Del Rio / Ciudad Acuna MDC: Dec. 8-10, 2023 (2359)
Trip Focus: Distribution of Manos de Cristo boxes in Mexico from the OHC Spanish Worship & Westside Campus.
OHC short term mission teams partner with Reaching Across Ministries who have extensive relationships with churches and pastors in the Texas / Mexico border region. We serve alongside Rick Lay and local pastors in the Ciudad Acuna / Del Rio area. One specific ministry that our team will serve is Missionary Hortencia Pichardo who serves underprivileged children through after school ministry programs.
The team will distribute 400 +/- Manos de Cristo boxes collected from the OHC Westside Campus and Mi Tierra Restaurant employees to share God’s love and blessings with these children. In addition, MDC boxes will be shared with OHC Missionary Jose Luis Estrada for his Monclova church community outreach. We will use this opportunity to share the gospel message with these children and their families through skits, songs, and other creative activities.
