Mexico Missions

The Mission Mexico group started over ten years ago building new sites for congregation all over Mexico. The Richardson Family has been involved in this work since that time. The original group started with just 15 people from Arkansas, Iowa and TX. The Brown Trail church of Christ in TX and the Davis City church of Christ in IA began the support work under the direction of Rick Owens. Since that time the group has grown to more than 50 Christians from churches of Christ in Texas, Kansas, Tennessee, Ohio, Missouri, and Iowa.

In 2007 the group is embarking on another change that will help to ensure that we meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the congregations we support. Late last year the Richardson’s, from the Davis City church of Christ, and the Manchester’s, from the Brown Trail congregation meet with Wayne Brewer of the Mabelvale church of Christ in Arkansas. They felt a strong need to get more one-on-one with the local work by participating in Bible classes and meetings. With immense help of Wayne Brewer they began searching for a congregation and opportunity that would enable a Gospel campaign during the same time as the building team.

The Mission Mexico trip 2007 will took us to congregations in Ciudad Victoria where we shared our love and passion for Christ and encouraged one another.

It’s still hard to believe that in just one week the site went from bare ground to a complete floo
