You may have heard that North Church will be taking a mission trip this summer to Acuna Mexico. We can now announce that this trip is beginning to take shape.
Dates: July 10-17
These dates are tentative and could change 1-2 days on either end. As it stands now, we hope to use July 10 and 17 as travel dates and 11-16 as work days.
At this point it is difficult to estimate the cost. The costs will encompass the following: Food (we will prepare all meals in the kitchen of the church where we will stay in Del Rio), gas, lodging (There is a small per person charge). We hope to keep the cost to a minimum. Part of the purpose of this trip is to allow for cost and time away to be kept at a minimum so that more people can take a foreign mission trip.
At this point our work will be two fold.
First, we will be doing some minor construction work. We will be building walls and running electric in the auditorium of a church in Acuna as well as enclosing an area that will service as foyer of sorts for the church.
Second, we will do some Bible club type activity near the church in Acuna.There is a large housing project next to the church with lots of children. We will do some work with the children of the neighborhood.
There will also be opportunities that will be impromptu to serve the people of the city. You will have opportunities to be with and love on the girls in the crisis pregnancy center.
It is important to note that you WILL NEED a passport in order to do this trip. If you have intentions to go and do not have a passport, please begin the process of securing your passport.
