An Indiana congregation sent a teen mission team to partner with a local helping agency in Mexico, helping build a home for a family in need. The family consisted of a woman, her daughter and son-in-law, and their four girls.
The mission team also distributed food to families and provided toys to a local daycare. As stated in their follow-up comments, the mission team members strived to "show the love of Christ to those we came in contact with."
When asked about how Mission Match helped the congregation in their mission giving and awareness, the response from the youth pastor was, "I believe it [Mission Match] did help spur our congregation to more missional giving. I heard from many people who were excited about our upcoming trip, then we shared when we returned and the same people were asking about when we would be going again!"

According to the Mission Match application materials, “We will be building a house for a family in need. We will also be handing out food, water and clothes to many people who are working/living in a landfill. We will be putting on a Vacation Bible School for some of the kids in the area, and sharing the Gospel with those we are serving. We will help supply a daycare food pantry with food and water to give to kids and their families who do not have their basic needs met.”
According to follow-up comments from the congregation, “Our goal was to go to Mexico and meet physical needs of some of the people who live there, and after meeting the physical needs, to share the love of Christ with them. We did accomplish that goal! God’s name was glorified!”
In response to how Mission Match helped the congregation grow in their mission giving and awareness, the follow-up comments from the congregation stated, “… knowing that their contributions would be matched encouraged people to give who normally wouldn’t have given. Then upon hearing the mission team share what God did, they will be encouraged about what God did with their gift. This is an incredible program that allowed us to have a much greater impact than we could have had on our own. Thank you.”
