We Need Your Photos, Videos & Stories!

September 20, 2018|News, Reflections|

As many of you know, 2019 will be Faith Ministry’s 25th year of service on the border in Mexico. As we approach this important anniversary year, we are thinking of ways to reflect on the past 25 years and how we can tell the story of Faith Ministry to others. And here’s where we need your help.

We want your photos & videos from years past, & we want your favorite Mexico stories!

Here’s how you can share:

Stories

Email your stories (either as an email message or an attached Word document) to usoffice@faithministry.org.

  • Please include your name, the year(s) you came, and your church/group name and city/state (the group you came on the trips with).
  • You can include up to 2-3 photos that accompany your story.

Photos & Videos

We’d love to see any photos and/or videos from 1994 to 2014 (though if you have any special photos from the past few years, feel free to share).
