Nogales is located along the Arizona border, about one hour south of Tucson. It used to be a sleepy, little, border town until US and European companies established factories to take advantage of the cheap labor. People don’t plan on living in Nogales. They just end up there. People come to Nogales from further south with hopes of crossing into the US, but their hopes are seldom realized. One day they wake up and find themselves working in a factory for $1/hr, raising their family in a squatter’s village, and living in a house made of pallets and a dirt floor, without basic utilities like water or electric.
Cuirim Outreach is meant to be an expression of God’s Kingdom in a small community on the outskirts of Nogales, Mexico. Founded by Brian Donohue, teams are invited to participate in serving the community through work, study, and prayer. More information on Cuirim Outreach.
