See video below to prep for last year’s trip & still helpful info even for 2023’s trip…
Mission Trips flying to Yucatán, Mexico
Yucatán Peninsula is in the southeast part of Mexico. We will be flying in and staying at a hotel and then working with a Christian ministry in Cancun. Just a few miles past the tourist locations are people that are overlooked and in great need. We want to help and minister the love of Jesus to them.
We know a family with two boys from Pennsylvania that have lived at this Christian ministry and have been hosting numerous groups for over 15 years and have never had any safety concerns and have seen great ministry success there. EGP took a team this past July and had an awesome mission trip.
We will be doing outreaches and 3 days of VBS for about 100 children in Mexico.
Be a part of this team where we’ll also be performing dramas, leading worship, praying for many and putting on an Encounter Night. Supplies will be gathered for the many that are in need.
You can be a part of reaching those that need the truth and love of Jesus.
After a week of ministry, we’ll wrap things up by celebrating God’s creation on the beautiful Caribbean beach and snorkeling with the amazing fishes.
Flights closer to the trip will cost more due to flight increase. Otherwise when done well in advance, most of the trips depending on your flight & how thrifty you are with your meals and could be anywhere from $1,600 to $1,950 for everything total.
One day we will have a fun excursion. Maybe take a boat to a nearby island, Isla Mujeres. We may have some that choose opt out and not to do the snorkel boat tour and just shop around the island, which can also be a way to save money.)
Breakdown is …
1. FLIGHTS from DFW usually average about $700 – $800 for July.
* Hurry to get early group rate, may be under $600. If special is still going on, pay us the $100 deposit and lock into the deal (currently as of Nov. 22nd, it’s $565). Then pay us the remaining $465 by March 1st, 2023.
Note that the longer you wait, the higher the prices could go. So register asap to get our airline group rate plan locked in. Otherwise you’ll have to book & pay your regular rate flight directly in full at that time on your own. We meet at the DFW airport on that Sat. 3 hours before departure. The terminal and gate # are t.b.a.
2. Hotel, all gas & transportation, day to island – You’ll pay EGP $850 to cover these. Nice hotel so lodging won’t be “roughing it”. Watch video of hotel here.
3. All MEALS & snacks – bring that $100 to $200 with you (card or cash) Our hotel breakfast buffet is only about $7. See other meal options for when we’re at hotel (prices in pesos) see menu here. Also there a coffee shop on site open 24/7 . Meals when we’re out average about $10. If you are looking for the cheapest option and want to save money you could also bring granola bars and protein bars in place of some meals or just order cheaper food FYI.
We’re looking at the best options for our excursion. If we visit Isla Mujeres and it’s beach we’ll be surrounded by beautiful turquoise water, you can choose to shop and go on a snorkel tour & explore the sea-life. (You can opt out of that if you don’t want to snorkel, let us know via email and also make a note of top of your registration please.)
NOTE – There’s 3 required Prep & Prayer meetings. There will usually be one in May, one in June & one in July and are typically from 6-8:30pm. (If you’re not local /out of state, make sure to connect for live Zoom or we have option for videos to be uploaded.)
See one way that families are being helped there…
They have ended the Covid testing to reenter the U.S. back in like May 2022. Thank You Jesus.
Here’s a video someone made that shows Isla Mujeres, where we may visit one day.
