The Abbotsford Vineyard Church has a long-standing tradition of family-friendly missions to Mexico every Christmas season.
AVC has a deep relationship with La Hermosa Church and the surrounding community of Primo Tapia, Mexico. We partner with La Hermosa in running Casa de Luz, a Children’s Centre for impoverished single-parent families and children at risk. During our time there we will love on the children and serve alongside the staff at Casa de Luz, work on a construction project, deliver food and gift hampers throughout the local villages, participate in a hot meal program, and host community events.
There are many opportunities to pray for people, spend time with kids at CDL, play games and soccer with children and teens in the village, and attend a church service. There are many opportunities for children and teens to be involved. We have seen families grow together as they see their children reaching out in God’s love and spending this special season outside of the normal North American context.
We would love to see everyone who calls AVC their home participate in a mission to Mexico.
As we send teams, we have seen much value in the time spent together, learning from each other, working together, honouring one another, and growing together as we serve as a body. Time together as a team is a critical aspect of this trip, therefore we host team meetings prior to and during the trip to best equip and support each team member. We worship together, spend lots of time in prayer, and share our hearts with one another. Please plan on being part of these planning and preparation meetings if you join a team!
