Rio Bravo 2020

The Northwest District invites you to join our Rio Bravo, Mexico mission team in service to the people of Tamaulipas, Mexico.  Our teams will travel to the Manos Juntas mission in Rio Bravo for various ministries.  VIM team 20-120 will be led by Rev. Jim Benfer for a week of mission engagement May 31 to June 6, 2020.


Our past missions have concentrated on construction, medical clinics, VBS, evangelism, elementary book distributions, orphanage ministry and sewing.  We have a place for all ages on our teams.  If you or your church have and interest, please contact Rev. Benfer as soon as possible, as fundraising can drastically reduce the price of the mission.  Cost for the week in mission is $575 per person, not including travel to and from McAllen, TX.  We encourage your church to fundraise to help scholarship those who may have interest, but cannot afford the cost.


A valid U.S. passport is required to cross the border.  For more information or to receive team member forms you may contact the numbers below.  If you would like to view a slideshow of past trips, please follow these links to Youtube:
