Corazón Ministries has continued to provide short-term summer missions for those who desire to develop their understanding of the impact God can have through service-based outreach. During our week-long missions program, we try to enhance and develop a young believer’s faith in God’s command to go out and make disciples of nations. In particular, we focus on serving the Hispanic communities both locally and nationally through the summer mission teams. 

This year we had Christ Community Church youth come in and work with us for a week at Iglesia Centro de Sanidad, on Tucson’s far south side. The sweltering heat and stifling weather conditions presented an immediate challenge to the youth but they embraced the Lord’s work and dove in happily. Throughout the week they were able to help renovate the church grounds with sod and upkeep, as well as paint and clean buildings that were near the church. They had a daily opportunity to pour into the lives of the neighborhood kids through a sports camp and a fun snack held at Iglesia Roca De Salvación. Worship and time together built a sense of God’s love for his children.

The summer mission team also spent time every day in God’s word, so as to encourage their hearts. By the end of the mission’s week–filled with grueling labor, exciting songs, and fantastic sports camp events–the Christ Community Church youth were tired but thankful for the chance to serve the community. 

Please pray that the short-term mission team can continue their walk with Christ in a fruitful and spirit-led way. It can be hard to come down the spiritual mountaintop during a mission week, so we want to be mindful of these young hearts as they continue to foster the beautiful things of God.
