Spread the Word – End 2017 with an Impact and Change Lives Forever.
For the last twelve years we have partnered with an organization call Amor. This is an organization that has been working faithfully alongside local pastors in Mexico to identify both the needs and the hopes of the people. Through this partnership, we go to build homes alongside the precious families who live there. To learn more about all that Amor does – go to www.amor.org and read all about it.
WHEN: December 26 – 31, 2017
WHERE: Tijuana, Mexico via San Diego, California
COST: $600 + airline ticket (number may slightly adjust depending on final number of participants)
SCHEDULE: We fly on the 26th. We meet with Amor staff in southern San Diego. That afternoon they accompany us to our campsite on the outside edge of Tijuana. We work with a vendor there who provides all of our tents. They also provide all of our meals for the week. We work full days – the 27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th. A team of 13 to 15 folks can build a house in 4 days! We leave very early the morning of the 31st and are escorted across the border by 8 am. We then head to Coronado for some time at the beach. We worship with the waves and the seagulls before heading to lunch. We arrive at the airport around 12 pm for our afternoon flight in order to return home in time for New Year’s Eve. When you lay down in bed that night you can count on being a changed – deeper – stronger – more faithful person. Transformation is a guaranteed part of this immersion.
Instead of celebrating Christmas with more stuff, how about investing in this world in this way?
We travel to San Diego on the 26th of December. Most over the years have chosen to fly but at times families have driven to San Diego and met us there. Whatever option is best for you is good. I ask all to meet by 1:30 pm on the 26th at the San Diego airport.
