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,
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.

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
