Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God – Proverbs 14:31
El Refugio is a special ministry of EFG that focuses on helping out the poor and underprivileged of our society. There are 100s of homeless people living around the streets all around Guadalajara. They live in extremely difficult and dangerous surroundings. Some people don’t even have access to basic amenities while some have a hard time working around their health issues.
El Refugio, translated to “THE REFUGE” attempts to go out and lend a hand to such people. One Sunday every month, EFG gets together and goes out as a team to share food, clothes, basic kits and especially the gospel to these homeless. These people are then invited to join us for worship (we provide Spanish Translation).
God has been faithful and helped EFG be an influence in quite a few lives among the homeless around the Bridge Club. From dramatic changes in lives, to opening up hearts for the gospel, God’s grace has made it possible for EFG as a community to bring more people to christ.
