SOUTH OF THE BORDER
As you cross the international bridge over the Rio Grande River, you notice a sign with a line right down the middle. One side says, “United States,” and the other says, “Mexico.”
In only a few miles, you have entered a new and exciting world. The road narrows, and you see an array of cambios, small stands where you can exchange your American money for pesos. Mariachi music blares as you pass small taco or churro stands, their beckoning aromas wafting through the air. Honking horns and Spanish street signs highlight the obvious: You’re not in Kansas (or Oklahoma, Indiana or anywhere in the U.S.) anymore.
You pause a moment to realize you are now an international missionary. Working with Pastor Nicolas Alba and Agape Church, your team will take the Good News of Jesus Christ to soccer fields, flea markets, public squares, and prisons. Many Awe Star missionaries—even the former president of Awe Star—began their missions adventures in this very place.
After you experience the passion of the Mexican church for her own people, your life will never be the same. Working side by side with students from this beautiful but broken land, you’ll fall in love with them, their country, and their heart to share the gospel.
What are your plans for Christmas and/or Spring Break?
