(This trip is active for 2019.)
This team, comprised of juniors and seniors, will be ministering to orphan, abused, and abandoned children at a boy’s home in Ixtlahuacan called Hope House. The home is an outreach program of Shepherd’s Heart Ministries, a registered non-profit organization based in Tennessee. Our hosts are long-term missionaries serving in Mexico. The team will be working on building and maintenance projects at the home, leading a Vacation Bible School (VBS) program, and running an afternoon sports camp for the boys at the home.
By serving as the hands and feet of God, we will strive to bring joy into the lives of the orphans at Hope House. We will work to improve the property, to provide the boys with better physical comforts, but we know the most important goal is to build a relationship with each boy and share God’s love with him. We want the boys to know that they are loved, prayed for, and accepted for who they are. Through this service trip, participating TKA students and staff will see a culture and people in need and be changed to see more clearly through Jesus’ eyes.
