(We will be able to accomodate parents here on campus if we know in advance that you will be staying over night.) This session will include a question/answer format to pdate parents on any pressing matters.

Saturday will be filled with preparations. Everythign you need to know will be covered Saturday morning: what to say / how to say it, what to do / what not to do, etc.

The planned departure is 2:00 p.m. Saturday. We hope to arrive at the vorder around 8:00 p.m. Sunday. We will be meet by Mario Calderon of Mexican Border Christian Ministries. He will assist us across the border, get us situated at the church in Guillen Colony of Piedras Negras, and work with us throughout the week. Our days will be divided between worship services, door to door evangelism, working with orphanages, construction, touring the area, visiting local markets, and interacting with the Mexican people - a continuous role!

We plan to return during the wee-hours of Sunday, June 14. At 9:00 a.m., we will close our program with an informal worship service conducted by all the members of the team. Parents and friends are urged to attend. We will conclude by 10:00, giving you time to worship with any of our local congregations or get an early start on your return home.
