Help Texas Baptists Serve at the Border

Help Texas Baptists Serve at the Border 

Pack a Hygiene Kit 

In response to the current situation along the Texas and Mexico border, Texas Baptists River Ministry missionaries and border churches need your support. At a Respite Center in the Rio Grande Valley, they are now serving well over 150 people daily. At a detention center in Nuevo Laredo, Texas Baptists churches are helping to feed 300 deportees a day. 

The call has been given from the border for prayer, supplies, and help. Will you answer? 

During the month of September we are asking you to create and bring at least one hygiene kit to Hillcrest Church, using the instructions below. We will collect these kits and deliver them to the border, where they will be used by Texas Baptist churches and ministry centers that are serving people in the name of Jesus. 

Want to donate items but cannot make a whole kit?
You can help our 3 & 4 year old Sunday School class learn about giving and missions as they create kits with the items you provide!
