Housebuilding in Mexico 2022

Housebuilding in Mexico 2022

Join Us April 7-10, 2022

Join us April 7-10 for this life-changing trip. A team from SFC will journey to Tecate, Mexico to help build homes for families in need, in partnership with Amor Ministries. This trip is part of a rich tradition. Over the last decade, SFC teams have built more than 120 homes in partnership with Amor, with several hundred participants.

While the goals and spirit of the trip remain the same as past years, there will be a few changes in 2022. This will be a shortened trip, utilizing as much of Amor’s resources as possible to simplify much of the logistics. Amor’s trip package will include charter buses to get the team over the border to the Amor camp, shuttles to and from the camp to worksites, tents and meals. Amor will also provide the tools for the trip so that SFC does not have to pack and clean tools.

In 2022, the trip will be truly intergenerational, and not part of high school ministries. As such, all who can help are invited, and anyone under 18 who wants to come must have a chaperone over 21. There will be no student-specific transportation or bus this year. All participants will be responsible for getting themselves to and from San Diego.

Thanks to donations in 2020 and 2021 the cost of the trip is only $200 per person, plus the cost of personal transportation to and from San Diego. The charge will be waived for those who donated funds to participate in the trip in 2020, when the trip was cancelled due to the pandemic.

The registration deadline is February 11, but we cap the trip at 56 participants, so register now to ensure your spot. Spots are filling up fast. For additional information, contact Spencer Sells.
