Special Needs Trip

Kenya Special Needs

Kenya Special Needs Team
March 2 - 14, 2018

Share your love for others and join Parkview as we partner with Missions of Hope International (MOHi) to spread the love of Christ to individuals with special needs living in the Mathare Valley in Nairobi, Kenya.

No specialized skills or credentials necessary, just a desire to serve others. On this trip, the team will lead students of MOHi in VBS, visit homes of individuals with special needs within the community, host a day of special games for the school children, and assist in a light service project. It’s a great opportunity to see how the special needs community of the Mathare Valley has changed since the first special needs team visited 5 years ago!

Mexico 2018
Cancun Mission Trip

Cancun, Mexico 2018

Vida Nueva Cancun Church Plant
January 21-28, 2018

The Parkview team will be working with Vida Nueva Ministry (VNM) to continue with construction projects at the church plant in the Cancun area, several blocks inland from the tourist hotels.

Jair and Norma Castillo have worked in Piedras Negras since 1974 upon Jair's graduation from Dallas Christian College.  After seeing the desperate conditions of the Ejido village children, God lead them to start a ministry to help break the vicious cycle of poverty and self abandonment in which children lived. This happened at the end of 1987 when, with God’s help through the team effort of key individuals, VNM was created.

VNM directs such ministries as food distribution, health care, child care, education, worship, recreation, vocational skills training, church planting, and church leadership training programs. All of these programs serve to connect people with Christ so that He can bring them hope and freedom from the vicious cycle of poverty and spiritual emptiness from which many suffer.
