    What to expect on a service trip to Baja Mexico
    JOY. SADNESS. HAPPINESS. HUGS.

    What to expect on a service trip to Baja Mexico…..

    From start to finish, you will be exposed to the realities of an abandoned child’s experience.

    Although you may be covered with dust and sweat by the end, you will also be filled with love and compassion!

    We encourage you to come with a flexible spirit.

    We walk almost a mile with donations across the border, so it is necessary you are physically able to make this part of the journey.

    We are taken by chartered buses and/or vans to the orphanage.

    At the orphanage, we have lunch, do an art project, and play sports with the children.

    Most children are seeking positive attention, so even if you don’t speak Spanish, be proactive and engage children in activities. Translators will assist you, and the activity leaders appreciate any assistance you can provide with unloading donations, serving meals, and cleaning up.

    At the orphanage, we ask that you stay with the group at all times and never be alone with a child.

    Please do not hand a child your phone or candy that has not been approved by the trip leader.

    Finally, please be aware that border lines can be long and range between 30-90 minutes on the return home.
