There is no Jew or Greek, Mexican or American as Christians, we are all one in Christ Jesus. As one, the IMB is partnering with Mexican brothers and sisters to assist refugees backlogged along the northern and southern borders of Mexico — Christ’s body serving those fleeing from severe violence, hopeless poverty, and social instability. Your gift will meet these refugees in their crisis, offering them food, shelter, medical care, safety, hope, and the gospel. You can do this by giving and also going to the borders to lend a hand.
People are most open to the gospel during crises and transitions. Those pressed on Mexico’s borders are a hungry, homeless, scared, searching people with the work-ethic and courage to tackle the thousand-mile journey toward peace. However, they are presently devoid of resources and preyed upon by criminals. Give today to show the love of Christ in tangible ways that meet real needs. You may give through this web page. To learn more about opportunities to go, please contact (804) 219-1950. Church, this is our time. Our neighbors need us!
Andean peaks, Mayan ruins, Amazonian rainforest, Patagonian glaciers, and Caribbean white-sand beaches: South America is a land of exploration and diversity that commands your attention and captivates your senses. The people of Latin America and the Caribbean are known for their lively spirit. South America is home to thirteen of the world’s 100 most populous cities and these urban dwellers face challenges such as poverty, long work days, addictions, and broken families.
The Americas have a rich heritage of Christian missions, yet more than 550 million people here are living without Jesus. Indigenous cultures have intermixed so thoroughly with Christian beliefs that many traditional churches are void of any knowledge of the gospel. Of the 1003 people groups in the Americas, 178 are unreached and unengaged.
Ask God to give wisdom to IMB missionaries as they disciple local believers, develop leaders, and engage in human needs ministries to draw people to Christ.
