8 Days – Trip U
Join one of Global Expeditions oldest and most popular trips to Mexico. Join with hundreds of other missionaries as you go into Mexico with the love of Jesus. Where you will be heading, it’s not uncommon to see families living in a box or an abandoned car, being looked past every day, wanting simply to be acknowledged or given some source of hope. This trip to Mexico is one of our most popular trips for a reason.
This trip embodies what Christianity is all about and represents the very heart of Global Expeditions. We want to bring hope and life to a world that has none. We not only tell them about Jesus Christ, but we band together to help meet the physical needs of the world in ways that will change their lives forever. When you come with Global Expeditions, you are guaranteed to experience one of the most exciting and unforgettable adventures of your life.
Day 1 – Arrive in San Diego (we are meeting at the San Diego airport) and register for your trip! You will then load onto a bus for the trip across the border! Once you arrive in Mexico, you’ll set up camp and that night we will focus on understanding our goals for the mission trip and asking God to prepare us for ministry!
Day 2 – Train for your mission trip. You will learn about the programs you’ll be leading and how to interact with the people of Baja. You will also learn how to share your testimony effectively.
Day 3-6 – Share your faith in Baja, Mexico through children’s programs and testimony sharing through home visitations in the community!
