Area churches hoping to increase mission trips to Mexico

| March 27, 2011

AMARILLO, TX – As mission trips to Mexico continue to decline, area churches are hoping to shatter any misconceptions on traveling across the border.

For years Westminster Presbyterian and Pinnacle Community Church have traveled to Mexico to build homes for people living in poverty through an organization called Casas por Cristo.

However, because of the recent violence plaguing border cities many church missions are backing out. According to Casas por Cristo about three years ago there were building an average of 400 homes each year.

Last year they dropped to only 200.
