Mexico 2019

This coming January 2019, a team of 71 children and adults from FUMCCV will be traveling to Ensenada, Mexico to partner with YUGO Ministries in a house building project for four families in need.
 
YUGO is an international missions organization that houses offices in Canada, the United States, and Mexico and focuses on proclaiming the Gospel in three main ways: outreach, discipleship, and orphan care. We are excited to be a part of changing the lives of the families we work with and their community, just south of the border.
 
Our church has been involved with YUGO Ministries for many years. Not only will two adult teams be able to build two separate homes but our church’s Youth Group made up of tweens and teens, and a group of interns will take full ownership of a separate build of a fourth home. This mission experience will truly be transformational in ways that are both challenging and meaningful to every member on our build team, as well as the families receiving the blessing of a home to call their own.
 
Because this is a mission trip, all funds are to be raised and our team needs to raise $30,000 to make this trip of building four homes possible. We re thrilled to report that we have already raised $17,500 which means only $12,500 is needed in order to fully fund the Mission Trip. On behalf of the Mexico Mission Team, we would like to invite you to be a part of this transformative experience by donating to this cause. All contributions will go toward covering the costs of transportation, building materials, furnishings, and bettering the lives of the families we work with.
 
You can make a donation in the offering plate on Sunday, in the church office, or by clicking HERE.

Thank you for your help!
