Be Part of a Team
Children of Hope establishes numerous short-term and long-term mission trips to involve Canadians in a place of need. The purpose and vision of sending Canadians to Mexico remains to participate in the tangible building up of orphanages, to participate in the development of children’s programs, and ultimately: to invest in the children’s lives. This is a way for you, and others on your team, to become involved in the lives of children by spending time at one of the ministries and assist in a building project.
What You Can Expect As a Children of Hope Team Member
- Although each team looks a little different according to their particular needs and desires, there are also many similarities in the work a team does. A typical day would start with a morning devotional, morning and afternoon work projects, spending time with the children, and occasionally touring the historic downtown or spending time with another ministry under Children of Hope, all followed by a team debrief.
- Each team has different dynamics and skills, and we try our best to fit those! For example, if multiple team members are skilled in electrical, plumbing or concrete, the projects will most likely be shaped to best use the skills of the team.
- The kitchen staff will be cooking 3 delicious meals each day for the team which exposes teams to a little taste of Mexico.
- The cost of sending a team can vary depending on the price of flights. On average, teams can expect to pay around $2000 CAD per person, which includes flights, transportation in Mexico, food, accommodations, construction materials, and Children of Hope T-Shirts. Teams and individuals are encouraged to fundraise and let other people know of the missions work they plan to do!
This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of the Great Commission (Mark 16:15). He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation”.
