The Results Help Hundreds of New Christians


Over 300 people of all ages attended the free event at 1:00 p.m. where they enjoyed food, drinks, games, music, preaching, and much more for over two hours.


“By combining GMO’s technology and our connections to pastors on the ground, hundreds of people in Mexico who were once alone and online looking for answers, now know other, local Christians they can turn to for prayer, sharing and support,” states Matt Whitlock, Director of The Tribe, a ministry of YWAM international. “The celebration was a huge success, and we are making plans for more, Christian events like this worldwide.”
