Shawn, Carla and Maverick Estes along with Madison and her husband Eliseo Arreguin

The Estes family moved from South Central Kentucky to South Texas in December of 2007, to work in Reynosa, Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley.  The whole family has a desire to see people come to know the Lord and grow in their Christian walk.  The pastors and their families in Reynosa have become a big part of their lives. Shawn and Carla seek to encourage and empower them to continue in God’s calling.

“We can’t imagine life without our friends in Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley.  They have been a huge blessing to us!”  ~ The Estes Family
