Seeking to glorify Christ through worship, service, and discipleship, 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 through construction projects and outreach programs.
CrossRoads Missions has been present in Piedras Negras, Mexico (on the Texas Border), for more than a quarter-century. Past construction projects include two churches, two schools, an orphanage and a neighborhood of many single-family homes with a community center. Outreach programs include soccer camps, medical clinics, soup kitchens, hospital feeding programs, community events and other activities depending on ministry needs.
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, Texas. 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.
Construction projects in the Mexico field are primarily aimed
toward finishing homes on the remaining 10 lots available in Piedra Angular as well as existing CrossRoads facilities within the neighborhood. There are also often opportunities to assist our local partners with upkeep and renovation of their facilities. CrossRoads staff, interns and local professionals will supervise work including concrete, drywall, tile, roofing, painting and other various work projects.
Outreach programs include community events, feeding programs, and medical missions. Our current outreach focus is refugee relief work. We fund an open meal program, offer a place of housing at The Ranch, and provide groceries for individual families. Different ways that our teams get plugged in are by grocery shopping, cooking a meal, and fellowshiping with our refugee friends.
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, students, and even non-medical individuals are needed to conduct these clinics. For more information on our medical missions, contact Michele Harrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
