For the Mexico project, AIT Mission partners with Ensenada Project in building churches and homes to improve the lives of those in the villages surrounding the metropolitan Ensenada area.
The people that live in these communities on average earn less than $15 a day and yet the cost of living is not that different from the USA. To build a simple 2 room home with no indoor plumbing on a small 30 x 30 parcel of land will cost up to $7000 USD (including land costs). In many families both the husband and wife work, and even this is seldom enough so they will also pull their older children from school and have them work as well for survival.
Ensenada Project is a ministry that exist to serve in the community alongside the people of Ensenada, as well as other missionaries. In partnering with Ensenada Project, AIT Mission hopes to introduce an alternative solution in building houses for those in need and to encourage more people to take parts in God's Great Commission.
Ensenada Project is a family run ministry started with the Romano family. Rick and Tammie Romano are missionaries with the C&MA who serve alongside you during your time in Mexico. They have worked and studied hard to understand the language, culture and history of Mexico. Their goal is to serve you, and the people of Mexico, in a way that is effective and genuin. Currently, they have 15 years experience in working with short-term mission groups and are in their 4th year as the site leaders of the Ensenada site.
"We exist to incorporate short-term mission groups in the Great Commission of reaching the unreached and to strengthen the churches in Mexico and the United States."
While Mission 4 Homes focuses primarily on the construction projects in Ensenada communities, we also welcome short-term mission teams to join us and the Ensenada Project in the following ministries:
-VBS: Visit different churches in the community
to share Christ with children.
-Prayer Ministry: Pray with families of community
Other ministries include youth events and clothes and food distributions, according to the need that the Mexican pastors recognize within their communities.
We provide short-term mission experiences for youth short-term mission teams, adult mission teams, family mission teams, church mission teams, or mixed mission teams.
Volunteers must be willing to raise personal financial support (covering living expenses, health insurance, travel, ministry and personal money, etc.) Group fees cover the following: food, lodging, construction materials for your work projects, tools for work projects, most ministry & media equipment for your ministries, puppets and puppet stage, boom boxes, CDs in Spanish, coordination of all your ministries and work projects, Spanish translation help, and our onsite presence and assistance at all times.
