In 1996 at a small, secluded student retreat in West Alabama, God birthed a great vision. The speaker at this event was approached by a young girl who told of how she had just asked Jesus into her heart and that she was excited about reentering a very unstable home-life with this Good News. Upon leaving, the Holy Spirit spoke this simple message into the heart of the speaker: "I want to do this again, but bigger." En Fuego was born.This young man immediately contacted one of his closest ministry friends and the same vision was ignited in him. Soon, a team of ministers and lay-people had assembled to make this dream happen. In the fall of 1997, En Fuego was realized.
