2020 Mexico (Merida) Service 1
About the Journey
Alongside Sowing a Vision, this global(x) team will serve in Mérida, Mexico, located on the Yucatan Peninsula near the Gulf of Mexico. This vibrant city has a rich cultural and architectural history that includes ancient Mayan ruins and Spanish-built churches and mansions. It’s considered one of the safest cities in Mexico. In recent years, Mérida has experienced economic growth, but the disparity between the rich and the poor is still dramatic.
Sowing a Vision is an organization committed to meeting the needs of their local community through construction, kids’ camps, and much more. We’re looking for a high-energy team ready to dive into a community construction project. Since Spanish is Mérida’s native language, Spanish-speaking team members will be an asset and are encouraged to apply. Non-Spanish speakers should also apply because we need you on this team too!
This global(x) team will be working with local church men on at least one large construction project, such as a church or community building. It’s a very physically active trip. Relationally, the team will also have the opportunity to host Vacation Bible School for local children, play games, do some arts and crafts, sing some songs, and have fun with the kids.
Through your interaction, you’ll be sharing the love of Christ, but you will also grow in faith and love through your experience with the local Mérida people. If you’re interested in this global(x) journey, apply today!
New for 2020!
