General description of the McAllen Ministry:Our church participates in projects along the TX-Mexico border. Teams form during the weekends of MLK Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. We partner with Texas Baptist River Ministry missionaries and also with Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande to serve families at the Humanitarian Respite center as they rest, have a meal, and prepare to continue on their journey to connect with sponsors. We also work with local Baptist church members to minister to people in its neighborhood Colonia.
