Due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone our entire 2020 domestic mission trip season to next year.
What a beautiful and unique mission experience we have in Ensenada! After flying to San Diego, your team will rendezvous with our experts on the ground and head across the border to Ensenada. Our team has streamlined the travel process to make it safe and efficient as we travel as a group.
When you serve in Ensenada, Mexico, you will have the chance to join Pastor Juan and Rosie in their ministry to provide a home and security for troubled boys. Their vision is to build a sustainable farm which will allow the boys’ home to be sustainable for room and board and will educate the boys in a specific trade, so they are equipped in the future.
You may help with community projects, work projects at the farm, block parties for the boys, prayer walks, and anything else that will encourage them and the boys that they are raising. We’ll also make sure you have a free afternoon to enjoy the beach!

Pastor Juan and Rosie have given their lives to helping rehabilitate abandoned boys through a group home, providing them with hope for a future. Their vision is to build a sustainable farm on the property in Santo Tomas. This would include chicken coops, pigs, tilapia farms, etc. This farm would allow there to be sustainable income to pay Pastor Juan and Rosie, allow the boys’ home to be sustainable for room and board and allow for further development into the desired home for troubled girls. The farm would also allow for teaching the boys a trade by educating them in trade skills that would allow them to have a future.

Most meals are covered as part of your registration, except for free days if you're serving in Alaska or Puerto Rico. Please see the detailed itinerary of your international trip for any exceptions.
Most meals will be provided by our ministry partners, who have been carefully trained to prepare safe and nutritious meals for our teams. You will get a taste of local food on all of our trips, and some locations will include American food as well.
While some mission trips are more physically strenuous than others, most international trips will include at least four 8-hour service days in hot and humid environments. Your group can work at the level of physical exertion with which they’re comfortable.
Your international mission trip covers gratuities for meals in restaurants that are included for the week. Gratuities for porters or housekeeping staff if you stay in a hotel during your trip are at your discretion. Airport porters who help with your bags will expect to be tipped $1-$2, and if you participate in a guided tour or fun activity on your free day, you may want to consider tipping your hired guide.
The safety of your group is a top priority for us, as we’re sure it is for you. In all the areas we serve, we take extra precautions to make sure you or your group is as safe as possible. Guided by our local, experienced ministry staff partners, we avoid situations that are inherently dangerous. We’re also proactive by choosing lodging facilities and transportation that are safe and reliable. Our International Mission Trip Advisor is glad to answer further safety questions.
