MUMC MISSION TRIP TO MEXICO
A group from MUMC will be leaving for Mexico on Aug. 7th – 12th .
Wednesday: the folks going on the mission will drive to the McAllen area, where they will meet up with the True Path Ministries in Texas and we then drive on to Galeana (at least 10 hours total).
Thursday: finish Rey’s Church restroom, and buy the material for Friday; & the Kid’s club preparation.
Friday: we travel to Refugio install a roof; (the ladies may possibly paint the camp kitchen in La Laguna)
Saturday: we travel to Rayones, hold a (Adult and children) service, give out
clothes and dollar store lenses.
Sunday: Worship service at Rey’s church in Galeana
Monday: we drive to the border and on to Medina (11 or 12 hours depending on wait time at USA bridge)
In addition to any specific project we tackle, we would use the time to encourage our fellow Mexican Christians (very few outside Christians come to this area) and evangelize non-Christians. We will minister to both their spiritual and physical needs which includes visits, prayers, worship, blessing bags and sharing other gifts as we are led by the spirit.
If you would like to go and help serve our LORD and Savior in this ministry, please let Donna Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) know ASAP. In order for True Path Ministries to arrange for our trip, they need to know how many people will be coming, their gender and age.
You will need a passport and a visa in order to go. These take time, so if you want to go, please start the passport process immediately. If you are unable to go but would like to support the trip, money will be needed in order to accomplish the projects listed. Thank you!
