The purpose for the food pantry is to reach out to the needy of our community. To be a blessing to them physically as well as Spiritually. We offer a church service before they get their food. Many have received Jesus Christ as the Lord & Savior of their lives.
Thanks to the generous giving from our supporters, we are able to offer this program. We purchase the main food from the Food Bank in Pharr, TX and unload it in our on-site Food Pantry where Linda Hough and some of the women from the church divide it out into bags/boxes for the registered families. We serve from 42 to 50 families weekly. Each family is scheduled to pick up their food boxes once a month for the main food, according to the size of their family. The rest of the month they can come weekly for what we call "Freebies". This consists of fruit, vegetables, bread, and other items that are donated from the local stores and truckloads of day old foods.
If you would like to donate to help provide food for the hungry, please click on the "Donate Button" below to go to the "DONATE" page. Absolutely 100% of the donations go toward the purchase of food.
Please specify in the "NOTE" field that your donation is for the Food Pantry.
We have an RV Park where missionaries can come out of Mexico to rest, relax, refresh and fellowship with other missionaries. Stock up on needed supplies, renew their Visas, etc... Many missionaries use the Home Base as their US mailing address and we manage their US banking for them as well. We supply them with Bibles, literature and tracks when available. We supply them with food, Video Schools in Spanish to train the natives, and at times hold a Spanish course to help the missionaries learn or improve their Spanish language.
We provide a place to stay for church mission teams , or church groups, youth/men/women retreats. We have multiple RV trailers available for families of two to five people, and men and women air conditioned dormitories that house 18 people in each. There is a large Fellowship Hall with a kitchen for the groups to meet and feed their team. There is a laundromat and men/women shower rooms to clean up.
Some church teams come to assist their supported missionary on day trips into Mexico and come back into the states to sleep. They come to assist us with so many ministry opportunities, helping to build or do maintenance on our home base, minister in Mexico at one of our churches, holding Bible School for the children, building new church buildings, or repair work on Pastor's or needy natives homes. We can find something for everyone to do, be it helping in the office or the food pantry, manual labor, or ministering, we can put your gifts to good use. We can also make arrangements for the teams to have an interpreter to assist them while ministering.
We would love to talk to you about the possibility of your church team coming. If you do not have a specific missionary to serve, we have a lot of opportunities for you to serve and to make a difference in so many people's lives. Please contact us and we would be glad to help you plan your next mission trip. Let us know what you would like to do in the email, and we can find the right place for you to serve.
