TWO TRIP OPTIONS FOR GO MEXICO!
WHY. We GO because that’s what Jesus did. He left where He was (Heaven) and to came to us (on Earth) in order to give us life. While He was here He showed us how to live… by loving people. When His work was done and He was heading back to Heaven He challenged us to GO and help people become like Him. Jesus said to go to Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Think of it like this… GO to your neighborhood, your home town, your region and all over the world. We are meant to GO to all of these places. Sometimes we GO to areas close to home. GO Mexico happens to be a trip to the ends of the earth. So, we GO because Jesus did and we want to be like Him.
WHEN. March 24-March 31. Times TBA
