Mission Statement and Vision for Better Together In Christ
San Felipe, BC, Mexico
Many people live in poverty all around the world and San Felipe, BC, Mexico, is no exception. In 2006, a small group of North Americans from the US, Canada and Mexico, residing in the San Felipe area, felt that God was leading them to reach out to others. During a study developed by Rick Warren, entitled “Forty Days of Community,” the group sensed that God was challenging them to serve those less fortunate. This group formed what is now known as “Better Together in Christ”. Mission Statement – The mission of Better Together is threefold:
- Sharing some of what God has given to us by providing food, medicine, and clothing to the elderly of San Felipe according to their needs.
- Improving the living conditions of these elderly by building, repairing, or creating structures for them, as needed.
- Offering spiritual support by praying with them and for them.
Note: Although Better Together is a Christian organization, there is no religious prerequisite for those receiving our assistance or for those wishing to become a part of our group. Our Purpose – Our purpose is to seek out, by recommendation or observation, the elderly that have genuine needs. These needs are presented to the group for consideration, and the group then develops a plan to address those needs. Our Objective – Our objective is to minister to and help people as God leads us. Our Goal – The goal of Better Together is to expand, in order to help an even greater number of elderly in San Felipe, and to continue to provide for the elderly with needs, without losing the personal touch that gives members of the group a reason to continue. Through our group’s personal contributions, and with the financial help of local service organizations, Better Together has been able to provide material goods and building improvements for the elderly. Better Together has gained respect in the community and is becoming known and trusted as a credible entity for providing unselfish and much needed aid to the elderly population of San Felipe. Those interested in joining Better Together need only to see the gratitude from the elderly people we serve and to hear of the miracles we have witnessed to understand why we love what we do.
