Mexico -?? November 8-17, 2013
Many people don't think of Mexico as anything but a tourist destination. But up in the highlands of Mexico, four hours from the city of Puebla are nestled multiple communities filled with families in need.
This year, our LIFE teams will be working in these communities to serve them in practical ways. This may include
- distributing blankets to help keep warm in the winter,
- helping with practical work projects around their homes,
- spending time building relationships, and
- encouraging the communities by showing them we care.
Each project looks different as the needs change and as we partner with Mexican "Compassion in Action" teams that work alongside our Canadian teams.
These projects are a great opportunity to see the needs that are so close to home and to be a part of demonstrating the love of God, in word and deed, to these families.
LIFE team projects to Mexico also partner with the JESUS Film Church Planting Strategy and DRIME (Disciples Ready in Mobile Evangelism), to allow team members to reach out to the community with the love of Christ, show the JESUS Film in the surrounding community, and utilize the tools of DRIME (such as the street dramas that engage people in questioning, “who is the man in white?”).
If you have a heart to reach those in need of Christ in the highlands of Mexico we would love to have you join the upcoming team in November!
