A Mexico mission trip is set again for 2016 and will be the 18th trip to Mexico. To be eligible age-wise, youth must be in 7th grade or higher. The youth, along with several adults, serve by proclaiming the Gospel and meeting the physical needs of people in Mexico. 

 

The training and preparation of the team in the past has involved a 50 day Bible study, 5 training meetings over several weeks and a witnessing project in Pierre.  Team members will be required to participate in other ministries such as CrossTrainers at the Pierre Indian Learning Center and encouraged to help with Vacation Bible School.  Added to this are various work projects to learn how to work together as a team.  These work projects, primarily yard work, are also a means of raising funds to cover the trip expenses.  The work projects are done on a donation basis only.  The only other fund raiser is the annual Chili Feed with the donations being split among the youth. Mucho gracias to everyone who supports the mission trip.

The trip down and back are not idle time.  Stops made during the trip are opportunities to do street evangelism, pass out Gospel tracts, and do some other fun activities as well.  While in Mexico, the team helps with various construction projects such as painting, roofing, carpentry, and concrete to name a few.  Past work has involved working on the orphanage, in public schools and homes plus helping with clothes distributions.  In addition to the work projects, the team uses skits and puppet shows to share the “Good News” of salvation through Jesus Christ!  Many people are under the impression that they are good enough to go to Heaven. Do you think you are good enough? Find out!

 

Prayers are encouraged and very much appreciated!  Thank you for joining us in serving our risen Savior as we introduce the lost to Him -- Jesus Christ.
