CHURCH LEADER TESTIMONIALS
I have had the opportunity to bring five ministry teams to serve with HHM in Mexico. Each trip has been a blessing to me personally, as well as to the other team members. As a pastor who has led over 20 mission trips to a variety of national and foregin locations, I have found these trips to be the best in providing teams with a variety of practical, faith-building opportunities. Each of the trips I have taken to Mexico has involved construction/maintenance work at the childre's home, Vacation Bible Schools and door-to-door evangelism and food distribution in the nearby village, with many people professing faith in Jesus Christ. I have the utmost confidence in the staff of HHM and Resplandor De Vida. I hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to bring a team to Mexico in the future.

My name is Ralph Jordan. I am a retired Free Methodist Pastor and I would like to recommend Harvest Hands Ministries. The mission trip exceeded my expectations of what I would experience on a short term mission trip. Not only did it open my eyes to the needs of the childrens' home, but also to the area surrounding the home. We witnessed many of the locals coming to Christ. The Mathewson's vision for the children's home is a work in progress that has power to draw you in and enable you to catch the vision as well. Garry has a leadership ability second to none. His way of passing the assignments on to the teams is amazing. Please consider organizing, signing up or just supporting in any way, shape or form. Allow God to give you a transformation in experiencing His work while serving on the next team that heads out.
We at Calvary Chapel Longview, WA, appreciate your ministry to the impoverished children of Juarez, MX, through the Resplandor De Vida Children's Home. It has been a joy and privilege for the last eight years to support your ministry prayerfully, financially and with mission trips by our congregation. Through our mission trips God has really opened the eyes of our team members to the blessings of traveling to other parts of the world where conditions are different.
-Carl M. McCrary, Missions Chairman
Harvest Hands Ministries does exceptional work for the Lord in Juarez, MX. I have known and worked with Garry and Terry Mathewson for thirteen years and have witnessed first hand the blessing of the Lord upon this ministry. They have labored faithfully for years to establish the Resplandor De Vida children's home which serves as a beacon of hope to children and families in the area. They are a delight to work with and consistently demonstrate strong Christian character, integrity and joy. I whole-heartedly endorse HHM. It is a ministry worthy of your financial and prayer support. I also greatly recommend that you send a Christian group from your church or organization to experience a mission trip with them.
