Mexico Missions Trip

Experience Mexico and recharge your walk with God! Join us in ministering to the people of Rio Chico and the Pima Indian Village of Babicora. We will be doing day camps, construction work, providing medical care, distributing food and clothes, and sharing the Gospel. There will be sightseeing along the way, and stopping at places such as the Carlsbad Caverns. Tarahumara Ministries, a mission who has been leading trips for over 20 years, will be leading our team. We will celebrate Easter Sunday with the people in Mexico. You can expect hard work, challenges, stretching your comfort zone, opportunities to meet new people, hiking, lots of good Mexican food, bumpy roads with lots of twists and turns, learning more Spanish, a lot of children, challenging Bible teaching, and God to work in your heart.
