Without the help of the wonderful churches and individuals who have sacrificed time and finances to come here and partner with us, none of this would have been possible.

Construction teams still needed in Mexico.
Please pray about these opportunities and if God leads you to help in some way, please contact us. Whether you are an experienced construction team or considering a first-time missions trip, we will do our best to fit your abilities and resources with the projects here in order to further the Gospel and bless the people of Mexico. Thank you for your interest in this ministry and may God bless your efforts to reach the world for Jesus.
A large part of the ministry here in Mexico is the construction of new churches and the expansion and renovation of existing structures. US teams from all over the country have joined us in the construction of churches and children’s centers in various cities and towns throughout the Baja Peninsula.
Centro Cristiano Nuevo Amanacer - Colonia Matamoros, Tijuana
In June 2000, we broke ground for a new church in Colonia Matamoros, which was a new colonia in Tijuana at that time. With the help of 10 incredible MAPS teams, the building was completed in November 2001. The following teams completed this great church in 18 months:
June 2000 - Trinity Assembly from Nicholson, PA
July 2000 - Praise Assembly from North Versailles, PA
Sept 2000 - Living Waters Chapel from Lebanon, PA
Feb 2001 - Westview Church, Palmdale, CA
Mar 2001 - Church on the Terrace from Ogden, UT
April 2001 - Living Waters Chapel from Lebanon, PA
May 2001 - Westview Church, Palmdale, CA
Sept 2001 - Palomar Heights Assembly from San Marcos, CA
Nov 2001 - Faith Christian Center from Bend, OR
In the last 9 years, there have been many transitions in the church and the area around the church has grown tremendously. In October of 2008, we were blessed with the arrival of Pastor Bonifacio to the church. With Pastor Boni has come new life and energy and in just the few short months since his arrival the church has grown and the congregation is infused with a new enthusiasm for service and outreach. The church was badly in need of repair. Our plan is to help this new pastor restore the church building and bring a new face to the ministry in this area.

Mision Ebenezer Feeding Center - Colonia Altiplano, Tijuiana, Mexico
In a dusty area on the outskirts of Tijuana, stands Mision Ebenezer, a little church who is reaching out to the children of their community. Pastor Martin and his wife Rosario started this church 10 years ago and, from the beginning, their vision has been to reach out to the children. It was not long before they realized that the children in this area had many needs, one of which was nourishing food. For this reason, they began a program of feeding the children of the community from their home kitchen and the church.
They have continued feeding the children in this way through the years, but their dream is for a greater outreach to the children. They also began a weekly children's program in an even poorer area and feed those children as well. Their heart is to not only continue with their weekly program for the children, but to also be able to feed the children a hot meal every day.
Pastor Martin's vision is to have a permanent place to feed the children and to be able to minister to them in all areas of their lives. For years they have been working toward that goal. A couple of years ago, the church bought the lot adjacent to the little church and have worked hard to pay it off. This is the beginning of Pastor Martin's dream being fulfilled. Our dream is to help him with his dream. June 2016, we broke ground for the foundation of the new center. Praise God!

Pastors Martin Salas & Rosario
Pastors Ricardo and Monica have been working in the Camino Verde area of Tijuana for 15 years. They were led to accept the position as pastors of an old church in a very poor area of Tijuana. No other pastors were willing to go to this church because of its location and its history. However, Pastor Ricardo believed that God was calling them to this place. The struggle has been long, but the pastors are hard workers, with a love of God that reaches beyond what the community had seen in the past.
In 2015, the church realized that they could not continue patching up the old church building, and began praying for God's provision to build a church. Without any outside help, the congregation began digging inside the old church to construct the columns that would be necessary to support a new church. The plan is to build a new church over the existing church building, as there is no other land on which to build.
Since God began leading us to help this pastor, we have been inspired by what we have seen. The people of the church, including the women and teens, show up weekly to work on their church. Some evenings they work until 11:00 pm to finish work on one of the columns. Even before we were able to provide any teams to help with the work, the people provided all of the labor that was needed. It is amazing to see what they have been able to accomplish with the materials that God is providing for them. We thank God for the opportunity to join hands with these wonderful pastors to build a new church for the Kingdom of God.
