The South Texas Mission Team worshipped at Calvary Baptist Church, a great congregation that has been active at ministering in the Rio Grande Valley for many years. After the service, the team had lunch with several members of the mission ministry team that is spearheading the ministry efforts to refugees. It was an eye opening/mind blowing experience to hear all of the need and multilayered darkness related to the border crisis.
The team then traveled to a park near the border where people gathered on both sides of the Rio Grande River enjoying picnics and the warm weather, while border patrol heavily patrolled the water separating both sides. The team concluded the day with a tour/orientation at the South Texas Refugee Center where they will begin ministering on Monday.
