Mision De Candelilla
Mision De Candelilla presents the gospel through acts of love. These acts include medical clinics held twice each year in nine small villages (ejidos) in northwestern Coahuila and northeastern Chihuahua. All services and medications are provided free of charge. All children receive an annual supply of chewable vitamins. After each clinic, the team facilitates bilingual worship services – usually in the local Baptist Church. While we preach the gospel to the local people, we also equip them to share it with others. In addition to medical clinics, youth and adults perform service projects and make Christmas trips. All teams participate in morning devotions. Our goal is to send volunteers back home to their local church better equipped to serve on this side of the border as well. Our motto is: Changing lives on both sides of the border.
Wordsower (South Africa)
Provides a safe home for orphans who are unable to live at the Restoring Hope Village.
