Eduardo organized the Gala to benefit the Medical Center pro-life in USA

January 15th 2011 - Los Angeles - Agenzia Fides

“We are compelled to step up our efforts and will power of the soul to help the unfortunate, the sick and the poor, strengthen family ties, practice charity and live with integrity. This all will make Christ enter our heart, allowing him to become part of our soul,” states Mexican producer and star of the film “Bella”, international speaker and much recognized pro-life advocate, Eduardo Verástegui, in his recent Christmas message. Verástegui spoke to the Osservatore Romano English edition at the end of 2009 about his dream to raise the necessary funds to open a pro-life medical center in the middle of all the abortion clinics in Los Angeles (LA). This dream is about to be realized. He announced the fact that plans are underway for his international aid organization, “Mantle of Guadalupe”, to build the largest crisis pregnancy centre in the United States on 15 January at a gala dinner in Beverly Hills. 300 guests at the dinner raised funds for the pro-life Mantle of Guadalupe medical center which recently opened in LA and provides free of charge pre-natal care, ultrasounds and natural family planning to women in need.

So, Eduardo Verástegui continues on his mission, tirelessly working to prevent abortions. He regularly stands in front of abortion clinics and begs the pregnant women going in for a minute of their time. He offers solutions, helping them with medical care, food, finding work, whatever it takes. He told guests at the 15 January gala dinner, “I will not use my talents except to elevate my Christian, pro-life and Hispanic values.” He introduced the guests to some of the babies saved from abortion thanks to his organization's work and announced the launch of a new website www.IamViable.com, an on-line community where people come to celebrate the unique abilities that God has placed in each and every individual.

Hong Kong Mission: Bella the Movie This week in Hong Kong Nov 10-18 I and our team will need your daily prayers and fervent intercessions for protection and God's purpose to be accomplished. Our mission team, myself, Carl, Jin, Peter Gent, Eduardo Verastegui and our local leaders in Hong Kong will be campaigning for the release of the movie Bella in Hong Kong, China.

His movie as you know has impacted lives all over America with the message of LIFE. Many babies have not been aborted after young women have watched this movie. God has opened a door of mercy to Hong Kong to be saved as Hong Kong is the number one industrialized city for the number of abortions, literally 1 out of 3 babies in HK are aborted each year.

We are praying that this movie will be watched by every family in Hong Kong and Asia so their hearts will be convicted, touched and changed so that they will consider keeping the destined lives in their wombs and others would rise up to adopt many unwanted children, who are completely desired and wanted by our Father in heaven.

Eduardo Verástegui the lead actor in Bella and myself will be going from church to church and holding press conferences to promote this beautiful film all over HK during the next 10 days. The movie gala premiere will be Nov 10th evening. That night MC JIN and myself will perform a new song we recorded called "THANK YOU" which tells the story and message of being thankful for the precious life that has been given to us by God. Pray that this song goes all over every radio station in Hong Kong to inspire and change hearts in youth and old alike.

"Bella" Star Works to Protect Unborn

Madrid, Nov 7, 2008 - EWTN News

Mexican actor turned pro-life leader Eduardo Verastegui is in Spain this week promoting his movie “Bella,” which debuts there this weekend. While in Barcelona, Verastegui spoke about his desire to protect the unborn, especially Hispanics in the U.S.

According to the Efe news agency, Verastegui said the film, directed by Alejandro Monteverde, is intended “to touch the hearts of all,” and is a result of his desire to produce a film that “elevates and saves the dignity of Hispanics in the United States.”

“It’s also a hymn to life and to the respect for the basic values that are being lost, especially among young people,” he added.

“Bella,” which won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival in 2006, will debut in 100 theaters in Spain this weekend. Verastegui plays Jose, a soccer star about to sign a multimillion dollar contract whose life takes a tragic turn until he meets Nina, a pregnant waitress who wants to get an abortion.

“There’s nothing greater than protecting life, from conception to natural death,” Verastegui said, adding that he is disappointed with Hollywood’s stereotyping of Hispanics.

“Hispanics are more often portrayed as crooks, rappers or womanizers instead of as everyday heroes who struggle to find their place in society through hard work,” he said.

“So I promised myself I would never offend the Hispanic community, my values and my family again,” he stated, adding that the result was the birth of Metanoia Films, the company that produced “Bella.”

Eduardo Verastegui Endorses John McCain

Cindy McCain, John McCain and Eduardo Verástegui

CENTENNIAL, CO -- Today the McCain-Palin campaign announced the endorsement of Eduardo Verastegui, one of today's fastest rising Latino stars. Best known for his starring roles in the 2006 movie Bella and other Mexican soap operas, Verastegui was voted by People en Espaol as one of the "50 Most Beautiful People" in the world. He has made appearances in the popular TV series, Charmed, as Mr. Right, and in Jennifer Lopez's "Ain't It Funny" video and her new perfume commercials.

"John McCain is the only candidate for president that shares my values of life," Verastegui said. "He truly recognizes that we are all God's children. John McCain is someone we can trust to do what is right and follow through on what he says -- as opposed to Barack Obama, who does not share our traditional values of defending innocent life and the sanctity of marriage. Obama has proven this time and time again. During his personal experience as a POW in Vietnam, McCain renewed and strengthened his faith. And early this year in the heat of a political battle, he had the courage to stand against his own party and support comprehensive immigration reform. His resolve serves as a reminder to us all that we must vote our values and our conscience, and not vote simply by party. We can't afford a president who lacks experience and judgment and would stand for values that are out of step with the Hispanic community and this country. Although I seldom thrust myself into political campaigns, I recognize the stakes and that it's most important that we put our values first and support John McCain."

Five lives were saved because Eduardo Verástegui answered the Holy Spirit’s call

September 27 2008 - Los Angeles

Here’s a photo of Eduardo at that 40 Days for Life outside the abortion center on Saturday morning.

Los Angeles- Over these last 48 hours, the Bereit family has been to four more 40 Days for Life locations: in Vallejo, Napa, Sacramento, and Lake Tahoe, California (I know — it’s a tough job, but somebody has to visit these beautiful places…) In addition to the inspiring people we’ve met, we’ve also learned that a little star treatment can help work miracles! John Anthony is helping lead the 40 Days for Life vigil at Family Planning Associates, the busiest abortion facility in Los Angeles.
He knew Saturday would be a difficult day, and was praying as many volunteers as possible would be on hand to stand witness. Those prayers were answered — and then some — with the arrival of actor Eduardo Verastegui, the start of the movie Bella, and several of his friends. “Eduardo arrived a little after 8 am and did not stop counseling, praying and encouraging women to choose life for their babies — with love, tenderness, humility and compassion — until a little after noon,” John Anthony said.
“God is good — five babies were saved that morning!” But that isn’t the end of the story. John Anthony said it wasn’t just abortion-minded mothers that caught Eduardo’s attention.
“The day had a dramatic ending when eight nurses from the clinic came outside to meet Eduardo!” He spoke with the nurses and gave them copies of his new Spanish language pro-life video, “Dura Realidad.” “Please pray for these precious turnarounds,” John Anthony asked, “and for the conversion of all clinic workers and for Eduardo — what a courageous witness and backer of courageous words with action!”
In Los Angeles, lives were saved because a well-known actor answered the Holy Spirit’s call.

Eduardo Verástegui's Mantle of Guadalupe Foundation Fulfills another Mission

Founded by Eduardo Verástegui in December 2005, Mantle of Guadalupe has the dual mission of providing assistance to minor pregnant women while promoting adoption; and better shelter conditions for impoverished families in underserved regions. This past June, Eduardo led a team of volunteers deep into the mountains of Puebla, Mexico, to help a community in need. In the eight days the mission lasted, the group built several houses and replaced many deteriorated roofs. Eduardo was joined by priest Juan Guerra in this outreach effort that involved the participation of approximately 50 young men and women. The youngsters, mainly from the United States, began their journey at the Basilica of Guadalupe in the Mexican capital, from where they then parted by bus to the city of Puebla. Once there, they continued along winding roads through the mountains to reach the remote village nestled in a valley where they would set up and serve the following days. As the pictures will show, all construction materials had to be carried by hand or on the shoulders of team members. At moments it rained abundantly, which made the task more difficult. But that didn't put a damper on the group's enthusiasm. Nothing could deter their willingness to help. At week's end, Eduardo and volunteers said good-bye to very grateful new friends, smiling and waving from the door of their new, or newly-renovated, homes.

The event will explore innovative domestic and international models for solving the needs of orphans and vulnerable children. An estimated 143 million children face the world as orphans in the developing world today, while an even larger number of children are highly vulnerable.

Without parents, children are often deprived of the love and protection they need and are susceptible to abuse, illness, poverty and other injustices.

Families find glamour, groceries at local movie premiere

June 7 th 2006

By Joey Guerra For The Chronicle

Houston families were the real stars at the premiere of Meet Me in Miami on Tuesday night at the Cinemark Tinseltown Westchase.

The event was sponsored by Lift Up America, a nonprofit organization that provides necessities for needy children and their parents. Mexican heartthrob Eduardo Verastegui and New Zealand actress Tara Lenist on, who star in the film, were on hand to meet with families, sign autographs and pose for photos.

"I want to make films ... to make a difference in society," Eduardo Verastegui said. "This is my first time where I'm at a premiere that is going to be about my friends — the children ... I'm going to ask them for an autograph."

Children were driven to the premiere in limousines, walked the red carpet and were given on-site hearing and sight tests. After a free screening of the film, families were given groceries. "I never dreamt it would be possible to touch thousands of lives," said the film's producer, Lisa Abbott.

The romantic comedy opens Friday exclusively in Houston. Moviegoers will receive free admission that day until 6 p.m. if they bring a nonperishable food item, pair of eyeglasses or hearing aids to select Cinemark theaters.


Premiere Meet me in Miami - Houston - Texas

June 6 th 2006

The mother of four will make history when her film, 'Meet Me In Miami' has its red carpet film premiere in Houston on Tuesday, June 6. The way Abbott is releasing 'Meet Me In Miami' is believed to be a new innovative model of film distribution that is designed to impact a city through a momentum of giving.

Abbott, along with the film's director, Eric Hannah, and some of America's leading corporations have joined forces to give over two million dollars worth of products to Houston's less fortunate population in a star-studded night of "giving hope at the movies."

Free eye tests and eye glasses, free hearing tests and hearing aids, children's soft toys and numerous food products, will be gifted to the less fortunate from off the red carpet. The housewife with a heart to lift up the nation of America is "delighted" to release her first film in this way by giving the "gift of entertainment" at the special premiere night event.

'Meet Me In Miami' is a sweet, lighthearted film about never giving up on a dream. It stars two of Latin America's biggest heartthrobs in Eduardo Verastegui and Carlos Ponce. Verastegui will join Abbott, Hannah and other Hollywood stars to begin a 40 cities US tour of giving for 'Meet Me In Miami's' theatrical release. Houston kick starts the national tour.

MORE THAN 5.000 YOUNGSTERS LISTENED CAREFULLY TO EDUARDO

March 7 th 2006

Eduardo Verástegui gave an excellent conference at Congreso Internacional Gente Nueva for more than 5.000 young people where he shared his personal experience about Morale in the Arts.

Eduardo had his first experience as a lecturer at the Congreso Gente Nueva 2006, there he asked these young people not no be caught by appearances, trends, television and friends.

Eduardo is a well known musician and actor for mexican soap operas. He recognized that most of his life he wanted to be famous and wealthy but he also mentioned that after getting what he wanted he didn't feel whole and happy inside for which he went through difficult moments in his life experiencing internal tests that made him change his lifestyle "in favour of human rights and God's Love"

Because of this emptiness Verástegui looked for shelter in Christ and spent around two years without working because he felt the jobs he was offered weren't coherent with his values and with the help of his friend Yasmin he decided to enter a monastery and to dedicate his life to God. But the presence of Father Juan Rivas was crucial when he told him that it wasn't necessary "to become a priest to change but instead he could take advantage of his talent to achieve that change he was looking for.

From that moment Eduardo's view of life changed completely and decided to follow Father Rivas' advice so he created a film production company that makes movies which offer and promote human values.

Eduardo, to fight for his new dream, went into business with two friends that were in the movie business, to the point that he went to the Vatican to entrust his work to God and there he met an investor from Philadelphia, who put his money to take a story of values to the cinema.

Today, Eduardo Verástegui is convinced that he had taken the wrong path before and he didn't hesitate to invite the attendees to examine their concience and let their masks and prejudices fall which have prevented us from discovering our real self.

At the end, the members had the chance to ask him questions, he was grateful for the support and he also admitted being nervous because of this first participation in front of an audience of thousands of young people.

When it was finished the comment was not only about the special feeling Eduardo has with people but also the way he approached the subject.

Every day Eduardo is more interested in young people to understand Morale and Values so they could know that this's the only way to improve Life in the Planet.

He's not seduced by Hollywood, he only wants to do movies that leave an education that can raise the spirit of the human being.
