About the Journey

Through our partnership with Sowing a Vision, this global(x) team of InsideOut students will serve in Mérida, Mexico. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula near the Gulf of Mexico, Mérida has experienced significant economic growth in recent years, 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 global(x)/InsideOut 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. Get ready to dive into a journey that will grow your faith, deepen your connection with others, and broaden your worldview!
