The visitor’s ministry play’s an integral part of the vision and work of Faith Mission. While this is a separate part of the work as far as the Mexican work and churches is concerned, the groups that visit the mission interact directly with that aspect of the ministry while visiting.

God has graciously provided Faith Mission with the ability to accommodate over 85 visitors at a single time as a result of dormitories that were built on as an addition to Faith Mission. Typically, a group of individuals will visit Faith Mission for a period of one week to experience our work here and the workings of God on the mission field. This is always a tremendous experience for those who come.

We have been excited about the amount of youth groups/young people that have made a decision to be a part of the work here while visiting. Great times of fellowship and building of relationships result quite often with those in their own group and other groups that are visiting at the same time.

It is the desire of the Faith Mission Staff and leadership (this of course includes all of the Mexican pastors and leadership associated with Faith Mission) to have God touch each and every life that visit’s the work that God has created here. We are excited about the opportunity to have you come and be a part.
