On Wednesday, 3/25, our team from WRCC worked with members of the Women’s Ministry at Calvary Baptist Church and their pastor Chad Mason to create 600 gift bags for the Border Patrol officers stationed in McCallen, TX. WRCC provided 6 cookies from a local bakery, a stick of Chap Stick and a WRCC mission team member contributed Gatorade. Calvary Baptist contributed a Bible (camoflauge cover) and a devotional book on Psalm 91 These bags were boxed up and taken to the Rio Grande Border Patrol in McAllen, TX. The Border Patrol has been caught in the middle of this unfortunate refugee situation and rightly or wrongly has had several protests launched against them. Pastor Chad Mason stated that just last year their church was told to only leave the gift boxes at the door – no other communication. The Lord intervened for us this year and we were able to deliver the gift bags in person to the individual officers. The officers were all very excited and grateful, not only for the gift bags, but that someone was willing to understand the extreme dangers they are facing under moral and political conditions. After delivery, the mission team was able to sit in on the Border Patrol doing an interview of Chad Mason, Phil Heller, and the Border Patrol chaplain. The Border Patrol commanders wanted to capture this message so that it can be shared with all officers (as some were in the field). Afterword, the Border Patrol’s chaplain was thrilled to discover the book on Psalms that was included in the gift bags. He had wanted to distribute that very book for some time! Yes our glorious Lord is always at work! God orchestrated a wonderful moment to minister to men and women who are protecting our country and providing dignity and care to those they are encountering during their work.
