Forest Lake Presbyterian has supported the work of PC(USA) mission co-workers Mark Adams and his wife Miriam Maldonado Escobar for many years. We are excited to offer a mission trip to the Agua Prieta, Mexico and Douglas, AZ border to experience the work of their ministry, Frontera de Cristo first hand. The goals of this mission immersion experience include forming relationships with our Mexican brothers and sisters, building understanding of spiritual, political and economic connections across borders and understanding the realities of life on the border.  There is no construction work involved in this trip. If you are interested in going on this trip contact Jodibeckham@flpc.org. Can't go, but want to support this trip? Please pray for us and consider a donation to our Church Mission Trip fund. Thank you for supporting the Service and Benevolence on Forest Lake Presbyterian!
