Mexico Mission 2021
In 1986, Steven Mabry took 36 youth and 9 adults to Tijuana to build homes.
that time, The United Church has sponsored 34 spring break trips and 6
summer trips to various areas of Mexico. We have built homes, churches,
baños, orphanage walls, and home additions. Over 2600 worker weeks
have provided the equivalent of 155 single homes!!
Mission 2020 would have been our 35th annual spring break trip. But we
all know what happened instead. Our Amor Ministries donations and fees
were sent to Puerto Peñasco. When the local government allowed, Amor
staff members and local workers constructed three houses with our
sponsorship. (Please consult the church website for links to photos and
videos of our three families!)
We are all disappointed
that we are not able to travel to Mexico this spring break. Amor
Ministries writes: Please extend our thanks to all who have financially
and prayerfully supported us—we continue this work because of faithful
groups like yours and we appreciate you so much!
we can’t be there in person, it is still possible to make an impact.
We can sponsor the three houses we would have built in the next few
weeks! At $4000 per house sponsorship, that would be $12,000.
are designating April 2021 as MEXICO MISSION Month! Donations can be sent
by check to the church (designate Mexico Mission in the memo line) or
online through the church website. On Sunday, April 25th, we will
dedicate the zoom coffee hour to Mexico Mission. Join in to hear from
special guests, and maybe even an auction item or two!
If you want to know more, please contact Rev. Keith Lewis or Randy & Laura Erickson.
THANK YOU for your generous support of this worthwhile adventure!
