MISSION TRIPS
Piedras Negras, Mexico

CrossRoads Missions Mexico intends to transform the city of Piedras Negras, Mexico, with the love and compassion of Christ by working alongside, and empowering, already-existing ministries. We provide encouragement, home ownership opportunities, Christian education, medical clinics, and youth programming.

More about Piedras Negras

Located at the northern border of the state of Coahuila in Mexico, Piedras Negras sits across the Rio Grande from Eagle Pass, Texas, and is about 150 miles southwest of San Antonio. The city’s population is approximately 250,000 and continues to grow. Due to its border location, the city is significantly influenced by the U.S. in areas such as religion, media, and even language.

CrossRoads Missions has been serving through construction projects and outreach programs in Piedras Negras for more than a quarter-century. One of the cornerstones of our work there is building the neighborhood of Piedra Angular, where we have constructed nearly 40 homes intended for families that have committed to missional living. Other construction projects include two churches, two schools, and an orphanage. Outreach programs have included soccer camps, medical clinics, soup kitchens, hospital feeding programs, and other activities, depending on ministry needs.

Two to three weeks out of the year, medical teams partner with local churches and ministry leaders in Piedras Negras to provide clinics as an outreach tool in neighborhoods throughout the city. Clinics set up by our medical teams serve the local community through compassionate healthcare by providing basic checkups and medicine for ailments. The clinics are based on the biblical model of caring for the body, mind, and spirit. Our goal is that, through our outstanding patient care and the church leaders’ counsel, God’s love is shown and patients will come to know Christ. Volunteer teams of healthcare professionals and students are needed to conduct these clinics. Participants experience a supervised, hands-on experience. Non-medical individuals are also welcome and participate in clinics according to their ability and experience. For more information on our medical missions, contact Michele Harrell at michele@crossroadsmissions.com.
