Calling all life groupers to a special service and learning weekend with our Sunridge ministry partner, Door of Faith Orphanage, in La Misión, Baja!
This weekend will be spent on-site learning from ministry leaders and serving in all sorts of ways. Our group will travel across the border by caravan from Sunridge on the morning of Friday, November 12th, and return mid-morning on Sunday, November 14th. We will stay in bunkhouses at the campground on the Door of Faith campus, eat delicious local Mexican food, and enjoy time around the campfire each night together.
Although Mexican COVID regulations prevent our direct interaction with the children of Door of Faith, the staff tells us that our service there will nonetheless be incredibly valuable, as they have lost many of their regular visitors during this challenging season.
All life group participants and their family members (middle school and older) are invited to register, whether or not your life group leaders will be joining us. Please note that all participants must be fully vaccinated and have a valid passport. A fee of $60/person will be collected during online registration that will cover accommodation at Door of Faith, dinner on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, costs associated to service projects, and international insurance (all collected money will be distributed to the ministries and businesses in Mexico providing the services). Participants should expect to cover any additional food needs (lunch on Friday in La Misión and dinner at a taco stand in Rosarito on Saturday night) and personal expenses while in Mexico, which should be minimal.
Detailed information will be provided in a brief (30 minute) informational session immediately following the church service on Sunday, October 3, in room 109.
In the meantime, if you are at all interested we recommend immediately applying for your passport now if you do not have one. Every person crossing to and from Mexico needs a US passport valid for at least six months after the trip and processing times vary widely. If you are not able to get it in time, rest assured that we will offer this trip again for life groupers in the Spring of 2022!
I know you probably have a lot of questions! Please feel free to direct any preliminary questions before the information session to Lisa Owens at email@example.com.
