A Breakfast at City Hall

8 Jan

History was made today in our city!

Public servants representing the three levels of government met over breakfast at City Hall with leaders from the professional as well as the religious community. David attended the event accompanied by two friends he had invited–Hector Amador, a former school principal who currently holds a position with the government in the area of Physical Education and Marisela Luna, former first lady of Ensenada, former City Councilwoman and the former Director of Social Development.

Around 40 people attended this fourth Leaders’ Breakfast organized by our friends at Ensenada Outreach Center (EOC) and the first to be held at City Hall. Co-hosted by a City Councilman and his assistant and members of the EOC team, the spirit of the gathering was one of relationships, friendship, unity and mutual support. Padre Miguel, a priest from a local church, read from the book of Deuteronomy and said the blessing for the food. The closing prayer was offered by Pastor Abraham, who serves with EOC as a liaison to the local churches and the Ensenada community.

Lucy Meza, a partner with us in ministry and Administrative Coordinator for EOC, wonderfully shared the vision for future breakfasts reflecting on her experience of attending the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. two years ago.

Those of us who have been praying for years for a Prayer Breakfast for our city, state and country view this gathering today as pivotal and monumental. Please join us in praying for the monthly Leaders’ Breakfasts that are now being held the first Thursday of each month at the EOC facilities. Please pray as well that if this is God’s timing and plan, that out of these relationships and our times together would come the seeds for future gatherings focused on the person of Jesus and on prayer for our communities.
