Mission Trip Dates
July 6 - 13, 2018
“The Colonia” is a village parallel with the U.S. / Mexican border near McAllen, Texas. Over 500 families have found themselves with nowhere to go but here, living in dismal conditions. Missionaries Bruce and Paula Hepburn have been serving these people for almost a decade; building homes, teaching them skills, and providing needs similar to “Helping Hands”. When they arrived people were stand-offish of each other and there was a lack of community. Now when neighbors see each other they embrace and share whatever they have with each other. This transformation comes from the Hepburns’ commitment to walk beside these people for so long and share the love and hope Christ has for all of his people. We have an opportunity to partner with them and join in their ministry. Our missional goal is to partner with the local ministry as they serve the people of “The Colonia”.
