Hi Family and Friends. THANK YOU for such overwhelming support! In just one day of fundraising we were able to cover the costs of material for our service project... More than a $1000. Now we move in two phase two: scholarships for our student volunteers.

We are embarking on an exciting journey into Mexico to live solidarity with the people of Monterrey. Pope Francis has convoked a Jubilee Year of Mercy in which he has encouraged all people of good will to reach out to the poor and needy in an act of mercy and love.

"Sometimes we are tempted to be that kind of Christian who keeps the Lord’s wounds at arm’s length. Yet Jesus wants us to touch human misery, to touch the suffering flesh of others. Whenever we do so, our lives become wonderfully complicated and we experience intensely what it is to be a people, to be part of a people." - Pope Francis

The dates of our trip are from March 5th to the 12th. We will be working at a school for underpriveleged boys in Monterrey called "Ciudad de los Niños", teaching English and helping to prepare a new sports field for the students. We will also spend time visiting some of the poorer slums of Monterrey, accompanying the families there with our affection and solidarity, and providing them with some basic food.

In the first day of our fundraising campaign, we surpassed our inital goal of $1000! Your support has been overwhelmingly positive. THANK YOU! Most of that money will go towards supplies for the various projects (teaching material, shovels, building supplies, etc.).

We are now proposing a new goal of $2500 to help defray the cost of travel of our students. Any donation you make now will be used as scholarships for these volunteers. They are so grateful for your support.
