A Mission Trip to the Southern Border

Outreach Ministries announces an eight-day mission trip to the Arizona/Mexico border, Oct. 12-19, 2019.

This trip is being organized with Frontera de Cristo, a Presbyterian border ministry located in the sister cities of Agua Prieta, Sonora (Mexico) and Douglas, Arizona.

Frontera de Cristo is one of five bi-national ministry sites of Presbyterian Border Region Outreach, which works with churches, presbyteries and secular organizations on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. Frontera de Cristo provides cross-border education, a weekly children’s Bible school, and health and church development ministries. It also operates a Migrant Resource Center that provides basic humanitarian needs and other services to migrants, particularly the recently deported.

“By engaging in Frontera de Cristo’s work, we hope participants will come away with a better understanding of the immigration crisis at our southern border,” says Debbie Mullins, one of the organizers of the mission trip.

The trip can accommodate up to 10 participants. Cost will be approximately $1,500 per person, which includes round-trip airfare to Tucson. Dormitory-style housing and meals will be provided by Lily of the Valley Church in Agua Prieta. Participants must download and complete the application form. The application deadline is Sunday, June 9.
