Beginning in 2003, a team of excited youth and chaperones travelled down to experience a week building a home for a deserving family in the community of Ensenada, Mexico.
Ensenada is located approx. 100 km from the US border on the Baja peninsula.
The project has grown as the years have passed, and many of our youth and adult church members have made the journey multiple times. In 2017, the scope of the work we have been called expanded as the leadership team began working with our local Pastor Rigoberto Avina to explore ways to support the community in sustainable initiatives throughout the year, in addition to the house building ministry that remains the cornerstone of our ministry.
New projects include funding feeding programs for children and seniors, providing access to dental and medical care, and future plans include a maternal care program for young mothers. Our visit to a local orphanage was a great deal of fun and impacted everyone on the team, and we hope to continue to include that in the weekly itinerary.
