2019 Group 1 Day 6

We spent most of the day in the vans traveling from McAllen, TX to Brownsville, TX then into Matamores, Mexico for a visit to the Magdiel Bible School then back across the border to finish our 8hour drive to San Antonio. The drivers and their navigators riding in...

2019 Group 1 Day 5

Today everyone is aware of the spiritual high we experienced on Sunday. So we are more deliberately encouraging one another and praying that we will win the spiritual warfare with God’s help in the day ahead. This is our last day of work projects and we know that...

2019 Group 1 Day 4

Spoiler alert! Today we experienced an awesome outpouring of God’s love and presence of the Holy Spirit in our midst. The itinerary was a day of worship and play in Reynosa, Mexico. The morning devotion took place in a small ‘colonia ‘ in Nopalera. The devotional...

2019 Group 1 Day 3

We begin after breakfast as we do each day with the group declaring Christ’s word from Acts 1:8 “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all of Judea and Sumaria, and to the ends of the earth.” The songs...

2019 Group 1 Day 2

The day started early at 7:00 am following a good breakfast with a time of praise through singing. What a wonderful way to start the morning with a crowded room of men’s voices led by acoustic guitars acknowledging God’s holiness and saving grace. Perseverance and its...

2019 Group 1 Day 1

Today was a big day of travel for 79 men from around the country.  We convened in San Antonio where many men renewed old friendships with warm open arms and others quickly found that we were all drawn to a common purpose to serve and glorify God in the week ahead. ...

2018 Group 3 Day 6

What a spectacular day of worship. We started off at Bruce Hepburn’s place in likely the poorest colony we ever visit.  Our worship team led us in several songs followed by communion.  We closed the service singing How Great Thou Art.  The experience is both difficult...

2018 Group 3 Day 5

What a glorious day.  We had crews working projects at Sende De Vida, Big Heart Orphanage and a prison ministry for the first part of the day.  I was fortunate enough to get to go to Sende De Vida.  That is my favorite place we go to each year.  The story of that...

2018 Group 3 Day 4

Today was a full day at the Magdiel Bible College in Matamoros MX.  What a great day playing games with the students, worshiping and eating lunch with them.  And we were able to squeeze in a short soccer game at the end.  Truly this was a fun day. The students get...

2018 Group 3 Day 3

And yet another great day.  You will likely hear that every day. I will be sure to let you know if that is not the case.  Today also started with worship.  Pretty glorious to sing praises to God with 64 other men.  And after worship, to the projects as today is our...

2018 Group 3 Day 2

What a spectacular day but man am I tired.  Considering the 5 hours of sleep last night and working on construction projects all day today, I am feeling it.  But the blessings today were awesome.   Today as a team, we worked on a new church building, new classrooms at...

2018 Group 3 Day 1

Wow, what a day!  64 men converged on San Antonio TX to begin Day 1 of Group 3.  There were men from 9 states and 2 countries represented in this rag-tag army set to work for God, whatever He would lead us to do.  But really, the day began prior to getting into San...

2018 Group 2 Day 7

Debriefing and send-off: I was able to share a room last night with Pastor Francisco from Matamoros MX.  We were able to communicate pretty well despite the language barrier.  We started talking about our families and showing pictures and before we knew it, it...

2018 Group 2 Day 6

Started the day at Border mission. I was astounded to hear that about 100 pastors a week come to Border mission to get food and supplies tor their Mexican congregations. It was so quiet and empty while we were there, it was hard to imagine the amount if food that...
