MEXICO MISSIONS TRIP

Join us for a week long mission’s trip in Ensenada, Mexico. Our main goal will be to build a home for a single mother from Casa Esperanza. This Christian ministry helps families who have left physically abusive relationships and are trying to get back on their feet.  There are no construction skill requirements and there seems to be a job for all age levels to participate in. All the tools and hands on supervision will be provided. From the very start you will be involved in every process of the building by mixing and pouring the concrete, constructing the walls, attaching the roof structure, hanging sheet rock and taping, and troweling on two coats of exterior plaster (stucco). In addition to the home build there will be opportunities for prayer, gospel outreaches, and ministry to children at Casa Esperanza. Each day we’ll have times with our team to pray, worship, hear a devotional and do a daily debrief. Expect to be stretched and blessed as your serve the Lord in Mexico.
