Founders of Border Missions

It was in 1950 that Harold and Katherine Morgan received a vision for this missionary endeavor when they first came to the Rio Grande Valley while doing evangelistic ministry. They witnessed the hunger for the gospel amongst those Mexican nationals who were in the labor camps of the brasero program. God called them to establish a mission station in accordance with Isaiah 58:6-7.

Without sponsors of any kind and without any outside help, they had to totally rely upon God to obey his call. God honored their faith and Border Missions first opened in December, 1956.

Mexico was truly a land of darkness where idols were worshiped. There were many who were very poor who had no help from the government and precious little help from any charity. Mexico was predominately a Catholic nation and there existed restrictions in regards to sharing the gospel. Thus, Border Missions was built in the United States - one mile from the border.

The scripture in Isaiah depicts the bait that draws the people from Old Mexico to the mission. We feed and clothe them in order to reach them for God. Each time they come, they attend an evangelistic service in which the gospel is given in Spanish under the power of the Holy Spirit. It is mainly Mexican ministers who deliver the messages. We see many come forward for salvation in each service. Truly the harvest is ripe and ready for reaping.

Border Missions has grown throughout the years in accordance with the increased attendance. In fact, seven enlargements have been necessary.

On May 17, 2005, Rev. Mrs. H.A. Morgan was laid to rest beside her husband, Rev. Harold Morgan who had preceded her in death by 42 years. They are interred at the Roselawn Cemetery, McAllen, Tx. Rev. Warren J. Piersol of Corpus Christi officiated. A celebration of her life was held at the Border Missions tabernacle in Hidalgo beforehand. Reverend Mrs. Morgan was remembered for her unfailing dedication to the service of the Mexican people for 48 years. Included in the service was a video which depicted her work throughout those years and also an excerpt from a message which she had delivered on her radio ministry which she had maintained on KCTA radio station for many years.
