We are excited about the upcoming trip to Tesopaco, Mexico. Tesopaco is one of the poorest counties in the Mexican State of Sonora. Presently, a Seventh-day Adventist church and an elementary school are operating in the area, working with the community, especially in the area of education. The school is working with their Conference to expand into a boarding high school. Our project goal is to construct a cement-block dormitory, complete with roof in the allocated time. Several trades people and skilled workers will direct the group in their daily tasks to make this goal a reality for the school.
It will be wonderful to bless the school with a dormitory, but the participants themselves will receive some benefits. First and foremost, it will be an opportunity to be a set of helping hands doing a job for Christ. This trip will also present the experience of serving others and learning about a new country and culture. Our youth will witness firsthand the impact of their actions, and how their blessing will benefit young people like them for years to come.
The date of the trip is February 7-16, 2010
