BUMCY Mission Trip 2013
Juntos Servimos in Los Fresnos, TX
Sunday, July 14 - Saturday, July 20
We will be travelling to far South Texas (just past South Padre Island) to Los Fresnos, TX. Our goal is to work with the organization Juntos Servimos to do some repair work on a couple of homes, as well as building some tables/desks for use in a school across the border in Matamoros. We are asking youth to pay $300 each to help cover the costs of this trip. The $300 will cover everything except snacks/souvenirs on the trip. We will be doing a mission share drive in the near future to help cover our expenses.
Unlike the trips we've recently been taking to Oklahoma, this trip will be a 10-12 hour drive. We will be leaving at 7am on Sunday (July 14), and we will return at 9pm on Saturday (July 20). We will have a packing party at 7pm on Saturday (July 13) to help us get out of town on time. We will have time to play at the beach, try some local fun spots, and spend some peaceful time together in the evenings. On Friday (July 19), we will spend the day at Schlitterbahn at South Padre Island.
We are staying at the Los Fresnos UMC. We will be sleeping on the floor, but they have a couple of showers and a fully equipped kitchen. Participants are welcome to bring air mattresses to sleep on if the floor doesn't seem like a fun idea. Please print out a copy of the packing list from the link above and also fill out the medical release form. We are not going into Mexico, so no one will need a passport for this trip.
