Spanish Ministries

The Mission provides services in Spanish to help the fastest growing population in the United States: individuals coming from throughout Latin America, looking for better wages, hope and a new future for their family.

The language barrier makes it difficult for Spanish speakers to find emergency help when they need it. Finding a job or getting help with issues like addictions can seem impossible.

Isolation is another factor. Men and women often face life in the states alone, thousands of miles from their support network of family and friends.

Spanish Ministries provides Spanish speaking men support and assistance as they work through the challenges of living in a foreign land.

"Because the majority of the this community does not speak English, I interpret for them and let them know about everything that is done at the Mission," Ivan Bracamontes says. "Throughout the week many of the guests come to me to talk about their problems and ask for advice. Others come to me for help because they want to use legal and dental services. All this gives me the opportunity as a pastor to share the gospel and pray with the guests."
