MISSIONAL JOURNEYS

March Teen Staff Trip Information

This March, for the second time, Teen Staff have the opportunity to go on a missional journey together to Croc, Mexico. Croc is a low income, fast growing, community on the outskirts of Monterrey, Mexico where Youthfront started an after-school program more than 15 years ago. Today, this program is led by locals and provides kids in Croc with fun activities and additional classroom time.

Students who have gone to Croc in the past have come back changed.  They tend to be more compassionate and generous, have an expanded worldview, a deeper love for people and a stronger desire to see God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

These trips will include opportunities to not only slow down but we will also serve side by side with friends old and new, hang out with kids from the after-school program, get to know people in the community, time to discuss our faith and cross-cultural experiences, road trip adventures, and delicious food (lots of tacos!!!). We are excited for the students involved in our Teen Staff program to experience another life-transforming experience with other Teen Staff they serve beside throughout the summer.

It is not uncommon to leave Croc wondering if you made a difference in the lives of those you meet, but you know without a doubt that you have grown and changed because of the new relationships you’ve made.

“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time.  But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”-Lilla Watson
