Dear Friends, 
God is at work in Latin America. 
And he's using you and us - together - to change the lives and hearts of so many people who are looking for hope. 
Your support and prayers helped Ernesto and Marina Pinto minister to pastors and their families in the Dominican Republic last month. These pastors and their spouses are on the frontlines...working in communities marked by poverty, violence and family breakdown.  
These retreats are a healing experience for many of them,  encouraging them to keep working in hard situations that are also hard on their families.

Exciting news: We're going LIVE!

Our spanish television program 180 GRADOS is moving to a live broadcast format to reach more people! Starting this July, 180 GRADOS will be live on Facebook. Each episode will continue to feature testimonies from our audience showing how Jesus Christ changes lives. This new live format will give our viewing audience an opportunity to participate in the program with comments and questions in real time. Ernesto will be able to interact with the audience and discuss important faith issues - all live. These episodes will also be recorded and packaged for delivery to our regular television broadcasters.

In a new series, Marina Pinto encourages women in their daily lives.
Blanca from Honduras describes her life with a husband who suffered from schizophrenia - and how she had to separate from him after 18 years of marriage to save her children and herself. Listen to the program here.

Edulia from Paraguay asked God to help her family forgive two young people who attacked them at night in their own home and nearly killed her husband. It wasn't easy, but with the grace of God the family forgave their attackers and even started a friendship with them. Listen to the program here.
