Hosting a Mission Team

We praise God for the opportunity He gave us to host and facilitate a mission team this summer. We were so blessed to have a team of 23 people from Parkview Baptist Church in Decatur, Alabama come spend a week doing a mission trip here in Los Fresnos with us. They split into two teams while they were here and did so much to reach our community for Christ and helped with projects at our church too. 

They hosted a morning and afternoon VBS in 2 locations, did door-to-door evangelism, pulled up all the carpet in our children’s ministry area, painted 2 of the children’s ministry classrooms, trimmed trees on the church grounds, built shelving in the church garage, organized the Hands & Feet Ministry storage area, and did outreach at the local skate park each evening. 

They were all smiles and full of excitement every day and they willingly walked through every open door to be His hands and feet and serve our community during their time here. We loved getting to know these team members and they quickly became dear friends to us.  We were sad when their week was up and they headed back to Alabama.  We praise God for their dedication, hard work, and desire to come alongside us to help the gospel go forth in this area.
