oaxaca partners in mission

Oaxaca 2022 is on!

This will be a different sort of short term mission trip, Sort of like Short Term Missions 101! Think of it as a trip for the whole church family. We will be in the central valley of Oaxaca, where it is much cooler than where we have gone before. Our primary job will be to prepare Rancho Tunillo for Adventures in Life summer camps. Essentially an intro to missions and how AIL works in Oaxaca. The ranch is our base and from there all our ministries, from church building to medical clinics to water filter outreaches, flow into the indigenous communities of the state. 

There will be work that everyone can do. From general clean-up, light construction, painting, yard work, preparing craft projects for the coming camps, work with our kids, and work with animals. There will also be opportunities to learn more about Oaxacan history and culture. 

The dates for the trip are June 22nd through July 4th. Cost is $900 per person 16 and up, $200 for ages 6 to 16, and 5 and under no charge. In addition there will be airfare and incidentals. Airfare will run $885 (here's the link to the Facebook post with details). We don’t want anyone to be unable to go due to cost, so if cost is an issue, contact Pastor Ric. We can handle a maximum of 30 people so act fast to reserve your space. To reserve a spot or for questions email Gordon Mallon at gord.mallon@gmail.com

Here is a flyer with all the info on it and the registration form.  Registration is due March 6th with $100 deposit to hold your spot.  We only have 30 spots available so get in your registration early!

Scholarships are available, as well! We don't want anyone to miss out due to financial burdens! Please fill out this Scholarship form and returned it to the church office at office@cedarmillchristumc.org. 

This is a great opportunity to be fig leaves in our world!

Partnering in Christ

In past centuries, "mission" was thought of as spreading the work of Christ from one group of people to another. But we know that God is already at work in all places, and so mission really is "from everywhere to everywhere." That is why we have partnered for long-term health and blessing with Adventures in Life Ministry and Inglesia Baptista Palestine in San Matteo Del Mar, Oaxaca, Mexico. Together, we have rebuilt church buildings, provided millions of liters of fresh water, hosted health clinic, and strengthened love and relationships across several cultures!

Thank you for partnering in mission!
