2019 Mexico Service Trip

 
 

We're headed to Mexico for our 8th Annual house building trip with i6eight Ministries in Rocky Pointe (Puerto Penasco), 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. EVERY participant who comes plays a crucial role in the trip, not only will we all be swinging hammers, cutting wood and painting, but we spend intentional time in community with different people we meet. We need YOU!
