In Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, a city notorious for violent crime and drug cartels, Pastor Poncho Murguia and his congregation Cruz de Gracia are a vivid example of what happens when Christians take the kingdom of God to where the gates of hell are. He was instrumental in bringing transformation to the infamous El CERESO Prison and the prison system. He has been a key figure in envisioning the new, multi-million dollar Children’s Museum to bring hope and a vision of excellence to Juárez’ youth. His faith and ever-increasing hope for his beleaguered city have made him one of Ciudad Juárez’ and Mexico’s most respected civic leaders.
