On Friday, March 23, 2018, in Los Angeles, California, Iglesia Pentecostal Esmirna led by Pastor William Rodriguez, hosted a Spanish Standing With Israel event conducted by our CUFI National Hispanic Outreach Coordinator, Rev. Peter De Jesus. This was the first of three CUFI events this year to be hosted by Pastor William Rodriguez, who is also the Assistant Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Southern Pacific District, and who recently went to Israel on our first-ever CUFI Hispanic Pastors Israel Trip. Both he and his congregation received and responded very well to our CUFI vision, mission, and pro-Israel biblical mandate as many of them became CUFI members, joined our Daughters For Zion Prayer Network, and gave offerings towards the national work of our CUFI On Campus outreach. Additionally, Pastor William Rodriguez extended an invitation to CUFI to provide a Pastors & Leaders Dinner Briefing at their annual Southern Pacific District Council in Southern California on Thursday, July 19th. We look forward to finalizing this event and other events as we increase our National Hispanic Outreach in California!
