BUMCY Mission Trip 2016
Juntos Servimos in Los Fresnos, TX
Sunday, June 12 - Saturday, June 18
We will be travelling to far South Texas (just past South Padre Island) to San Benito, TX. We are working with the organization Juntos Servimos. We will be working on renovating a parsonage and a church. There is rotten siding to replace; scraping, priming, and painting to be done; and some interior finishing to be done on the church. Last year, we tied down a house and built and painted a number of benches. We are asking youth to pay $100 each to help cover the costs of this trip. The $100 will cover everything except snacks/souvenirs on the trip.
This trip will be a 10-12 hour drive. We will be leaving at 8am on Sunday, and we will return around 7:30pm 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, maybe try some local fun spots, and spend some peaceful time together in the evenings. On Friday, we will spend the day at the South Padre Island Schlitterbahn.
We will either be staying at FUMC San Benito. 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.
