“The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has been engaged in mission in Mexico since 1872. The PC(USA)’s joint ministry with the National Presbyterian Church of Mexico along the border was a major focus of PC(USA) involvement in Mexico, but that official relationship ended in 2011. Our work in the border area between Mexico and the U.S. has been predominantly carried out by Presbyterian Border Ministry in Agua Prieta, Mexico.
Mark Adams and Miriam Maldonado are mission co-workers with the Presbyterian Border Ministry. Mark has served there since 1998. As U.S. coordinator of the binational ministry, Frontera de Cristo, Mark is responsible for the coordination of the six ministry areas of Frontera de Cristo: church development, health, family counseling, the New Hope Community Center, mission education, and the Just Trade Center.
Miriam serves as a liaison of Frontera de Cristo with the Center for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation and Recuperation, DouglaPrieta Trabaja, and the Lirio de los Valles Presbyterian Church. Miriam works with rehabilitation centers, church families, communities, and schools to grow their own food. Together, Mark and Miriam continue a ministry of reconciliation, bringing people together around issues of migration and faith.”
Trinity Presbyterian Church supports this mission because it addresses some of the most difficult issues of our time. Our missionaries are on the frontline of immigration, poverty, and drug abuse. This also allows them to share with Trinity the most wonderful instances of redemption and love.
