In 1999, we began sending teams to Reynosa during the summer for short-term trips in conjunction with another organization. When this other group eventually decided to stop organizing trips to Reynosa, we had a decision to make: do we cut ties with the people and churches that we have had the opportunity to impact in city filled with need, or do we keep going back for the sake of the increasing impact that God might see fit to make through us? We chose the second option! All of our efforts in Reynosa are done in conjunction with our sister church, House of Blessing Church. Our efforts in Reynosa are typically broken into the Big Mexico Summer Trip, Mexico Pastors’ Conference Trips, and a Mexico House Building Trip.
Big Mexico 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 covering general medicine, dentistry and vision. The building team pours the foundations for the homes to be built on the House Building Trip. The communities and churches continue to grow, and the efforts to help in this are only possible by your help through giving, prayer, and going! Whether through prayer, your presence, or financial support we would love for you to take part! The cost of this trip is $500.
Mexico Pastors’ Conference Trips – We typically send teams down twice a year, once to Reynosa and once to Rio Bravo with the goal of better equipping Mexican pastors. The majority of pastors have no prior 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 get to encourage and build into 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 of this trip is $250.
Mexico House Building Trip – Every year we have the God-given opportunity to reach several families in need in the congregation of our sister church in Reynosa, Mexico by building cinder block houses for them. As of 2023, BCBC has built 35 houses, one church, a kitchen for a church, repaired a church damaged by fire, and the Pastor Jesus Castellano Ministry Center. The cost of this trip is $250.
