2021 Mexico Mission Update:
The mobilization of volunteers has been postponed to the summer of 2022. We continue to pray for the physical and spiritual wellbeing of the people in Reynosa. Feel free to reach out to Diane Regensburger (email@example.com) or Pastor Matt (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
The First Presbyterian Church Witness Committee has allocated $6000 for the Faith Ministry mission. Our partnership with Faith Ministry enables our congregation to provide food and life-giving assistance to families in Reynosa.
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.
