Long after drug-related violence caused most U.S. churches and ministries to stop crossing the Mexican border for mission work, Suncreek United Methodist Church of Allen continued.
But now even Suncreek has canceled a house-building trip to the Ciudad Juarez area. The five-member group was set to leave Thursday and return Jan. 31.
“I’m heartbroken,” said Janet Hunt, the church’s director of community ministries and trip leader.
Suncreek and a handful of other UMC churches in North Texas work with Proyecto Abrigo, a ministry in a suburb just outside Ciudad Juarez.
The ministry leader, the Rev. Jose Luis Portillo, called Hunt Saturday night and advised against coming.
