In 1999, we began sending teams to Reynosa during the summer for short-term trips in conjunction with another organization. When that organization decided to stop doing trips to Reynosa, we had our own decision to make: do we cut ties with the people and churches that we have an opportunity to impact in a city filled with need, or do we keep going to Mexico for the sake of what God might see fit to continue doing through us? We chose the second option and the Lord has blessed it! All our current efforts in Reynosa are done in partnership with our sister church, House of Blessing Church. Our missions work in Mexico is typically done via four trips throughout the year, which are detailed below.
Mexico Big Summer Mission Trip – We host VBS for the children, a sports outreach for the older kids, a Bible study for the women of the church who carry the torch of faith in the home, deliver school supplies to families in need, and hold a clinic offering general medicine, dentistry, and vision care. The building team pours the foundations for the homes to be built on the House Building Trip (see below). The communities and churches continue to grow, and these efforts are possible only with your help. Whether you can give, pray, go – or do all three – we encourage you to be a part of this trip every year! The cost to go on this trip is $500.
Mexico Pastors Conference Trips – We send a team twice per year, once to Reynosa and once to Rio Bravo, with the goal of better equipping Mexican pastors. The majority of pastors have no formal training, must work full-time in addition to shepherding their local church, and experience quite a bit of hardship. It is a joy to encourage and build up these faithful men. The call to make disciples by equipping pastors, their wives, and families is in line with our philosophy to “know Christ better, and make Him known.” Participants on this trip will assist with administration and food preparation for pastors and their wives. The cost to go on these trips is $250 each.
Mexico House Building Trip – We have the God-given opportunity to reach several families in need by building cinder block houses for them. We are connected to these families by our sister church in Reynosa. As of 2023, BCBC has built 35 houses. We’ve also built a church, added a kitchen to a church, repaired a church damaged by fire, and built the Pastor Jesus Castellano Ministry Center. The cost to go on this trip is $250.
More recently, opportunities to serve people in Africa have become available. We are so grateful that God has allowed BCBC to extend its ministry to another continent! There are two types of efforts and we partner with Mercy Trips for the medical one.
Uganda Medical Mission Trip – We help with medical care and teaching. Medical professionals and others are needed. Click here for some details about the trip we took in 2021, and contact Craig Daniel (email@example.com) for more information.
Africa (Uganda/Rwanda/Burundi) Pastors Conference Trip – We serve and train the pastors of these African nations. Please contact our Children’s & Missions Pastor, Adam Scott, for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org
