This trip will partner with Hands and Feet Ministries and Missionaries.
Ministries you will visit:
Nava School is Hands and Feet’s primary outreach and more than likely the majority of the work you will be a part of will be done there. Nava School is a Christian Elementary School that serves some of the poorest families in Northern Mexico. The mission of Nava School is to provide a warm and loving environment for children to learn fundamental education and truths about Jesus Christ.
Aleluya Church, built by Hands and Feet missionaries, is home to a variety of ministries that reach out to the poor. Members of Aleluya Church worship together on Sundays and Wednesday afternoons. Apart from their weekly worship services, Aleluya Church offers hot cooked meals five days a week where 50-100 women and children come to enjoy lunch and participate in daily Bible studies. Also, the church provides opportunities for members to take computer classes and earn extra money by woodworking, welding, sewing, and jewelry making.
Casa Bethesda is a special needs orphanage for children and adults. It is one of the only orphanages of its kind in all of Northern Mexico. Pastor Paulino Esquivel and his wife Gilberta have created a sanctuary for these beautiful individuals, giving them a home and teaching them that they are valued in the eye’s of Christ.
Mundial De Asistencia A C is located in one of the poorest parts of Piedras. The local pastors converted their home into a fully functional industrial kitchen so that they could feed their neighbors. They had no money to provide the food needed to supply over 100 children and families with a much needed one meal a day, but they have never even had to ask for support. Everyday, food and supplies get donated and the community is fed. For some children, this is the only meal they get all day. The pastors' hearts are to keep kids off of the streets and out of the gangs where the need to make money in order to survive draws many away from their homes and loving families.
