Other exciting stories will show how Salvationists keep their visionary muscles strong.
You’ll read powerful reflections and testimonies from the “Fuego: a catalyst experience for young adults” event.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (Hebrews 12:1–2).
