In 2012, we began to feel called to develop long-term ministry partners in the Rio Grande Valley. At that time, the Lord opened doors for us to do a youth mission trip and gave us 3 partners in Mission, Texas; El Mesias UMC, Methodist Boarder Ministries and Good Samm. After that first trip, we knew the people we met would be life long friends. The Lord has expanded our summer team into a family based mission trip. Since 2013, we have taken teams of 110 people ages 6 and older. We do VBS, construction, medical and prayer ministry. Our VBS team organizes 3 different camps and are able to show Jesus’ love to over 200 children. We also enjoy serving in the local food pantry. Such fun and easy labor provides thousands of meals for border families. We participate in 4 construction projects located in the Colonias. We were thrilled to be able to leave these amazing families with new bathrooms, new floors and in one case a whole new addition.
We look forward to partnering with El Mesias UMC and other outreaches and churches in the RGV to provide support for the physical and spiritual needs of individuals in the Colonias. Join us on Sunday, November 5th at our 9am or 11am Worship Gathering for “Overflow Sunday” where we will be releasing all of our information for our 2018 Mission Trip opportunities.
