Being a Bridge
Puente de Amistad means bridge of friendship. We desire first and foremost to lay down our lives as a bridge to help the people living in Tijuana - including orphans, prisoners, drug addicts, and the homeless - draw close to the Savior.
The staff of Puente de Amistad (Puente) minister in the city of Tijuana, Mexico. Puente is a Christ-centered base where visiting groups stay during their time of ministry in Tijuana. The goal of Puente is to provide a safe, affordable base from which others can minister to the people of Tijuana as the Holy Spirit leads them.
Puente serves as a bridge to link visiting groups with local outreaches and churches and the physical needs of the citizens of Tijuana. Our calling is to assist these visiting groups in fulfilling the Great Commission to go and make disciples. Discipleship of visiting team members and local Mexicans occurs in orphanages, in the neighborhood VBS, in men's drug and alcohol rehabs, or while feeding the homeless in downtown Tijuana. We also mobilize teams and individuals for projects such as building homes for the poor who have migrated to Tijuana from other parts of Mexico. Preaching and teaching always accompany the schedule of activities no matter what the project or outreach is.
The staff of Puente is called to mobilize caring Christians (Mexican as well as American) into viable ministries and good works here in Tijuana, to all of Mexico and to the ends of the earth.
