2017 Mexico Mission Trip

The mission trip this summer is solidifying nicely. Here’s the information available thus far.

When

July 14 thru July 23.

Where

Toluca, Mexico.

The city of Toluca is the capital of the state of Mexico. It lies roughly two hours northeast of Mexico City, at an elevation of 7000 feet. We will fly into Mexico City and travel by private van to the city of Toluca. The San Bartolo neighborhood is on the outskirts of the city, and has many families who work at making bricks for the construction industry.

Cost

$900 to $1200 for the 10 day trip (which includes airfare).

Funding

A GoFundMe project has been created, for those wishing to provide financial support for the upcoming Toluca missions trip.

To express Jesus’ love to the residents of the San Bartolo neighborhood, an area very near the Christian community development center of Toluca, Mexico.

The mission is brought to us through the following organizations

  • Vacation Bible School Program
  • Community Service Building Project

  • Desayuno (breakfast at 7am to 9am)
  • Comida (main meal of the day at about 2pm)
  • Cena (evening light meal at 7pm to 9pm)

Meals will be prepared by the ladies of the church and our host families.
