With the threat of kidnapping, carjacking and other criminal activity looming over Matamoros, Mexico, Jerry Benson didn’t hesitate to follow where the Lord leads. It was a journey to the southernmost tip of Texas on the Gulf of Mexico coast. Matamoros is a border town and the second largest and second most populous city in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. Just after Christmas, Benson traveled with his brother Jack and other members of the First Baptist Church in Hennessey to start the mission expedition on December 26, 2013. Altogether, there were 111 Americans that would join forces in the mission field working for the non-denominational organization The Way of the Cross International Ministries.
