A Special Mission Trip to Oaxaca
Have you thought about participating in a mission trip to Mexico but have not found enough interest from the membership of your church to make up an entire mission team? Or for some other reason have you not been able to come to Mexico to experience what God is doing?
This November we are thinking of offering a mission trip for individuals to join together and make up a mission team to Oaxaca. You can make a difference in the life of the Covenant Church in Oaxaca.
The objective of the mission trip would be pre-school and grade school health screening. This would include vision testing, hemoglobin testing, height and weight and physical exams. Nutrition talks and dental hygiene are also a possibility. There might even be the opportunity to do some adult health screening in marginalized areas of Oaxaca.
We need a few doctors, nurses, and dentists, but we are also willing to teach group participants how to do some of the screenings and to do other things needed for this type of mission trip, including taking photos, filling out forms, guiding children from screening area to screening area, entering data into the computer, etc.
This trip would be a very practical way to help meet the needs of the community while planting the seeds of the Gospel. You would be working together with Mexican Christians on this project. Approximate cost for this trip is $800, which includes hotel, food, transportation while in Mexico, water, sightseeing, donation to the ministry project, etc. The only costs not covered are your flights from the U.S. to Oaxaca and back. There is a maximum of 9 people for this mission trip.
There will also be the opportunity to participate in worship services at local Covenant churches and to learn more about what Covenant missionaries are doing in Oaxaca, as well as time to sightsee and to explore Mexican history and culture. Covenant missionaries will accompany the mission group at all times. No Spanish is necessary. Translators will be provided.
