As part of our plan to see students raised up who will touch nations, we are excited to offer a mission to Mexico!  During this week-long mission trip students will have an opportunity to:
• Experience life in a culture quite different to ours
• Serve alongside members of a local church to help with practical needs (building maintenance, repair projects, facility beautification, etc)
• Serve alongside members of a local church in person-to-person evangelism and prayer ministries
• Serve alongside members of a local church to produce a VBS that will bless the community.
• Grow closer to their team and to Jesus through serving, praying, worshipping together.

What does a typical day look like?
While each day is different, the basic layout is this:
7-8:30am: Breakfast, chores, devotions, prayer
8:30am-noon: Work projects, evangelism and prayer ministries
Noon-1pm: Lunch provided by our host church
1pm-2pm: VBS Prep
2pm-4pm: VBS
4pm-6pm: Dinner and debrief
6-8pm: Weds and Thursday: ministry projects in community, other days free time
Both Saturdays will be travel days, Sunday will be an orientation day and an opportunity to attend the local church we’re working with.  Friday is a free-day for our group to play on the beach, enjoy local attractions and reflect on what God has done in our group through the week.

Will my student be safe in Mexico?
You may wonder if it’s safe to send your student to this part of Mexico – here is some information to help put your heart at ease:
• Our area of ministry is in a rural, agricultural setting with little or no safety issues whatsoever. We are not in a large city, but a farming valley made up of smaller communities.
• We will be staying in a very safe, gated and fenced Mission Base where full-time missionaries live.
• Most of the issues in Mexico have occurred over 800 miles from our area and involve infighting among drug traffickers. They do not involve tourist or the common people.
• The main highway we use on our drive down is the major (and only) highway of the Baja Peninsula. Every day there are about 10,000 cars that use this highway and there have been virtually no incidents on this road.
• During our time in Mexico, we are accompanied by a full-time missionary who has lived year-round in this area of Mexico for over 20 years.

Where can I find more information?

We would encourage you to check out: gomissionstomexico.com – this is the website of the missionary group who hosts us and organizes our ministry in Mexico.  Their website is extremely thorough, and will give you a good overview of the trip.
