WEC stories from around the world

Betel

Since starting up in Spain in 1985, Betel has become a global phenomenon, now established in over 80 cities in 21 countries worldwide. In each Betel residential centre, people struggling with addictions are inducted into a caring Christian community and nurtured back to wholeness. In the words of UK Directors, Kent and Mary Alice Martin, they ‘gradually rebuild their dignity with meaningful relationships and meaningful work.’ Betelitos are encouraged to stay for 12-18 months and many of those who have been healed stay on after that to help in the ministry.
