Mission Work Groups
This month, we kicked off our busy spring season of building nine houses with nine teams in seven weeks! We had teams come from North Carolina, Texas, and Indiana to build houses, see old friends, make new ones, and fellowship together in the love of Christ. We spent time out in the garden in Naranjito and made preparations for the new Deantin community center there. Plus, we had a team of medical students come from South Carolina to help Dr. Joaquin and nurse Betty serve the community at the clinic. It’s been a great start to spring!

Save the Date: October 19!
On Saturday, October 19, we’ll be hosting a fiesta in Reynosa, Mexico, to celebrate Faith Ministry’s 25 years of making a difference! We’ll reflect on the impact of the ministry, honor the memory of our beloved founder Deantin, rejoice over what’s to come, and have a ton of fun. Join us in Reynosa that weekend and help us celebrate what God has done here on the border since 1994. Dios los bendiga!
We believe in the power of prayer, so please join us in praying for:
- Nurse Betty’s mom, who was hospitalized this week and needs surgery. Pray for her mom’s health and condition, as well as the doctors and medical professionals caring for her.
- Benito, our pastor in Miguel Alemán, who suffered a stroke at the end of last year. His speech and physical therapy is going well, so continue praying for his strength and recovery.
- Praise! Marisela, our cook in Reynosa, fell last month and injured her wrist, and we are glad to report that she has healed and is doing much better!
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
