Do All the Good You Can

by Abi Santana | Mar 2024 | Heartbeat, HB Europe, HB Spain

Around 22 children and teenagers receive weekly educational support at the Mosaico Learning Center, a missional extension of the church in Madrid, Spain. It brings God’s life-changing love in words and deeds, serving the local community, especially the vulnerable and forgotten ethnic groups. The center is a place of peace, grace and love. Children and young people receive educational support but also hope. They begin to understand they have value and have been created for more. At the same time, we connect with parents and wider family members. We love being the hands and feet of Jesus in this community.

Let me tell you about Mateo, a 6-year-old boy struggling with reading skills. Because of his challenges with reading and the fact he is from a different ethnic background, his mother was worried his peers would ostracize him and he would not fulfill the requirements to continue on to the next grade. The team at Mosaico welcomed and embraced Mateo. By helping him with his reading skills, they brought hope and a future. Mateo not only remarkably improved his reading skills but also passed to the second grade. The Ministry of Mosaico has impacted his life and his family’s life. Mateo continues attending Mosaico, and we pray his confidence will grow.

Stories like this inspire us to believe the gospel of Jesus not only transforms the heart and soul of a person but also brings a holistic change to every human being, giving hope and a future. Every person matters.

Our partnership with the Set Free Movement network in Europe also allows us to defend the vulnerable. We provide awareness and education on prevention, making young people and families aware of new technologies used by those who disregard human life to accomplish evil purposes. We exist to know and to make known the life changing love of God. John Wesley said:

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”

Wesley’s statement echoes the teachings of the New Testament and the example of the first disciples. This moves us to do what we do, and it is the foundation of Mosaico.
