Opportunities to Serve

 

Brownsville, texas

Iglesia Bautista West Brownsville hosts 50-60 refugees a day. They need help in the kitchen preparing three meals a day. They also are ministering one on one to the refugees. You can come and help in the kitchen, serve meals, clean, sweep and mop. Some can relieve the night shift volunteers so they can get some rest because many stay up all night to monitor the refugees as they sleep and rest.

Another church, Iglesia Bautista Capernaum, makes breakfast tacos twice a week and goes to the bridge to feed the refugees who are waiting their turn to declare asylum. You can help cook, serve food at the bridge and pray for the refugees.

laredo, texas

A pastor and his family host 100 people a day at their house. They cook, serve, give shelter each night at their house and make phone calls to relatives so they can purchase bus or airplane tickets to go to their destination city. You can be of great help to this family who literally opened up their home when there was no place else for the refugees to go.
