About the Journey

In partnership with Sowing a Vision, this InsideOut student team will serve in Mérida, Mexico, located on the Yucatan Peninsula near the Gulf of Mexico. Considered one of the safest cities in Mexico, this vibrant city has a rich cultural and architectural history that includes ancient Mayan ruins and Spanish-built churches and mansions. 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. This student team will work alongside the local community on at least one large construction project, such as a church or community building. The team will help build roofs, floors, and courts, and paint auditoriums and multipurpose rooms. In Mérida, building construction requires the use of beams, sand, gravel, cement, and blocks. The team will need to lift beams and blocks, help prepare cement mix, and carry heavy buckets. 

Relationally, the team will also have the opportunity to host Vacation Bible School for local children, play games, hold arts and crafts classes, sing songs, and have fun with the kids. 

Serving the people of Mérida with your hard work and your love for Jesus will be an impactful and purposeful experience. If you’re looking to dive into a journey that will grow your faith, deepen your connection with others, and broaden your worldview, this is it!

Students, if you are under the age of 18 and will be at the time of travel, you will need a parent present to help you complete the Releases portion of the application.
