A group of Seventh-day Adventists in Mexico City rallied together recently in streets, parks and hospitals to bring joy and offer hope.
“Our city is in need of the healing love of Jesus Christ,” said Joel Omaña, youth leader at the Narvarte Adventist Church and organizer of the event.
“Today nearly 10,000 people were impacted with the message of love in Mexico City by an army of young people filled with the Holy Spirit,” said Omaña of the Oct. 10 event.
The group of nearly 200 from the Narvarte, Coyoacán, and Central Adventist Churches in the city divided into 17 groups. Each group moved through the different stations to make cards, and paper origami toys for sick children in two nearby hospitals. Family members waiting to see their ill children outside the general hospital were also prayed for and fed in another station.
Dozens headed to the Chapultepec national park where kiosks awaited for onlookers. They were taught about the eight natural remedies under the church’s “I Want To Live Healthy” initiative.
