Currently slated for April 4-10, our trip to Mexico falls the week before Easter. This week is a holiday week in Queretaro, and falls on almost all NKY school Spring Breaks. We are inviting not just adults, but youth (HS) and families to come together, to minister to, serve with, and learn from our brothers and sisters in Christ in Queretaro.
Though we haven't announced a final number for the cost of the trip, the main expenses will be airfare (currently hovering around $900) and a passport (approx. $160 to secure). There will be some additional costs (food, souvenirs, supplies) but these will be minimal.
All going will be required to have a valid U.S. passport. There are several steps in securing a passport and a delay in getting one sent to you. If you are planning to go, please take steps to submit your passport request soon!
While in Queretaro, we will be doing several different things. This will be a 'people-oriented' mission, not necessarily a 'project-based' mission. We will interact with families and youth from the local sister church there, even being hosted by church families during our stay. We will have opportunity to be involved in evangelism, discipleship, and fellowship.
Queretaro is the second safest state in Mexico. It is a rapidly growing state, whose capital city of over 2 million people bears the same name. We will primarily focus our efforts in the city of Queretaro, but may also work with a missionary family who has planted a church in a more rural community about 30 mins away.
Please be in prayer about how you can be involved. We will need people going, people back home praying and financially supporting, and people filling in gaps while the team is away. How is God calling you to help?
