Juntos Servimos Ministry - Mexico
Juntos Servimos, our ministry partner since 1999, helps poor families in the border town of Matamoros, Mexico transform their community through improved health, education and shelter. They are especially involved in the care of the disabled, the ill, and the abandoned in these communities.
First Methodist has provided over 1500 wheelchairs and countless crutches, walkers, medical supplies, and disability equipment to members of the community. Our mission teams provide therapeutic assistance, fellowship, and needed facility repairs and construction. Wheelchairs are acquired through our partnership with Joni and friends, global disabilities ministry. Church volunteers helped to construct Casa Bugambilia, the refuge center that cares for critically ill people who have no others means for care.
Casa De Comunion Y Bendicion
Casa is our sister church in the Matamoros community. Through a multi-year partnership with the local congregation, we helped build the current worship facility. It is a blessing to worship with this congregation when we are in the Matamoros area.

Mexico Methodist Seminary Scholarships
First Methodist is committed to building the capacity of the church in Mexico in its mission to reach others for Christ. For that reason, we provide scholarships to seminary students through the Juan Wesley Seminario in Monterrey, Mexico. Our first scholarship recipient, Pastor Cesar Gonzales Cruz has completed his seminary studies and is now serving in a local church in Monterrey.
The current scholarship recipient, Juan Noé Niño Ramos shared the following introduction.
Please pray for Pastor Juan and for all those who serve in the Mexico Methodist Church.
