First Love staff are also involved in preaching, evangelism, and leadership training.

Barrio 17
First Love has been working in a neighborhood called Barrio 17 on Saturday mornings. God has been bringing more and more kids to come to hear a Bible lesson, play games, and eat a snack. God has been faithful, and we are praying for volunteers to help us in the work as it is already growing a lot.
