Short Term Mission Opportunities

Tarahumara (Mexico)

Plans continue for our March 8-17, 2020 Mexico Missions Trip. While the Christmas season occupies most of our thinking, now is a good time to make your plan to come on our trip.

We have teams or individuals coming from Greybull, Riverton, Rapid City, and Helena for certain and many others thinking about it.

We will have a wide variety of projects so that everyone will be included in meaningful activities.

  • Conduct a Pastors/wives’ retreat with Bible Teaching and Child Care.
  • Conduct a Basketball camp for about 50-60 kids.
  • Conduct Bible Clubs in the neighboring community(s).
  • Do 2 construction projects:  install an underground water tank to provide continuous water to the parsonage at Pena Blanco and an open air pole barn at Rio Chico to protect equipment from the sun.
  • General maintenance/repair/cleaning around the Rio Chico mission base.
  • Prepare the Greenhouse, orchard, and “gardens” for the upcoming season.
  • First Aid clinic
  • Worship services and Fiesta on Sunday. 

The word from Tomas and Brenda is that safety is about the same as usual. They do their best to direct us into places they deem safe. Certainly this is an area of vigilance and prayer support.

Everyone arrives at their own cost in El Paso on Sunday (3-8). We stay at the Micro-tel Inn. Tomas picks us up on Monday (3-9) and transports us to Rio Chico where we stay the week, traveling to the various ministry areas. On Monday (3-16) we are returned to El Paso. Everyone leaves on Tuesday (3-17) for their return home.

In addition to our travel costs to El Paso, there is a cost of $600 to cover our Motel and in-Mexico costs. This payment should be sent to Helena Alliance Church, 1400 Stuart, Helena, MT 59601. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email anytime.

It would be a great blessing to have you come!
