Want to engage in meaningful mission work on the Mexican-American border?
Adopt a Border Community!
Churches on the border are serving people with great needs. People in their congregations and in their communities are plagued by poverty, hunger, housing needs, under-funded schools, high drop out rates, immigration issues and separation of families, and predatory lenders.
If you or your faith community is looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of people living on the border, you have a unique opportunity. Adopt a Border Community and commit to serving alongside the people there and supporting them in their work.
What do we do when we adopt a border community?
- Plan a mission trip to the border
- Worship together
- Listen, hear their stories, seek to understand their unique environment
- Find out about their ongoing missions and ministries and see how you can help
- Share their stories and what you learn with your own faith community and network
- Send financial support for their ministries
