Hope at the US/MX Border

Several teams from our campus have taken trips down to the border to assess what’s happening and what God might be saying to us to be involved as a ministry. Two trips later and host of meetings, it was pretty clear we needed to do something.

Though there is news about what’s happening at the border on main stream media, it doesn’t seem to be as prevalent as I think it should be. The topic of immigration is complicated, and it’s apparent our immigration system needs attention. What’s heartbreaking are the lives of families and children victimized through their search for a better life.

I wrote more about this topic and what’s happening at the border in a blog we published for YWAM Tyler. I hope you will take the time to read it, watch the videos, and consider helping however you can.

I want to encourage you to pray and ask the Lord if there’s something you can do. Here’s an info page to find more information about what we are trying to do at the border: Hope at the Border You can also contact me directly at richard.fish@ywamtyler.org if you want talk more about how you can be involved.

Please pray for me and our communications team as we try our best to bring awareness to this issue, mobilize short-term mission teams, and raise needed funds. We’ve taken on this project on top of our regular work, and it can feel overwhelming.

Thank you for your investment in our family in missions. We are so thankful for our partnerships.


Here’s something fun for you. Audrey put a together a recap video of the Junior Senior Trip. Amy and I had such a good time touring some sights around Texas. Thank you to everyone who support our family to make this trip special.


June 2021 we are planning a trip back east in conjunction with Audrey’s film camp at Asbury University. We would love to connect with you all as much as we can. It’s been way too long since we’ve seen many of you. Once we figure out our travel plans, we will let you know. As you continue to pray for our family, we covet your prayers concerning our housing need. We don’t actually have a plan secured for moving yet, but we do trust God to make it clear what we are to do next.

Habakkuk 2:3 “Though [the vision] tarry, wait for it, it will surely come …”
