Dress Code.

APPEARANCE CODE Our Code of appearance deals mainly with our testimony in the eyes of the world. Anyone using or lodging on the property of the Rio Grande Missionary Help facilities will be expected to comply with this code. Please do not ask for exceptions. We expect our guests to conduct themselves as Christian ladies and gentlemen at all times. This is to show in their attitude, speech, actions, and appearance. Since their appearance is obvious to all, we are elaborating upon it. Family or church members of missionaries are welcome to use these facilities, but only if they are accompanied by the missionary. We seek to follow the guide lines established in God's Word for His people. We believe that the Bible establishes at least three minimum standards for Christian dress: MODESTY (I Timothy 2:9, II Timothy 2:22). It is true that God's standards for men and women are high. DISTINCTION (Deuteronomy 22:5 , I Corinthians 11:14, 15). Men should dress like men and women should dress like women. Notice in Deuteronomy 22:5 the verse says that if we do not dress according to our sex, we are an "...abomination unto the Lord our God." IDENTIFICATION with the Lord and not the world (I Timothy 4:12, Romans 12:1,2, I John 2:15-16). I Timothy 4:12 says, "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." LADIES: The Bible clearly teaches that women are to adorn themselves in modest apparel. Your dresses and skirts must be long enough to completely cover your knees. You must not wear tight sweaters or tight skirts, The neckline of your dresses and blouses must not be revealing or suggestive. Do not wear clothing which will identify you with the unisex crowd, pant suits, slacks, jeans, pedal pushers, gaucho pants, etc.) Do not wear shorts, see-through clothing, tight fitting, reveling clothing, split and\or slit skirts. RIO GRANDE MISSIONARY HELP APPEARANCE CODE Though we believe that culottes are acceptable, when made according to a certain pattern, we request no culottes for our Open Air Missions activities. If you have a question regarding whether or not to wear something, it is safer to wear something of which you have no question. This will avoid embarrassment to you as well as our staff to have to confront you about your dress. Keep your hair clean and well groomed. Do not let your hair style be exaggerated or overwhelming. Be very careful about "trend" and "mod" styles. If you wear make-up, please be sure that it is applied in such a way that it does not call attention to the fact that you are "painted." Always be sure that you are not noticed for your flashy clothing, obvious hair-do, or gaudy jewelry. The Bible points out very candidly that these must not attract attention. MEN: Dress like Christian gentlemen. Be sure you are clean and neatly dressed. Keep your hair clean and well groomed. It must not in any way identify you with styles that have been set by the world. You must not wear short pants, tight fitting, revealing pants, or go without a shirt. We expect our missionary ministering to be spiritually uplifting to the Mexican People and be a CHRISTIAN EXAMPLE to them and not a stumbling block in their Christian dedication. I accept this Code of Appearance and will practice it while occupying the facilities at the Rio Grande Missionary Help ministry. I will arrive on the RGMH property in conformance to this dress code and at my departure, if I desire to change into other apparel, I will do so after I leave the premises. _____________________________________________ For The Glory Of The Lord Bill Waldrop
