Often we need team members who can help with our “set-up day” at the Unidos por Cristo Com-munity Center as we prepare for the arrival of the team members. Those participating in the early team “Bonus Day” are often treated to a relaxing afternoon in La Mision or other destina-tions of exploration. If you have one extra day please consider being part of the Bonus Day early crew—early departure will be Thursday, October 12 at 5 PM.
For almost 3 decades we have been sending teams of youth and adults to the quiet colonias tucked away in the rugged hills overlooking the Playas de Tijuana to build homes, hope and relationships with the working poor families and the marginalized in these local neighborhoods. What began as a mission exploration has grown into a tradition of service and cross cultural bridge building with our brothers and sisters in these impoverished border towns. Community Centers and Churches are host to our growing mission teams providing warm hospitality and assistance with materials and local customs.Over the years we become partners with local pastors, mission workers and business owners who continue to lend support to our community service work and home building projects.
Each year we endeavor to send building teams to construct modest 12×20 dwellings for families who have no shelter of their own or who have multiple families living under one roof. These “casitas” (little homes) are rustic by our standards but are blessings from God to the recipient families. Often waiting lists of families desperately needing shelter and a place to call home grow long which is why every helping hand is a gift from God.
No construction or carpenter experience is necessary to be a vital part of this building ministry. We provide skilled leaders and knowledgeable guides to help you become a valuable member of the team.
Even one weekend can change your heart and deepen your faith in ways that may be unexpected and yet profound. If God has been calling you to explore how you might be able to help others in need, this can be a perfect beginning.
