This trip is a short-term mission trip based on serving the local church in Mexico, while creating cross-cultural understanding through direct exposure to the Mexican culture. We are not just building a house in a developing nation. We also are going to understand the conditions of poverty through immersion.

  • April 14 - Fly to California from Saskatoon, stay overnight
  • April 15 - Drive to Tijuana
  • April 16 - Go to church in Mexico, see some sites in Mexico
  • April 17-20 - Build houses in Mexico!
  • April 21 - Travel home

We are excited about the opportunity to have an experience like this. It will be a life changing event.

House Plans

This Mexican Mission trip gives us the opportunity to serve God and people. Participants will be changed by attending this trip! I am excited about it and cannot wait for the van to leave!

We will be building a 11’x22’, two-room home with a slab floor, stucco-finished exterior, two windows, and a door. It is a simple design, built according to the standards of the community.

The house will be built for a family on the outskirts of Tijuana, Mexico. The roads are dirt, there is no running water, no electricity, no streetlights, no garbage collection, and no mail service. The government has been trying to improve the living conditions in these areas. In these communities, families purchase, on average, a 20' by 40' lot from the government to live on. The typical home that is constructed on the lot is from used garage doors with a dirt floor. When it rains, the family ends up living in a house with a floor that turns to mud.

We are going to Mexico to build hope in the life of a family.
