My friend Andrew and I, along with a dozen other students attending the University of Dallas, will journey to Monterrey, MX once again this spring break! We will provide service to a school of underprivileged boys and girls, called "Ciudad de Los Ninos."

Hola Amigos!

This spring break, we embark once again on our annual Monterrey Service Trip, March 11th - 17th! My good friend Andrew and I, along with 12 more friends attending the University of Dallas, will journey to Mexico to serve at an underprivileged school for boys and girls, called Ciudad de Los Ninos. Last year, one of our services was to paint their soccer stands, something very close to them all, as you can imagine, haha. We actually got to challenge them in a soccer match (which we ended up losing...) We also got to share dinner at the house of some families enrolled in the school, which was the most heartening by far. Those are just a few highlights! This year, we may be lucky enough to work at their second campus in Topochico, which is located in a much poorer area.

We chose to help 'Ciudad de Los Ninos' in particular because it serves those families that are most in need, and helps the family as a whole. Last year, we learned all about the school's history and the values underpinning its practices.

Get this! There are three requirements for each applicant:

1) The parents must make below a certain yearly income (something very meager)

2) The parents must both commit to receiving formation classes (virtues, marriage, parenting)

3) Each child must show a determined effort towards improvement and hard work over the years

From these policies, we immediately could tell the school targets those families in real need and helps them improve together as one family unit.

I am very excited to go back this year!

First off, I'd like to ask each of you for your prayers for this trip. We have the chance to touch the lives of many of these children and parents. Also, prayers for each of us. Many of these guys will take big steps in their own spiritual journey, I'm sure of it!

Of course, there are a number of expenses, largely the drive down and room & board. Andrew and I would deeply appreciate any contribution you are able to make!

Muchas gracias,

Nick and Andrew
