JOIN FIRST CHURCH ON A MISSION TRIP TO BAJA, CA!
For the past few years, First Church has sent a team of people down to Ensenada to work with an organization called Yugo.
We will be leaving the afternoon of Thursday, Feb. 13 and returning by noon on Monday, Feb. 17.
Absolutely no building skills are required, and there is no age limit on who can go (I’ve been on builds where we’ve put 4-year-olds to work!). If there is interest and enough volunteers, we may even be able to do a VBS for the local children.
ABOUT THE YUGO MINISTRY IN ENSENADA
A local church pastor is allowed to pick up to two families per year to receive a home through Yugo. The family must be able to purchase the land and pay for the foundation to be laid. Once that occurs, teams like ours come down and build a three-room house for them in only three days (electricity but no plumbing). During the build, the family is there to help and get to know the people who are building their home and throughout the weekend there is a lot of laughter, a few tears, and the love of God surrounding everyone.
The cost for this trip is $350/adult and $250/child (ages 3-10). All meals are included (but bring extra money for the taco stands).
We are housed at the Yugo complex just south of Ensenada. It is gated and in a very safe neighborhood.
SUPPORT YUGO MINISTRY
If you are unable to attend but would still like to support this ministry, you can make a donation to the cost of the house or to a scholarship fund to help support a church member to go. Please contact Pastor Melissa Spence
Each family member has to register separately. You may opt to pay in full at the time of registration or you may choose to only make the required, non-refundable down payment of $50 per person.
