FESJA (Adventist Youth Federation) Texico, is a retreat that takes place twice a year that aims to enrich the spiritual lives of Hispanic teens and young adults throughout the Texico Conference. After 13 years of hosting events, the FESJA leadership is excited about its future. A new planning committee was recently elected to serve for the next two years and they are excited to see that those who are now part of the committee were actually participants of the very first FESJA events. Supporters of FESJA include parents, professionals, and youth leaders in their local churches. One of FESJA’s goals, is to see young people evolve into spiritual leaders. FESJA is very thankful for the opportunity to serve in this ministry that reaches the younger generations and prepares them for future spiritual leader roles and most importantly for the kingdom of God. We ask you to pray for the FESJA leaders and for all the youth who attend the biyearly retreats.
