Joshua's Crossing has a supporting and ministry relationship with Pastor Nemius Ruiz in Orizaba, Veracruz, Mexico. While 80% of the Mexican people are nominally Catholic, less than 12% are practicing Christians. Pastor Nemius' church has made incredible efforts to reach the lost of Mexico by offering a church home for all who are searching. Every summer, a team from Joshua's Crossing travels to Orizaba to assist the church in spreading the gospel on the city streets, providing manual labor for construction projects, and facilitating the yearly Vacation Bible School program, where over 400 children learn about the good news of Jesus.

Operation Christmas Child
In the Christmas season of 2017, Joshua's Crossing partnered with Samaritan's Purse to donate over 200 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Having been carefully planned, personalized, and packaged by JC Partners, the boxes were then sent to children in impoverished nations along with a presentation of the Gospel. These shoeboxes are tangible representations of God's Love and open the door of Salvation to thousands of kids each year!
A few ways to get involved this year include donating items for packing, donating funds for shipping fees, packing your own box for shipping, or you can attend our annual Packing Party in the Fall. As we get closer to the Christmas season, be on the lookout for more information here and at Joshua's Crossing on Sundays!
