Loreto, Baja California
We are kicking off the 40 Days of HOPE in Loreto on February 26, 2020. Loreto was the first Spanish settlement on the Baja California Peninsula, and was founded in 1697 by Jesuit missionaries desiring to bring the gospel and glory of GOD to all the world. Loreto is the flash point of the gospel coming to the Californias; the genesis of the way, the truth, and the life coming to this land.
In addition, from this point of inception in 1769 an expedition departed from Loreto establishing the El Camino Real (the King’s Highway). They started the first highway in the Californias and every other road branched off of this one. It is the KING’s Highway!
Loreto also served as the capital and seat of government for the Californias for 80 years. Throughout Israel’s history, GOD would often take HIS people back to what HE had done in the past and remind them of where they came from. We believe the LORD is doing it again with us.
