Compañeros en Misión was greatly saddened by the death of its leader, Rev. Dr. Jorge Pazos Aragón, on December 25, 2021, from complications due to COVID. Dr. Pazos had led Compañeros en Misión from the time he was the pastor of the church in Hermosillo, 25 years ago. Compañeros en Misión is located in the sister cities of Nogales, Sonora and Nogales, Arizona—or as they are called locally, Ambos Nogales (both Nogaleses). While its primary mission is new church development throughout the Mexican State of Sonora (under the jurisdiction of the Presbytery of Chihuahua), Compañeros en Misión actively supports asylum seekers at the border through their food ministry. Congregations currently include Sol de Justicia (Sun of Justice) in Nogales; Voz del Desierto (Voice of the Desert), in Hermosillo; and a congregation in Caborca called La Hermosa (the Beautiful).
