Esperanza Mission Trip

Annual Esperanza Mission Trip with the College of Wooster

Pictured above is our 2017 group at the end of the week.  The houses are made of cement block that the families make prior to our arrival.  The picture below is the same house once finished and painted.

In the evenings and weekend we keep busy visiting many places to help us learn about the Mexican culture.  We typically visit:   a girls orphanage, Casa d…
