This past weekend, I picked up the local newspaper and found on the front page an article discussing a major problem for Manzanillo. Manzanillo is currently dealing with a major drug problem among local youth. Specifically, the use of crack cocaine has increased significantly.
One of the ministries we have in Manzanillo is assisting two Drug and Alcohol Rehabs. Several church members donate their time to serve, preach and teach in these rehabs. Additionally, each rehab sends a group to church most Sundays and several have participated in Celebrate Recovery classes at the church. Much of what is being taught is being implemented in their traditional AA 12 step programs. Additionally, we are working with the leader of one of the rehabs on implementing a Bible based long term (12 – 18 month) rehab program similar to Teen Challenge.
Your financially support and prayers assist us in providing this much needed ministry in Manzanillo.
