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 in Cancún and then working along with a Christian ministry. Just about 30 minutes past where most of the tourist locations are, there’s many people in Cuna Maya that are overlooked and in great need. We want to continue to help and minister the love of Jesus to them.
Our friend from Pennsylvania we’ve known for years has a family with two boys that have lived there 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. EGP has taken teams there the past couple of summers and have had some awesome mission trips. We do some ministry that is unique for them.
We will be doing house visit outreaches and 3 days of VBS for about 100 children in Mexico.
You can be a part of this team with a wide variety of ways to help based on your giftings and personality. We understand some are outgoing and like to be an “out front” person while others prefer to be “behind the scenes” and both are needed. There’s options to help perform dramas, lead worship, serving at outreaches, praying for many and helping in a different ways. We will be putting on an Encounter Night and 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 our week of ministry, we’ll wrap things up by enjoying God’s creation on the beautiful Caribbean beach and snorkeling with the amazing sea-life.
Total cost for everything last year was between $1,785 to $1,950. Get you are $150 deposit and registration form in by Wednesday, December 20. This will lock you in for our group flight at that current rate. SEE PAYMENT DUE DATES $$$
When you pay your deposit will determine the better deal for the flight which is a big factor. The closer we get to the trip, usually the plane ticket price continues to increase. Book in advance for a better deal and before the flight books up. Also another way to save money is being thrifty when buying your meals there.
One day we will have a fun excursion by taking a boat to a nearby island, Isla Mujeres. We may have some that choose to 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. Would need to notify us 2 months in advance.
Breakdown is …
1. FLIGHTS from DFW when bought well in advance are cheaper. Based on our past trips, the group tickets could range from $680 to those who bought later paid $835. Wait even longer and the prices can increase even more. (Special rate of $510 while supplies last of 1st batch of plane tickets, as of 12-19-23.)
* Need to pay EGP a $150 non-refundable flight deposit (separate from the later $100 registration deposit) to lock into this great deal. Then you don’t need to pay us the remaining cost of your flight until Sun. March 3rd, 2024 and another benefit is you’ll be sitting together with the group. WARNING – These group plane tickets are only while they last, meaning we will only have a certain amount of tickets with this special locked-in rate! Please make your deposit asap because you don’t want to risk not getting a group ticket and then the flight could fill up.
Note: Otherwise you’ll have to book & pay your regular rate flight directly on your own and pay in full at that time. 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 $895 to cover these. This is a nice hotel so lodging won’t be “roughing it” like in any of our past mission trips. Watch video of hotel here.
3. All MEALS & snacks – bring that $150 to $200 with you (card or cash) Our hotel offers an optional breakfast buffet (last year was only about $7). See other meal options for when we’re at hotel (prices are in pesos) see menu here. Also there’s a coffee shop with drinks, sandwiches, muffins, fruit cups, etc. on site at the hotel 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 by Sun. March 3rd also make a note on the top of your registration form 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 may have an option for videos to be uploaded.)
If an individual has not been on an EGP mission trip before and is not already well-known by E.G.P. leadership, they first need to apply by having someone fill out the evaluation below. The character evaluation form should be filled out & sent in by a spiritual leader like their senior pastor or youth pastor (Eval form here)
See one way that families are being helped there…
Hear from some that were on the past mission trip…
Here’s a video someone made that shows Isla Mujeres, where we have our beach trip.
