Mar 1 – Houston, TX – Bilingual Why Israel?
On Sunday, March 1st, our CUFI National Hispanic Outreach Coordinator, Rev. Peter De Jesús, and his wife, Rev. Mildred De Jesús, conducted a bilingual Why Israel event in Houston, Texas. This event was hosted by Pastor Joaquin Alfaro, of El Tabernaculo Church, who went on our Latino Pastors Israel Tour last November. As a result of the great impact our Israel Tour had on him, he hosted this event for his local congregation during their annual Missions Convention. At least 140 people attended this event, and many of them joined their Pastor in becoming CUFI members and giving a unified congregational offering towards our CUFI On Campus efforts. Additionally, during and after the event, some of the attendees responded with interest in attending our Washington DC Summit this year and having some of their full-time college and university students apply for our DC Summit Scholarships. Thus, this event was quite successful!
