Dec 5th San Antonio, TX Spanish Why Israel Event
On Wednesday, December 5, 2018, our CUFI National Hispanic Outreach Coordinator, Rev. Peter De Jesus, conducted a Spanish Why Israel event in San Antonio, Texas. This event was held at Iglesia De Dios Rios De Agua Viva and was hosted by Pastor Eliu Burgueno, who went to Israel with CUFI earlier this year. As a result of the impact our Israel Trip had on him, Pastor Burgueno dedicated one of their Wednesday midweek services to the well-being of Israel so his congregation could receive the vision, mission, and pro-Israel biblical mandate of CUFI. Consequently, many of his congregants became CUFI members and also gave offerings to the work of our CUFI On Campus efforts. Additionally, Pastor Burgueno’s brother, Administrative Bishop Dr. Fidencio Burgueno of the Church of God South Central Hispanic Region which oversee over 200 churches, accepted our invitation for him to go to Israel with us next year. We believe the impact of this event and the upcoming 2019 Israel trip will result in many more CUFI events throughout the region Bishop Burgueno oversees.
