Dates: Mar 20 - Apr 2, 2018

 

OPTION #1 - PROGRESO, MEXICO

Overview: Finally, an opportunity for families to serve in mission. This team will work together to present the Gospel using the arts and serve as needed in places of profound need. It is a 12 day missions trip during Spring Break for people of all ages.  Some of the neediest areas in Mexico are near the tourist areas.  The differences between the rich and poor in these areas and the amount of hopelessness and suicide is staggering. The team will be staying together in a safe location and hosted by Christian workers in Progreso with the beach closeby. Each day will include service opportunities, performances at Bible Camps, schools 

and in the communities surrounding Progreso. There will be opportunities to debrief almost everyday to help you integrate your experience. 

Costs: $2500 CAD per adult and $2100 per child.  This covers all food, ground transportation, ministry and training expenses and entrances to venues. These totals are subject to change due to factors such as exchange rates, flight costs, numbers of team members, etc. You will need to cover the cost of your flights to Calgary for training and Mexico for ministry. This presents you with the option to use airmiles or other forms of rewards points in order to reduce your overall cost if you would like to.  We will need a $500 deposit per team member along with each application by Oct 15, 2017 in order to hold your place on the team and book your flight. Spring Break is an ideal time for families to travel but we will need to move forward early in order to get flights booked. 

Options: If you would like to extend your trip in Cancun at the end of your mission experience you have the option to tack on a few days of vacation time since you're already there. We can arrange for different return flights depending on your wishes. These costs would be incurred by the participant. We usually cap our teams at 26 members but are able to to accommodate up to 36 comfortably.

Overview: Finally an opportunity for family to serve in mission. This team will work together to present the Gospel using the arts and serve as needed in the refugee camps surrounding the town of San Quintin. It is a 12 day missions trip during Spring Break for people of all ages.  It will begin with a training period in Calgary then we will travel together to San Diego followed by taking a rental van down the Baja peninsula. Many Mexican families live in these refugee 

camps and need the hope that only Jesus brings. You will stay at a facility in the community of San Quintin and each day will include worship, devotionals, preparation, serving in practical ways, travel to the refugee camps, performances and prayer with families and debriefing.
