University Ministries

Mexico: Oaxaca

Summer Break – $1,300

About the Trip

Students are invited to work with Foundations For His Ministry (FFHM) as they care for abandoned children in a loving group home environment. Volunteers will be part of the daily operations of the home, and will be asked to do everything from preparing/serving meals, playing with kids and exploring Oaxaca and its cultural sites. Most students who go prepare to return a second and third time—there is so much love in this holy place.

Student Testimony 

“I participated on this trip May 2018 and I cannot already wait to go back. I feel like I learned so much during this trip and it can really help me to continue to develop spiritually. I also built great relationships with the staff and the children here while also being able to serve and learn more about my faith. I also got to see every member on our team this year grow as an individual and it’s something I would love to see again.”
