Discover the long-lasting impact that missions trips and building homes have on families in Mexico. Learn how your mission trip can make a difference!
When I gave my life to the Lord in 1995, James 2:20 quickly became my life verse and a living mantra – to show faith through action, "You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?" My passion since then has been turning those words into action, mission trips quickly became an integral part of who I am. One of my favorite destinations is Mexico where we bring God’s love and joy by running VBS programs, ministering in prisons, providing much-needed food and clothing supplies…and best of all building homes for families who need it most.
If you ever wonder why house-building? It comes down to showing radical generosity, practical faith, and changing a families life!
Having a home can be a life-changing experience for families in need, with many long-term effects. During our trips to Mexico, we see this firsthand as we provide homes to deserving families in underprivileged communities throughout Baja California. We have seen five distinct changes that occur when families receive their own home:
Building a home, feeding, and clothing the poor is a direct fulfillment of Isaiah 58:6-7
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Our mission trips are about more than providing basic needs - they're an opportunity to see real transformation happen around the world! Through our partnerships with YWAM and other great missionary groups, we know that building houses is only one step: true connection comes from continued discipleship long after the trip ends. And when families take this opportunity to join Bible studies, attend church and many even decide to give back to their community as staff members? That's where deep spiritual change happens!
Together, we can be part of something bigger than ourselves that leads to lasting life change within each community. I invite you to join us in this mission, as together we can work to share God’s love with those in need. Let’s make a difference around the world!
