What is Manos Juntas?

Manos Juntas (Hands Together) is a ministry of the United Methodist Church of Mexico serving the people and churches of Northeast Mexico since 1992 in Reynosa, Rio Bravo, and Nuevo Progreso.
Ministries are located in numerous churches, two medical clinics, a mobile medical clinic, a children’s home, a day-care center, a kinder/elementary school, and a community center. Ministries of Manos Juntas are directed by Willie Berman, a missionary of the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church. www.manosjuntasvimmexico.blogspot.com 

We partner through our prayers, our sharing of our talents through mission teams, and our concrete support.

Manos Juntas Mission Team Opportunity

We are so excited to announce that we are sending out a Mission Team to Manos Juntas on the Texas/Mexico border. The mission will be from March 16-March 19 of 2023 (Thursday-Sunday), and we will be driving down and back. The mission will consist of varying projects (anything from construction to medical to VBS-like work) depending on who the team is made up of and their preference! The trip cost will be approximately $400 depending on the work decided to be done by the mission team. There is a $130 deposit to register.
