Lord willing RMS will be traveling to Campeche, MX in March. We will be working on a parsonage for a pastor of a local Reformed Church. This project was recommended to RMS by Esau Reyes, the MINTS Hispanic Coordinator. (mints.edu). We are excited to add this trip to our 2024 Ministry Development Trips!
The local Reformed Church in Campeche is in need of a new parsonage. The church plans to build it on their grounds. RMS is looking for 10-12 volunteers to join us, both skilled and unskilled laborers. For skilled laborers, we are looking for volunteers with experience in block laying, electrical, plumbing, and carpentry.
