in poor communities. The youth center is designed to provide a safe place for kids to learn new things (music, drawing, English, computers, sports, etc.) as well as provide computers, internet and tutoring for kids to progress in their education!
By meeting needs specific to young people, we now have Godly mentors, teachers and coaches in relationship with kids who have not been taught the truth of God, His love and His grand design!
(Bread of Life) Ministry Center
John 6:35 “Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.”
Pan De Vida is a new ministry center, built on the far south end of the barrios where i6eight works. The center was created out of a burden on the heart of one of our key volunteers, Celia. Several months ago Celia approached our leadership team with a burden for families that are passing through Puerto Peñasco, needing a place to rest and receive a warm meal. The center was constructed with this purpose in mind.
Additionally, the center is providing warm meals to children before school as of November 2014. Through meeting the basic need of food, this center will provide a place for the i6eight team to proclaim Good News and build relationships. Additionally, Pan De Vida will require numerous volunteers, allowing people a place to serve in order to build community, dignity and ultimately the Church.
Beginning with a simple expression of love, i6eight provides families with a basic and secure home. The typical family living in the barrios of Mexico is undereducated, unskilled and stuck in a cycle of “poverty thinking.” There is a lack of dignity that accompanies poverty, making it nearly impossible to overcome. Through a continued relationship, we are able to faithfully serve the families of the barrios and bring the good news of Jesus Christ.
Spend a three-day weekend serving with us in Mexico and experience an opportunity to impact a families life and be impacted yourself.
This is an opportunity to be engaged in the mission that God put us on earth to do: to die to ourselves, to live to Christ, and to live a life of love by serving in a radical way.
i6eight provides employment and volunteer opportunities for members of the San Rafael community. These opportunities are the avenue in which i6eight’s ministry leaders train, disciple, inspire, equip and encourage individuals. Leading each person into a life of worship.
Weekly there are many opportunities for formal Bible study, worship and church services. i6eight believes strongly in life on life discipleship. We work hard to create opportunities to “be in” peoples lives daily. “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” God is relational, therefore His children and His plan for redeeming the world are relational.
