If this is your first missions trip you're in for a great time! However, the following are essentials:

1. Patience: The Lord is going to stretch you on this trip.
2. Openness...to whatever God's Plan is.
3. Passport
4. Bible
5. Towel & Toiletries
6. Pillow & Sleeping bag
7. Daypack with hand wipes/hand sanitizer, roll of toilet paper, bottled water, personal snacks, and heavy gloves (if you have them).




If you prefer to spend the night on the Texas side of the border, or for large groups and first timers, we recommend Laredo Stepping Stone Missions Camp. They have been a great partner with Regalos de Amor for many years.

Plan to bring your own linens, though they can provide linens and meals at additional costs, if arrangements are made ahead of time. 

Please see their website for more information: http://www.laredosteppingstone.com/ Please make all your reservations right on their site.


Many of our returning teams prefer to staying at the Hoilday Inn Express,overlooking the Rio Grande and USA, and easy access from Bridge II (end of I-35). Nice rooms at a reasonable price. Some photos are available at this link: http://www.ihg.com/holidayinnexpress/hotels/us/en/nuevo-laredo/nldbc/hoteldetail/photos-tours. Call or email us at the above number for more information and/or discounted prices.


If you are interested in this option, please call Pastor Tony at (325) 212-0775





  We encourage you to start collecting shoebox items now.  November will be here before you know it!  Individual churches will have their own collection deadlines; however, we would like to have all boxes in Laredo, at Laredo Stepping Stone Missions Camp, PRIOR to Thanksgiving (Preferably by November 21st, if at all possible...unless you are planning to come join us for our Day-After-Thanksgiving packing event!) 



(To be set-up)




Laredo, Texas; Laredo Stepping Stone Missions Camp

Thursday, November 24 - Saturday, November 26th

Join us for a special Thanksgiving feast on Thursday, and for fun and fellowship as we prepare and organize hundreds of shoe boxes on Friday and Saturday...for distribution in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, the following three weekends.

This is a great way to be introduced to missions work while staying in Texas (especially for families)...although a trip across the border will likely be available on Saturday if you're interested.

If you can only come for part of the time, you're invited to join in on the fun, too!  We would love to have you come serve with us.

If you plan to join the FUN for Thanksgiving Dinner, please contact LISA KOMANIECKI (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to make housing and dinner reservations and to sign up to bring a dish or two.
