Aurelio Barreto - C28 Founder's Profile Location: Corona, CA
Aurelio F. Barreto III is the founder and CEO of C28 Christian Stores and Not of This World NOTW Christian Clothing. As an immigrant from Cuba, Aurelio knew the value of hard work at a very young age. By the time he was 20 years old he founded his first business and grew it to $3 million in revenues. In 1987 he moved on to invent Dogloo, an igloo shaped dog house that was sold in the mass market. After 10 years of running Dogloo Inc., Aurelio sold the business for millions yet had no inner peace or joy. Depressed and without any purpose, Aurelio had contemplated suicide. Through the grace of God, he heard the gospel and responded to the invitation of salvation. After much prayer, Aurelio was led by God to reach the youth at malls with the gospel through C28 Christian stores.
"...And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" ...Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ." Romans 10:14-17
WRITE ON THIS PERSON'S WALL
Ryan Dear Mr. Barreto,Thank you so much for creating this wonderful store. I cannot tell you what a blessing your store has been for me and my family. Every time I walk into your store, there is always someone offering to help me, whether its for prayer or looking for something, their always ready to help. Your products are a constant reminder of God love for us. Throughout the day, whenever I look down at my NOTW shirt, jacket, etc., Im always reminded that I am loved and to continue to seek the Lord daily. Your products have given us a way to wear our hearts on our sleeves and share the word of Jesus even when we are too afraid or timid to speak it. You have created a positive brand that people can truly live by that also helps local ministries and people in need around the world. Thank you again and God bless your work.In Christ,Ryan

KevinAurelio, thank you so much for creating this website. I havent ordered anything yet, but I have made use of the prayer board. It is so wonderful that I can go to the prayer board and have Christians pray for me and pray for other Christians. My nana had a minor stroke recently but no one knew it yet. My mother called her and she sounded realy out of it. Before we left to investigate, I left a prayer request on the board. Within about 20 minuts, 6 people were praying for a woman they didnt even know. My nana is fine by the way. Thank you again, Aurelio, and God bless you!

I would appreciate your prayers as I speak this Thursday, June 10th at 7:45pm at Valley Baptist Church in Bakersfield, CA. Pray for travel safety, a clear and moving Gospel presentation, prepared hearts of the people.
By Gods grace I have been invited to a speak to the Oakland As baseball team this Friday at a private luncheon. God is amazing at how He opens doors for a sinner like me. Please pray that the gospel will be clear and that the Lord would be glorified. In addition, Im speaking this Saturday at a "Armed Forces Day" concert in Northern California.Please pray for me, all the traveling gets tiring at times. I have asked God to use me and to send me wherever He wants, and so He does!!! Im grateful!!! Additionally, our company is going through a major attack from the enemy, and so we need you prayers. Please also pray that I receive the grace that I need to be bold for Him, and that I preach the gospel each time with a great passion and zeal like it is my very last time :-) I need you guys and I love you guys :-)
Please pray for me as I speak at the Teen National Day of Prayer concert event on Saturday May 1st in the Richmond, VA area. Please pray for good attendance and that God would change the lives of these teens.
Dear Praying Friends,
God answered your prayers!!! By Gods grace I shared the gospel with 300 teenagers and witness 80 people accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Afterwards, I was able to pray with 16 year old Stephanie suffering from depression, John whos father had left him, and Mike who was going away to serve in the military. Real people with real needs. Please know that you are part of our ministry and your prayers are huge!
Original Prayer Request (posted 11 Months Ago): God willing I will be sharing the gospel with 250 kids this Thursday at "Future Quest" in El Cajon. Can you please join me by praying for this event to be anointed by Gods Holy Spirit. That many come to Christ, and everyone is challenged to reach others for Christ. "Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest." John 4:35 Thank you in advance for your prayers :-)
Over 40+ people raised their hands to pray
the sinners prayer. God willing they all filled out the information
cards so the men can follow up quickly, connect them to churches,
and begin to disciple them. Thank you again and to God be all the glory :-)
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Can you please pray for me again, that the Lords grace protects me and the organizers of the following events, and that many come to faith in Jesus! If you know anyone, please invite them to attend. Oh, dont be mislead by the event name "Gathering of Men", woman are welcomed and attend as well! Visit this page for more information: http://www.c28.com/founder.asp
Praise the Lord, that through His Holy Spirit, over 250 kids raised their hands to receive Christ. Please continue to pray for these kids, that through Gods Holy Spirit, the discipling would begin quickly. There was a lot of pain, and yet Christ met their needs through His throne of grace. Be blessed knowing God used you BIG TIME :-)
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): A good brother of mine from a large public high school in Southern California
(cannot disclose the name) invited me to preach the gospel this Friday. You can
join me by praying for the kids, for the teachers, and for me. Please pray that I will
preach the gospel of grace clearly and boldly as I should, and that many would come
to faith in Jesus. I went to a public high school of 4,000 growing up, and not once did
anyone share the gospel with me. I was in pain and without hope growing up, I know
there will be many kids in the audience hurting and near suicide. Lets pray the Lords
grace reaches them first. I love you guys and Im grateful for your help, It is not in vain.
By Gods awesome grace we were able to preach the gospel clearly and boldly at the Temecula Promenade Mall to over 3,000 people at the concert yesterday. People that were out for a day of shopping for a gift, received the best gift of all, the gift that lasts for eternity, salvation in Christ Jesus!!!
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): Please pray for our C28 Concert this weekend in Temecula CA. The gospel will be preached boldly at a public mall! Please pray for God to produce a harvest.
