For Rev. Cesar Duran, Piedras Negras is more than just the next location for a CrossTraining Timothy Project. Piedras Negras, Mexico is home. When Rev. Duran, who serves as a CrossTraining Associate Chaplain with the Colorado Rapids, was recently invited to teach on chaplaincy by his hometown bishop, Rev. Duran thought it would be a good opportunity to give a gift to pastors that serve in a very poor part of Mexico.
I was invited by the Bishop Fernando Fuentes to give a teaching about chaplaincy during the Annual Conference and I wanted to give the pastors a shirt of the Colorado Rapids.
Rev. Duran leaves for Piedras Negras June 18 to attend and speak at the United Methodist Church Annual Conference to be held at Nuevo Laredo, Mexico June 22-26, 2016. He will present a Rapids jersey to the pastors in attendance there. Rev. Duran shared the challenge for many of the pastors serving in this part of Mexico,
Most of this pastors are living in precarious situations, doing the ministry in very poor areas, such as Las Malvinas. At Las Malvinas there is a Methodist Church, Principe de Paz, with the Pastor Jonathan Lozano; this area is one of the poorest neighborhoods of Piedras Negras Mexico, a city of the north of Mexico. In this city there are soccer tournaments between the Methodist churches and they could use these shirt for that.
