PURPOSE

Seeking to provide for those in need and serve as Christ did, ServeMexico transforms the city of Piedras Negras, Mexico, with love and compassion by working alongside and empowering already-existing ministries through construction projects and outreach programs.

HISTORY

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 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 religion, media, and even language.

DETAILS

Volunteer teams spend time serving in the community by getting plugged into our ongoing service programs. Group participants work together to display a testimony of God’s love and meet essential needs through construction projects and outreach programs to empower local partners to bring sustainable change in their community so that when we leave, the ministry of Jesus continues. Construction projects in the Mexico field are primarily aimed toward finishing homes on the remaining 10 lots available in Piedra Angular and existing CrossRoads facilities within the neighborhood. These projects provide homeownership for local residents. All homes are sold at cost creating rare, affordable housing.

There are also often opportunities to assist our local partners with the 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 housing place 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 engaging with our refugee friends.

Medical teams partner with local organizations in Piedras Negras to provide clinics in neighborhoods throughout the city. Clinics set up by our medical teams serve the local community through compassionate healthcare by providing essential checkups and medicine for ailments. The clinics offer a holistic approach to care: mind, body, and soul. Our goal is that, through our outstanding patient care, 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
