TIJUANA MISSION NEWSLETTER - November 2016


UPCOMING PROJECTS - Volunteer Opportunities!!!


EPIPHANY TRIP 2016 - Sunday January 17, 2016
Father Travers and the group of volunteers will meet at 5:30 a.m. at 800 S. Milliken, Ontario, CA 91761. Packets with directions and relevant information will be distributed as volunteers arrive. We will be leaving at 6:00 a.m. and heading south on the 15 freeway to the 805 south. We will exit on Bonita Rd. prior to entering Mexico. When you turn right at this exit, you will be able to get insurance for the day, fill up on gas and purchase snacks at the Deli and Liquor store. If you would prefer to purchase insurance prior to the trip, you can check with your car insurance agency on various policies or shop online to save time. It is highly recommended that everybody purchases insurance prior to entering Mexico, however. Please be sure to bring your passport on the trip as well. If you plan to attend, please send an email to tijuanamission@yahoo.com to let us know how many people and vehicles you plan to bring. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you all on the morning of Sunday, January 17th to help the people of La Morita, Tijuana!

The mission of Tijuana Mission Outreach Foundation is to help in multiple ways the impoverished people of La Morita, Tijuana, Mexico who are frozen in place.  Gifts of food, clothing, buildings and emergency funds are our primary means of help.  A smile of appreciation for a loaf of bread is a powerful encouragement to strive to do a lot more.  This is a powerful opportunity for Americans to see real poverty first hand.  Walking down the dusty road; seeing what people call home; seeing their water supply in the blue barrels at the corner of their “houses”; people cooking outside; the outhouses (most open to the stars); the hand-washed clothes hanging on the line; the exposed electrical wires running along the ground are a real eye-opener.  This evokes appreciation, sympathy, and generosity.
