¡Vámonos! Community Ministries was begun in 1997 by George and Jan Waterman to serve the people of Reynosa, Mexico. Having previously labored as missionaries with World Servants in Mexico, they discerned God’s calling to devote their energies in a different direction of ministry. The vision soon became a reality as God miraculously provided the beautiful rural land (donated by a Mexican pastor) where the camp is situated, about 15 miles outside of the city of Reynosa. Today, Camp Piedra Angular (“Cornerstone” in English) has been completed to provide a meeting place for Mexican church groups, as well as food and lodging for American short-term mission teams. The entire construction was financed by the generous donations from American churches and individuals. ¡Vámonos! Community Ministries operates totally by faith.
¡Vámonos! means “let’s go!” in Spanish. In Matthew 28:19 Christ commands his followers to go into all the world to share the message of his saving grace. The people of Reynosa have many needs, both material and physical, but their primary need— like people the world over— is to know that God loves them. ¡Vámonos! Community Ministries seeks to meet the needs of the whole person, and the whole community, through practical work projects and person-to-person ministry opportunities for sharing the Gospel.
The camp facility is made available to the Mexican churches in the area to hold pastors leadership meetings, training sessions, women’s retreats, banquets, and special outings. Our goal is to proclaim Christ in both word and deed. Our desire is to serve Christ, His church, and the Mexican community in which He has planted us in. The future is in His hands. Let’s go
