Summer Service 2021

Cactus

Hola, we’re the 2021 NWMC Summer Service Team! (Team bios are here. If you don’t know what Summer Service is, you can start here.)

Our journey began in 2019 with a destination of Southeast Asia. As the world navigated the oncoming pandemic together, waited to see what would come with open hands.

This team of eight (six members and two leaders) has grown with the addition of three new members, and our destination has transitioned to the Southwest sister cities of Agua Prieta, Sonora, and Douglas, Arizona with Frontera de Cristo Ministries. Frontera de Cristo is a Presbyterian border ministry and one of five binational ministry sites of Presbyterian Border Region Outreach. They work with churches, presbyteries, and secular organizations on both sides of the border to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.

We leave for our trip in a little over a week! Summer Service will look different this year as we take on the responsibility of keeping ourselves and those around us safe and healthy, but we are so looking forward to learning, growing, and sharing God’s love with all whom we meet. We’ll be able to post on social media a bit too, so feel free to follow team members or NWMC’s account to follow us as we go!
