Come with us on mission to Mexico City with missionaries Craig Johring and Danny Leger of Hope of the Poor!
We are planning full immersion into Our Lady of Guadalupe and her poorest of the poor at the Mexico City homeless women's shelter and the city dump where over 1000 people live and work.To fortify our mission to see Christ in the poor we will visit the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe each day while in Mexico City. The basilica is home to the Tilma of Juan Diego occupying the living image of our mother, our Lady of Guadalupe.
Our accommodations in Mexico City are at the Concepcioniatas Convent located in the shadow of the Shrine. This historic convent was founded shortly after the apparitions of Our Lady in the early 1500's. It has humble, clean accommodations and excellent food prepared by the sisters.
We will then board a plane Friday morning to decompress in Cabo San Lucas for two days. Craig and Danny will join us in Cabo for a much deserved respite and to build relationship!
There is the option of skipping Cabo for those interested only in Mexico City. Please contact the trip organizer for more details.
A couple of notes:
We have room for 40 missionaries (20 for Mission & Los Cabos and 20 for Mission only). The total cost for each option is as follows and includes your one-time $500 donation to Hope of the Poor.
$1950 - 6 day trip (mission and Los Cabos)
$1060 - 4 day trip (mission only)
Families are encouraged and welcome, however, this will not be a good trip for young children.
As testified by our missionaries on our maiden voyage last year, this is a life changing event!
