CrossRoads Missions Mexico intends to transform the city of Piedras Negras, Mexico, with the love and compassion of Christ through working alongside and empowering already-existing ministries by providing encouragement, home ownership opportunities, Christian education, medical clinics, and youth programming.
Piedras Negras is at the northern border of the state of Coahuila in Mexico. It sits across the Rio Grande from Eagle Pass, Texas, and is about 150 miles southwest of San Antonio. The city's population is around 250,000 and continues to grow. Due to its border location, the city is significantly influenced by the U.S. in areas such as religion, media, and even language.

Medical Mission - Piedras Negras, Mexico
With the help of Mexican translators and pastors, the medical teams set up clinics in the outlying areas of the community where medical attention is limited or absent. The medical clinics are based on Biblical holistic medical care and focus to build up disadvantaged individuals and communities by incorporating health care, evangelism, medicine, and health education into their daily lifestyles. A team of doctors, nurses, and students are needed to conduct clinics in these communities. It is a great hands-on experience for nurses, physician assistants, and medical students. Non-medical participants are also welcome and can be used according to their gifts and abilities as well as add support to our medical team.
