Bringing Christmas Cheer at the Fiestas!

Over the span of four days this month, we had six different Christmas fiestas in Reynosa, Miguel Alemán and Naranjito, and they were a huge success! We were able to bless more than 850 people with fellowship, good food, prayer, songs, toys and candy. We delivered grocery packages to our volunteers and the families who received homes this year, and with a surplus of toys, we’ll be able to bless at least 300 more kids in our community! Most importantly, through these fiestas, we were able to show the love of Jesus and share what makes this time of year so meaningful. Thank you to everyone who supported these fiestas by donating funds, toys or their time to make them special!

Come to Mexico in 2018

If you or someone you know is looking for a missions opportunity, get in touch! We would love to work with you and your group. Spending a week here with a mission work group is an unforgettable experience. Not only will you build a house for a family in need and serve your brothers and sisters in Mexico, but you’ll develop deep and meaningful relationships that are unlike any others. Don’t miss this opportunity to share and show the love of Christ to others! Check out our 2018 mission work group schedule to find a week that works for your team, and email Colleen for more information or to reserve a week!

You Make This Possible

To each and every one of you: muchas gracias and thank you so very much! Your support makes the work we do possible, whether it is through donations, encouragement and prayer, or volunteering with a mission work group. God blessed our ministry and our communities so much in 2017, and we can’t wait to see what He has in store for 2018. Through all of this, we’re grateful and humbled to have you by our side! From all of us here at Faith Ministry, thank you and Happy New Year!

Prayer Requests

We believe in the power of prayer, so please join us in praying for:

  • Carmen, the wife of Pastor Benito in Miguel Alemán, who continues to deal with various health problems. Pray for her health and healing.
  • Beto, one of our construction workers in Reynosa, who will soon go for a follow-up following his surgery over the summer. Pray for good news from the doctors and for his health.
  • The safety and warmth of the families in our communities as they experience colder temperatures (and snow!) this season.

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” 
Romans 12:12
