Mexico Service Trip

  • Puerto Peñasco Mexico (map)

We are headed to Mexico for our 5th Annual house building trip with i6eight
Ministries in Rocky Point (Puerto Peñasco), Mexico. Each year we carve
out a weekend for us as a community to go down together and not only
build a home for a family, but to build relationships with people in the
community there and strengthen relationships among the group that goes.

This is an intergenerational trip; we’ve had people come along from toddlers and teenagers to, well, those wonderful people who probably won’t have to take a day off from school…or work :) EVERY participant who comes plays a crucial role in the trip, not only will we all swing hammers, cut wood, and paint, but we spend intentional time in community with different people we meet. We need YOU! 


  • Sunday Jan. 17 - Deposits & Registrations Due
  • Sunday Jan. 31 - Participant Meeting (Final logistics, Full Payment Due)
  • Saturday Feb. 6 - Packing Day (Tents, Tools, Bags, Passports, Forms)
  • Friday Feb. 12 - Depart for Mexico!


Individual: $300 

Family: $300 each for first two; $100 each additional person

Children: $100 (5th grade and younger)

This cost covers everything but any food you want to eat on the road. That said, we do not want cost to be prohibitive for anyone to join us, there are scholarships available and we highly encourage EVERY participant to write support letters. If you want to make a donation beyond this, any additional funds raised will help provide scholarships so that everyone can go.

*Deposit of $50 per participant or $100 per family due by Jan. 17. Make checks payable to Trinity Mennonite Church with memo line: Mexico 2016 and drop off in the church office.
