Mexican and U.S. Presbyterians look to ‘bridge the past and the future’ of border outreach

Presbyterians met in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, in November to consider the future of Presbyterian Border Region Outreach (PBRO). The relationship between the Mexico and Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denominations ended, major financial support had been dwindling for years, and communications between the six border ministry sites had become slack. On the surface, it was remarkable that so many still active in the border ministry were determined to travel as much as a thousand miles to meet on behalf of an organization that appeared to be in its final days.
