Hebron USA will host six mission teams in Chiapas during the spring and summer of 2016 from churches across the country. All teams will fly into the airport in Tuxtla Gutierrez, the capital of Chiapas and then travel to their destination. The teams will be met on the ground by Hebron President and in-country summer trip coordinator Randy Duvall. The teams will be working with Pastor Pablo Feliciano and his wife Jan, long-time missionaries with the Presbyterian Church and servants to the Tzeltal people of Chiapas.
There are two types of trips planned for the summer of 2016: Medical and construction. The medical teams will be working alongside Dr. Gerado Cruz Gomez, the medical director of Clinica Tzeltal Manos de Cristo providing care to the Tzeltal people in and around Ocosingo, Chiapas. The construction teams will be assisting the members of the local Presbyterian churches with construction projects approved by the local church, the Tzeltal Synod and Hebron USA.
Costs for 2016 are $500 plus airfare.
