End of Year Giving

Christmas Fiestas!

This month, we hosted several Christmas fiestas in Reynosa, Miguel Alemán, and Naranjito! They were a wonderful celebration of the birth of Jesus and a special time of fellowship and festivities. More than 1,000 adults and kids came through our doors for food, prayer, Christmas carols, games, face painting, bouncy houses, soccer balls, toys, and candy. We also gave away grocery packages to our volunteers and the families who received homes this year, as well as other families in our communities. More importantly, we were able to show the love of Jesus to our community and share together in what makes this season truly special. To each and every one of you who supported these fiestas by sending soccer balls and gifts, donating funds, or coming down to help, we cannot say thank you enough!

Thank You and Muchas Gracias!

From all of us here at Faith Ministry, thank you so much for your support and friendship throughout 2019! You helped us make our 25th year of service here on the border a successful one, sharing and showing the love of God to our brothers and sisters and making a difference, one family at a time.

We know how blessed we are to have each of you as a friend. Whether it was through financial contributions, encouragement and prayer, and/or coming down to work with us on the border, your support in 2019 helped make the work we do possible.

We are excited for a new year, a new decade, and all that God will do at Faith Ministry in 2020. Thank you again for being alongside us every step of the way. On behalf of our staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors, muchas gracias and Happy New Year!

Prayer Requests

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

  • Dora, one of our caretakers in Reynosa, as she navigates decisions related to her wrist injury earlier this year. Pray for patience and guidance for her and her family.
  • Our staff and volunteers and their families this holiday season!

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

Written by David, who reunited this year with a young man in Reynosa who he hadn’t seen in six years:

“Even if we don’t see [him] again, each of us carries the imprint of our connection, the shared love that flows from God through us and to each other. And the imprint of that love and that connection is repeated all over Reynosa, between every person that we’ve come in contact with over the years.”

25 Years in Photos & Videos

To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we’ll be sharing “throwback” photos and videos throughout the year. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more!

To celebrate the end of our 25th year and to honor nurse Betty’s retirement this year, here’s a shot of Deantin and Betty in the very early days of Faith Ministry. Both of these special people had incredible faith and vision and helped bring the ministry to the place it is today!
