George & Jan Waterman - Vamanos Community Ministries - Mexico

Vamanos! 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. Vamanos! 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 GospelGeorge and Jan

Vamanos! Community Ministries was begun in 1997 by George and Jan Waterman to serve the people of Reynosa, Mexico. 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 the city of Reynosa. Today, Camp Piedra Angular (“Cornerstone” in English) has a wonderful all-purpose dining/residence hall with fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. The camp has sleeping facilities for up to 80 persons. There is an equipment storage building, and our own water treatment facility. We have a fully equipped chapel for group meetings and local church services. Additions are begun as God supplies the fund. We operate totally by faith. We make our camp facility available to the Mexican churches in our 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. The future is in His hands.
