Grace Community Church Tijuana, Mexico 2017 Team Donations
Sat, Aug 5, 2017, 5:00 AM – Sun, Aug 13, 2017, 7:00 AM EDT
From August 5th through August 13th, a group from Grace Community Church will head to Tijuana, Mexico to for our 9th annual summer trip with Mexico Caravan Ministries.
Our team’s primary work will be to build sixteen 12´x12´ or 12´x16´ homes for those who don’t have adequate shelter. Most of the families we will build for will solely have a cement slab and are in desperate need of a roof over their head. Others will have one small, overcrowded home already and we will be helping to provide a little more space. We also buy a Spanish Bible for each family we build for.
At the same time as building, we will have the chance to meet the families who we are building for and take time to play with the children in the community. Every year we give out soccer balls, bubbles and candy to these children.
Lastly, on Friday, part of our group will have the privilege of spending time with New Generations Orphanage who we have built a relationship with over the last six years. We will be taking their entire group to a local water park and getting pizza for lunch. Traditionally, this has been the one outing the children get for the year. The other part of our group will be heading to the Tijuana Dump to feed the 400 people who live there.
We are very excited about what God will do through our team. We know this trip will be a life changing experience for each of us but also for the people that we will be serving in Tijuana, Mexico. In order to build these houses and reach the community, each participant needs to raise $1,500 to cover our expenses. We would ask you to prayerfully consider helping support our team.
If you feel led to make a donation to the trip, please use the form above to make a tax deductable donation of your choosing. Whether you make a donation or not, we really covet your prayers as well! We will need a lot of prayer support for this trip that we, as well as the people we will encounter, will experience Christ.
Thanks for considering partnering with us on this trip!
