Reynosa, Mexico Mission Trip
In partnership with Serve His Kids, Crossroads travels to Reynosa, Mexico to serve at Pilar de Esperanza Orphanage. Serve His Kids believes that with proper nutrition, education, and spiritual guidance, the lives of young people can be positively changed.
The team will stay at the orphanage, spend time building relationships with the kids and staff, and serve ministry through work projects, meal preparation, English lessons, sports, games, crafts, and children/youth ministry.
There will be 5-6 team gatherings for orientation and planning held in Cottage Grove. These meetings are required for anyone wishing to travel to Mexico with the team.
The cost of the trip is $1,000 per person. A deposit of $200 is required to hold your place.
