Mission trip to Mexico December 21-28, 2015. Come and serve with us. and help provide change.
Our area of focus for 2016 is located in Baja Mexico, in the little town of San Quintin. The town is located about four hours south of Tijuana. The surrounding area is home to about 25,000 people. Most of whom spend 10-12 hours a day working on large commercial farms that provide fresh produce to the United States. They work to grow strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. It's common for children to start work in the fields at about age 12. They work their way up to earning a full adult wage of between $8 to $12 a day.
As one can imagine, $10/day is not enough to cover the basics of life, and yet these hard working people do miracles with so little. We are working to provide some simple items such as clothing, household items, shoes, coats and food. Below are descriptions of how we are working to provide change, during our service trip in Dec. 2015. We are focusing in 3 different areas.
Let us know how you can help Provide Change.
In poor areas many families can't afford basic food staples. We hope to provide a 2-3 month supply of food for families who are struggling. These are strong people who value family and independence. They are working hard every day to earn their way. Imagine what it would feel like for someone to give you the break of 2-3 months of food. We are hoping it will give them the breathing room to get ahead so they don't have to live on a week to week basis. We are so excited about providing change this way.
Post it, tweet it, share it. The more people you tell, the more change we can provide.
