Esperanza Mission Trip 2018 March 10-17, 2018
Saturday March 10, 2018 19 people from Trinity United Church of Christ and the College of Wooster will go to Tijuana Mexico for our annual Esperanza Mission trip.  We will fly to San Diego and rent vans to drive to Tijuana.  The family pictured above is the family whose home we worked on in 2017 and we will visit this week.  The other photo is our 2017 group photo at the Tijuana side of the border.

During the week we will spend Monday through Friday building houses with the Esperanza International organization.  This is the 9th joint trip with the College of Wooster and Trinity has been going to the mission trip since the mid 1990s.

We hope that you can follow us during the week as we will post daily in our blog - see the link below.  We've also included links to Esperanza's website, the College of Wooster and Trinity's.
