Hundreds attend family health conference in Mexico


Mexico's Oaxaca District held a conference to strengthen the spiritual and emotional health of their families from 1 to 3 June titled Building Healthy Families. The speakers were Miguel and Irene Garita, who serve in the Family Care Ministry of the Mesoamerica Region. The event was held in three different cities, one for each day of the event.

In Huanacastal, about 170 people from nearly 80 families, gathered for the morning session. More families joined in the afternoon, nearly doubling the number of attendees. Throughout the day, around 50 families came to the altar to seek emotional and spiritual healing.

The second day of the conference was held in Salina Cruz. About 150 people from 70 families attended, and seven of the couples gave their lives to Christ while several others recommitted their relationships to each other and to the Lord.

The conference was held in Chahuites for the final day. Throughout the day, about 350 people from 150 families attended, nine churches from the area participated, and more than 55 families went to the altar to seek spiritual healing.

“In our district, we want to be men and women filled with the Holy Spirit who impact the world with their lifestyle,” said Aner R. Castro, Oaxaca district superintendent. “We give thanks to the Lord for each and every one of His blessings. We also thank Dr. Miguel and Irene Garita for bringing a necessary word. And of course for our regional leader Dr. Carlos Saenz, for helping the Garitas be able to come to this district.”
