IRPC Merida Mexico Missions

IRPC Mérida Mexico Missions

For more then 20 years, IRPC, Indian River Presbyterian Church in Fort Pierce Florida, has been sending week long short term mission teams to Mérida, Mexico located on the Yucatán penisula. Most recently the teams have been consistently working with a new church plant called “Way, Truth and Life” located in the western outskirts of Mérida city ring.


The 2017 team is preparing to return to Mérida during the week of March 13th. A group of fourteen is made up of an equal number of adults and teenagers. In addition to the normal construction projects, this years team plans on holding a sports camp, and to provide Spanish language bibles in a door to door neighborhood out reach in the surrounding community.


During the 2015 trip, a group of 20 worked at the construction of a wall surrounding the church property.  The team also spent one afternoon cleaning up the church property and leveling some large piles of fill.  Group activities included a the preparation and serving of a church wide dinner along the team praying over the church elders and individual members during a special devotional time.


In 2013 IRPC sent a team of 15 who where mostly made up of father/daughter and mother/son combinations! This group worked alongside many members of the local congregation to add a roof onto the second story of the classroom building.  During this groups off time football aka soccer was the groups favorite pastime with multiple USA verse Mexico games being played!
