The Youth Network Team of the Church of God recently traveled to Eagle Pass, Texas, and crossed the border to Piedras Negras, Mexico, for a time of training, planning, and outreach. This effort was part of the Spread the Word (STW) initiative. Since 2002, Church of God students and their leaders have given more than $775,000 through STW for tools for evangelism. One of the primary reasons for this trip was to see STW funds in action and to hand off the Five Principle Training system.
Seven team members participated in this venture, along with two students and one youth ministry intern. The team started their journey by teaching the Five Principle curriculum to a group of leaders at a church in Eagle Pass. They then traveled on to Piedras Negras, Mexico, where they participated in a youth rally. About two hundred teens attended! Some of the musical instruments, equipment, and a projector used in the rally had been donated by STW.
