Sacramento, N. Mex. » For more than 10 years, the Adventist Youth Federation FESJA  has organized youth retreats to encourage Hispanic teens and young adults throughout Texico to grow deeper in their spiritual life. The retreat, which occurs twice a year in different cities throughout New Mexico and West Texas, took place for the second time this year from July 14-16, 2017. 

More than 130 youth gathered at a campground in the Sacramento Mountains of New Mexico to worship and hear guest speaker Pablo Partida preach on the book of Exodus. Partida also spoke about dating, personal growth and the importance of having goals in life. On Friday evening, Partida reminded the youth of God’s power to free them from sin. The night concluded with a special communion service. The weekend was full of inspiring activities and it ended with a 5K run with 30 participants. The FESJA Texico team is already working hard and planning the next FESJA event that is set for February 2018 in El Paso, Texas. Organizers encourage youth directors, pastors and churches to support this special weekend by promoting and assisting the youth to attend.
