Mission team goes to Mexico

June 08, 2006

A group of Broadfording Christian Academy high school students and adults traveled to Chihuahua, Mexico, in March to minister to the poverty-stricken children there.

The BCA mission team paired with Christian Outreach International, a larger missionary group that has been working with the people of Chihuahua for several years. The mission teams prepared and served meals, and held a mini-Vacation Bible School for the children.

A school, training center and church are being built to supply more seating so more children in Chihuahua can attend church and be served meals.

This addition is being provided in part by Broadfording Christian Academy. The students at BCA raised $1,103 during Spirit Week in February to help with the project.

"The Chihuahua children are amazing," said Kathy McKinney, mission leader for BCA. "They live in dire poverty, smiling and laughing all the time. They loved us without words - wrapping themselves around our hearts. These children greatly impacted our BCA kids. Our students will have wonderful memories as they remember their time in Chihuahua."
