Upcoming Border Ministry Activities
Our May mission trip to Piedras Negras, MX was an adventure in God’s glorious Kingdom! We were lovingly welcomed to Rey de Reyes Methodist Iglesia by nearly 100 children and about 20 volunteer adults (some of whom were young children 8 years ago when we began visiting their church!). You provided fruit snacks, juice jugs, cookies (lovingly baked/prayed over by UCUMC women), and pizza! We shared a Bible Lesson, song, art project, a small toy, and God’s warm love!
Next we dropped tons of food/supplies off at Mary/Flavio’s “Iglesia Adonai” (home church feeding about 50 children/adults). We picked up 15 lovely crosses commissioned by the Rio Texas Conference to commemorate pastors who had stepped into God’s glorious eternity! [Side story = one of our men sent a saw to Flavio ~ only our gracious Lord knew that Flavio’s trusty well-used saw had been just broken ~ unrepairable!] We share the delight of God’s AMAZING provisions for His children!
Our last stop was at House of Mercy Orphanage where we helped celebrate the birthdays of 2 grateful, precious children! UCUMC sponsors 3 of the monthly parties each year! We were delighted to hug the new bride, Laurel (missionary from Ohio) and her new husband, Jesus! Once again we heard stories of God’s AMAZING love and provisions for His children!
