Mission Trip 2019 – Vicente Guerrero, Mexico
One of the team members wrote this about their week: Thank you all for your support and prayers! Leah Adelman took the five of us on a life changing trip. We left San Diego for the orphanage in Vicente Guerrero on February 10th and returned on the 16th. Some highlights from our time spent at the orphanage would be making new friends, going to the Christian rehab center for men called Rancho de Cristo, serving breakfast, going on an outreach to a migrant worker camp, and of course, the amazing smoothies!
On Monday, Thursday, and Friday evenings we got the chance to hangout in the gym with the teenagers who live at the orphanage. This is how we met Enedina, a 16 year old girl who we chose to sponsor. When we got back to San Diego we went to the San Diego Zoo, spent a day walking along the beach, and attended a college basketball game. This was a great way to decompress after an emotional and eye opening experience.
The Highlights of the week included: taking part in an Urban Plunge, giving out sandwiches and hot chocolate to the homelesss and helping at a Compassionate Resource warehouse. Other highlights included helping at a: youth sanctuary, Our Place, Rainbow Kitchen, Carts (soup kitchen), Mustard Seed Warehouse and painting.
