More about the project.
Shabbat is a health and education located in Dzidzantún, Mexico. This center is currently under construction and is being built for the purpose of raising up medical missionaries and providing a place for the many who are suffering to receive lifestyle education and natural treatments.
This will be the first health and education center in the Yucatán area of Mexico. How needed is this center? Close to 100 districts out of 140 still need to be reached with Advent message, and from surveying villages in the area 75 to 85% of the illnesses the people have can be prevented and reversed with the proper lifestyle education and natural treatments. Although poverty and sanitation have their impact on the health of the people in Mexico, the lack of proper healthy lifestyle education is what is causing the majority of sickness and suffering. Our hope is to have Shabbat a place where suffering can be relieved and missionaries can be trained to not only preach and teach the gospel, but to put the gospel into practice, the compassion of Christ revealed.
With God's help and yours we hope to build a much needed kitchen for this center this November. We will be hosting a group from November 14-29th.
If the Lord permits and opens doors for you to come and join us please contact us as soon as possible.
