Zapata and La Mision

Zapata Church

A mission team of twenty-five people from Alvaton, KY, Glasgow, KY, Scottsville, KY, Mabelvale, AR, and Lamoni, IA.visited the church in Zapata the week of June 8-15,

.

The mission team with the Zapata congregation held a meeting with Brother Hector Garcia (Reynosa, Mexico)  preaching, Brother Wayne Brewer  (Mabelvale, AR) teaching adults, various teachers for the teens, and a Vacation Bible School for the children taught by Elizabeth Reyes and Adriana Ramirez of Ensenada and Tijuana. Home visits, food distribution, Bible studies, and clothes distribution were part of the benevolence work for the week.


Construction at the new property included modifying existing structures for church use including painting, plumbing, electrical, installation of windows and doors, a partial roof replacement, and installation of a clean water tank for the kitchen. This was completed on the two-room house that is on the corner of the property. Future work is to build the baños and renovate the covered area of the structure for church worship and activities until a new church building is built on the opposite corner of the property.

 




La Mision

A group from Vaughn Park came to worship and work in La Mision Church. They spend Sunday morning at church and after that they went by the local elementary school to take a look at the room that needed a new ceiling put in. They thought they were going to be repairing a roof, so installing a ceiling was a bigger job than they anticipated but they did it and the children that meet in that classroom were very grateful. 

 

The things they accomplished in addition to the ceiling were: 

Donning yellow vests and walking up and down the main road picking up trash 

Making a spaghetti lunch for the local police and fire stations, as well as sending food to some people in the community. Cleaning the area behind the church building as well as weeding and cleaning outside the church fence. Grilling about 175 hot dogs to serve at the soccer clinic that they held at a park down the street.  About 50 children came. 

They also served fruit and bottled water.  Leftover hot dogs were taken to some families in the community. Making about 200 tuna sandwiches that were delivered to field workers and families living in that area along with bottles of water and chips. They also delivered cards that children from Vaughn Park had made for people in Mexico. 

One morning, the moms of some of the school children had prepared a breakfast for the group. They were very grateful with the work at their school. 




They had a great trip. they look forward to being back again!
