BUMCY Mission Trip 2015
Juntos Servimos in Los Fresnos, TX
Sunday, July 5 - Saturday, July 11
We will be travelling to far South Texas (just past South Padre Island) to Los Fresnos, TX. We are working with the organization Juntos Servimos. We plan on building a storage building and tying down a house. Last year, we worked at the local Good Samaritans complex where we repainted one building, rebuilt a handrail, and replaced a roof on another building. 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.
Unlike the trips we've recently been taking to Oklahoma, this trip will be a 10-12 hour drive. We will be leaving at 8am on Sunday, and we will return around noon on Saturday. Due to my hectic schedule, we will NOT get to have a packing party on Saturday night. That means that we have to be extra organized to get everything done on Sunday morning (paperwork, final payments, and packing the trailer) so that we can get away by 8am. 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, we will spend the day at the New Braunfels Schlitterbahn.
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.
