On our Mexico mission trip, Spanish is not required because the Holy Spirit connects you on a deeper level and we have trusty translators, too. We’ll worship with our Mexican neighbors, and experience firsthand the knowledge that we are truly brothers and sisters in Christ.
“There is no way to better epitomize what it means to ‘Love one another’ than to go serve in Reynosa with Faith Ministry. I personally feel called to serve in Reynosa because it is the opportunity to live out what it means to be the hands and feet of Christ. It is on this trip that I realized that God is working through us all, giving us an opportunity to build one family a place to sleep at night. It would be so easy to just write a check to Faith Ministry, but there is a reason that we go to serve. Despite having so little, our brothers and sisters in Reynosa love so well, and it is through them that I learned that this trip is so much more than cinder blocks and concrete burns. This trip is about making a difference through love and learning that each individual has a home with God. I believe God is calling us all to put ourselves out of our comfort zones to live out His word, and I cannot think of a better way to do so than to go to go serve in Reynosa with Faith Ministry.” Callie Bernard
The physical part of the week is building a home for a family, we will also explore their medical clinic, nutrition program, and learn how they provide school scholarships.
