Southwest Good
Samaritan Ministries

Thank you, Dear Friends,

for the outpouring of concern for God’s children on the Gulf Coast, given the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.  We at Southwest Good Samaritan were impacted by heavy wind and rains, but the Valley has not suffered nearly as greatly as our neighbors to the north from Corpus Christi into Louisiana.  We celebrate with you that our Week of Compassion ministry, a ministry that has responded to emergency needs of Disciples for decades, is already working with partners to address food, water, clothing and medical needs of victims of  this storm.  Just as Week of Compassion has helped us here at SWGSM to respond to refugee crises, we join with Week of Compassion now in support of this pressing calamity.  Pray with us.  Watch for the “ready” signal from Week of Compassion and its partners, so that we will know when the damaged areas are safe for our being there to help rebuild.  And give what you can of financial resources.  You are welcome to contact us, or go to

In God’s service,  

Welcome to Southwest Good Samaritan Ministries! If you are a refugee or a person with an emergency need, contact us. We are here to help you. If you wish to serve God's people in need along the Texas/Mexico border, we welcome your support and mission work. While our ministry primarily serves political refugees who are seeking safety from persecution in their home countries, our ministry has expanded to serve the needs of the poor on the Texas side of the border. We believe in educating all of God's people, and we do so through assisting with high school and college tuition support for students and through a Bible Institute in Monterrey, Mexico. And while safety issues keep us from sending workers into Mexico, we continue to support the Casa Bethel children's home through our donations.  There is a lot to do and we welcome your help whether in the form of donations or mission workers.  If you have never stayed with us on a mission trip, we invite you to reserve a time to join us. We welcome you!

I Was A Stranger

Seeing the face of the God of Jesus in the face and the journey of each of these brothers and sisters--the least of these--makes us feel like we are always in touch with the anguish of the cross but also with the hope of the resurrection.
