This was a trip to Tapachula Mexico with a team from Grace Community Church in Rincon, GA. We went there to serve with Mission on the Move’s Children’s home there.
This would be my first mission experience serving under my church in partnership with another ministry. The ministry we were going to serve under was Mission on the Move out of Springfield, GA. At the time, they had two childrens homes, one each for boys and girls. Their ministry goes into the prisons to try and take children out of the prison and places them in their homes. I didn’t realize that in the Mexican justice system, children may have to go to prison with the parent(s) if there is nowhere on the outside for them to stay. As you can imagine, many horrible things happen to those children on the inside.
