studio del creador

28 Nov

Three years ago Natalie got up in front of the church and shared her heart.
She was moving to Mexico to work at the orphanage.
At that time we didn’t know that God had a much bigger plan for her.
But, she did.

She is now the the founder of Studio del Creador.
An art studio free of charge to the youth of Tecate, Mexico.

Natalie says that God is a Creator
He created all of us in his image.
So, we each have some sort of creativity inside us.
She uses the art studio to draw out that creativity and point it toward the one true God.

When you first enter the studio she has a gallery that show cases youth artwork.
Imagine the sense of belonging and pride that gives the youth.

Natalie explained that there are a lot of gangs in the area.
Get this…she holds graffiti competitions inside the studio.
Members of different gangs come and compete against one another.
She explained that normally they would just write the name of their gang in a cool way.
However, she gives them a specific topic to help direct them.
I can only imagine the awesome things they come up with.
Instead of fighting in the streets they are in a studio completely devoted to the Lord producing art.

How great is our God!

These boys were totally rockin out on the drum set.
They have only been playing the drums for about four months and only at the studio.
What a gift God has given them!
Right now Natalie is praying for a worship leader who can direct that gift to glorify the Lord.

These boys had smiles on their faces the entire time.

Natalie has such a sweet heart for the Lord.
When he speaks to her she listens and obeys.
I can only imagine the joy this studio brings to him!

If you are looking for a ministry to get behind…
this is the real deal!
