Every summer our Youth spend a week in Primo Tapia, Mexico serving alongside our friends and partners at Casa de Luz Ministries and La Hermosa Church. Abbotsford Vineyard has been sending down teams to this area for over a decade and we have developed a warm relationship with the community. In the past few years, we have established a permanent base for teams to stay which is right in the heart of the village.
Teams serve at Casa de Luz Children’s Centre, often putting on Vacation Bible School programs or dance/sports camps. We also host community events such as fairs, movie nights, barbecues, etc. We will deliver food hampers for families in need and will take on some construction projects, often working on homes of single moms that need repair or work projects at Casa de Luz. There is plenty to do!
We attend a church service, eat some amazing Mexican food prepared by CDL cooks and visit the local souvenir shops, bakery and ice cream shops. It’s a fabulous week together. Young adults are also invited to join us to mentor and support our youth.
Next trip: June 28 – July 5, 2019.
