Mexico Missions

2019 Update:

Please be in prayer for the Faith Ministry team that will be traveling June 23-29.

The Buy a Block/Build a House program

It takes approximately 600 blocks to build a 12’ x 24’ home in Mexico. The Witness Committee – under the authority of the Session – has created the Buy A Block/Build A House program to allow more people to participate directly in the Mexico Mission. All who wish to join are encouraged to buy blocks at $10 each. You can buy as many as you wish and we will track the progress in Eller Hall. Donation envelopes and a box to put them in are located in Eller Hall.
In addition, we want everyone to fill in index cards with prayers and favorite Scriptures for the families we will build the houses for. As the team builds the walls of the houses, we will place the cards in the blocks so that as we build the house, we will also cover the house with Scripture and prayers for the families. Again, these cards are in Eller Hall.
We hope that everyone in the congregation will participate in both the buying of blocks AND covering the families with Holy Scripture and prayer. It is not necessary that you buy a block in order to participate in the Scripture/prayer ministry.

 The 2017 Mission to Mexico

First Presbyterian Church mission members worked with Faith Ministry to build houses just south of the border. From all accounts, the mission for 2017 was a big success. Click here for a video slideshow of the mission.

THE FAMILIES WE BUILT FOR:

The first will be Casa #17 for the Martinez Guillen family – this home will be for Angel, who is our construction supervisor. Also sharing the space will be his younger brother Fernando, who also works for us as a long-term volunteer, as well as Fernando’s wife Karina, and their three kids: Kendra (age 9, 3rd grade), Remigio (age 3) and Itziry Fernanda (age 1 ½).
The second will be Casa #18 for the Hernandez family – José, who works for us as our garden caretaker and nightguard, his sons José Cruz, who works for us as a construction foreman, and Roberto, who works in a factory, and José Cruz’s three daugthers: Judith (age 12, 5th grade), Grecia (age 11, 3rd grade), and Aylin (age 8, 1st grade).
