Mision Emanuel, Mercedes, Texas was originally a CAN-DO partnership project with Laborers for Christ back in the mid 1990's.
Mision Emanuel would like to invite servant groups to help us share the Gospel through VBS and sports camps. We run a week long VBS in the summer in the evenings for the entire family. During the day there are servant projects to do to help improve the church and the homes of families in need.
The servant projects include painting the exterior of the church, sealing the front parking area, rebuilding a storage shed, and making a cement driveway entrance to the warehouse.
Lodging is available at the church which has showers and kitchens. Separate sleeping areas for men and women are provided. Servant teams should bring inflatable mattresses and sleeping bags. Evening meals are prepared by local families and the servant group prepares breakfast and lunch.
