Christians Stay on Mission in Mexico Despite Drug War

| June 8, 2011

Despite a steady news media stream of stories on drug cartel violence and killings in Mexico over the last few years, hundreds of Christians living in Southern California have maintained their dedication to weekend mission trips south of the border.

Their goal – to minister and provide basic necessities to the destitute in northern Baja.

However, Orange County resident Isabel Monje, who has been involved with Christian ministry and outreaches in Mexico for more than 22 years, said the media’s focus on the criminal element has lowered the number of groups and individuals taking trips south of the border during the last four years.

While some have scaled down or stopped their efforts, she has throttled up her outreach in the Baja area. Her organization, Transformación Mundial, along with other Christian groups, will host three vacation Bible studies for children in Rosarito and Tijuana this summer.
