About Rick Caywood Ministries
Rick Caywood Ministries Chihuahuan Connections was born on Thanksgiving Day, 1996.
What we do
Our first project was helping build a family home in the tiny desert community of La Caldera, Chihuahua, Mexico.
We helped the congregation of Big Bend Baptist Church in Terlingua, Texas by collecting and delivering building materials and other items. Since this first project, our faithful and loyal supporters have helped us complete mission projects in many states and countries. We have served on all seven continents.
As we are called, we participate in a vast network of missionaries who minister both spiritually and physically to individuals and groups in local and international humanitarian relief and spiritual ministry projects.
Along with many challenges, we have enjoyed many victories. We are excited about the future, as God blesses our yesses and we continue to say, “Yes, Lord.”
Stay with us. The adventure continues!
