Cuero, Victoria youth make a difference

Goliad – On Saturday, Jan. 16, 125 people poured out their hearts on the South Texas Children’s Home Ministries Marshall Ranch Campus. First Baptist Churches of Cuero and Victoria combined their Disciple Now weekend, resulting in 93 youth joined in purpose to make a difference.
 
This campus provides homes for families. Mothers, along with their children, find a refuge during a time of crisis. As they learn to rely on God to heal, they also are given instruction, encouragement, and friendship to help restore what is broken and move forward to a successful and independent future. Most importantly they learn how to meet the needs of their children and build a relationship with Christ.
 
The pouring rain and chilly wind did not stop this dedicated group as they broke off into groups.
