  • Calimax Experience

    On our last day in Mexico, we had a very interesting experience when stopping to purchase vanilla and other items at the local Calimax (Grocery store). As Mark stopped the van a young man approached the drivers door very quickly. The door was opened and Mark was given an impromptu hug. He was an individual with exceptional needs (cognitive disability) and everyone in the van went straight into Adult Special Need Camp mode. read more

  • Worship in Mexico

    When we met on Thursday to share what we learnt in Mexico. One of the common themes that came up was the worship service we experienced when first coming into Mexico. It was a powerful experience as we saw people emotional about their relationship to Christ. There was weeping, confession, dancing, congo lines, communion, and more. read more

  • Building the Home

    We arrived in Mexico on Saturday, April 4. When one drives from San Diego into Mexico and cross the border you can instantly notice how different it is. That line in dirt has a huge impact. Culture is different, luxuries are less. Material wealth is less. Food tastes better (in Mexico). And much more. One leaves Western Civilization and all it encompasses and cross over into Latin America. One of the main reasons YFBC travels to Tijuana each year is because of the Cross-Cultural experience it offers. read more

  • Home From Mexico

    I have been home from the Mexico Mission Trip for 1 week. However, it still feels like part of me is still in Mexico. Maybe it is because there was a group of us from Canada, united for one purpose - to build a home for a needy family. Now being back home, there is too numerous tasks/to do items that I need to accomplish. Maybe it is because our experience in Mexico is simple living. We work, we eat, we sleep. We work, we eat, we sleep. There are less distractions. And we get to have great tasting tacos. It is always a valuable experience. read more

  • The Mexico Experience

    We have been in Mexico for three full days and it has been a really great experience! On Sunday, we had breakfast at around 7:00 and then headed out of camp to find Francisco Ortiz. We built a house for Francisco and his wife Isela in 2008 and have stayed connected with them ever since. Francisco speaks English, so we have hired him as our translator for our last four trips to Mexico. He also is a lay Pastor in his church and we have supported ministries that he has been a part of. read more

  • The Second Day

    The second day of the trip is always much more interesting then the first day. After driving for 18 hours, it is nice to only need to drive for a little over 10 hours on the second day. We woke up in First Mennonite Church of Aberdeen had breakfast and packed lunches. We then headed out with the next stop being Salt Lake City, the home of the Morman Tabernacle and Convention Centre. read more

  • Longest Drive Done

    The longest day on the road trip down to Tijuana, Mexico is completed. We are half way there. It is truly a blessing that we left a day before an April Snow Storm in Saskatchewan. Most years, we leave on Good Friday, but this time we are wanting to be in Mexico to celebrate Easter! Now, while back home there is slippery roads, we are driving to Las Vegas where the high for today is 28 degrees! read more
