A Taking Water “Bootcamp”


Every year, we take a group of volunteers down to Mexico to build houses for families. In the community where we build, people live in hastily made shelters, with walls made of scraps, no locking doors, and roofs that are far from waterproof, nothing to keep the dangers of the world outside.  So every year we travel down there to build modest houses that allow these people to do things we take for granted, like locking their door and feeling safe from the elements.

This is the experience of Taking Water globally, but something happens after we come back, we find that our Taking Water jumps to the next level.  We feel empowered to help as we have never felt before.

Friends Church wants to invite you to be a part of this project and experience Taking Water globally.

The 2019 trip dates are March 23 – 31st. It is never to early to start planning for next year. (This is spring break for both Public and Catholic schools)

Take advantage of our early bird pricing by registering and making your trip deposit prior to Dec 9th. Trip cost after Dec 9th will increase by $300.00
