Home for Daria

"Home In A Week" - for Ms. Daria Vera

April 17th - 25th, 2017

Daria Vera was active in the La Marcha in 1966 and has continued to be an advocate for workers rights.  Bishop Joel Martinez became aware of the dilapidated condition of Senora Vera’s home and initiated an effort to help her.  The plan is to tear down the dilapidated part of her home and build a 24’x24’ one bedroom home that will last her for years to come.

 If you would like to be part of the United Methodist Team to build this home near Rio Grande City, one or more days.  For more information from Rev. Mark Porterfield, Canyon Lake First UMC, who is coordinating this home build.and to sign up please:

“Home in a Week” is a 501C.3 non-profit organization.

 Whether or not you are able to assist in the build of this project

please keep Ms. Vera and those serving in your prayers.

School Supplies

 School Supply & Backpack Ministry

This school year our church family was blessed to prepare 14 Teacher Supply boxes for the teachers at Escandon and Jackson Elementary Schools of the MISD.  These went to each of the 7 grade levels at each school.  Also, because of a grant from the El Valle District of the UMC, our YOUTH were able to assemble 72 backpacks filled with school supplies to share with children in need in surrounding areas.  We partnered with ARISE, Inc. to get these backpacks to children who needed them to start this school year.  PRAISE GOD for this opportunity to serve!!!
