Not only will you help change someone’s earthly life – you’ll impact their eternal life. By being involved in missions, you can take part in God’s plan to reach the nations.
The camp is located at 7,000 feet elevation and very dry most of the year. Green areas add visual life but need built in small sections to conserve water. Even though small, these create so much color to the dry surroundings. Building these small, manageable areas is important to the overall look of an attractive campus for the camp and Bible Institute. If you enjoy landscaping and design, then this trip is for you.
The ACE Christian school on property is growing and in need of more room. It spans grades 1 to 12 with 50% of the students coming from the local community. A new attractive play ground would be an added blessing for the school and camp. The school is located beside the camp's main auditorium in the center of the camp property.
These areas will add to the appearance of the already beautiful property. What people see as a first impression is so important and sets the attitudes for what is to come. There are other projects as well: staff housing, a new Bible Institute facility, Bible Institute student dorms and much more.
You'll fly about 2.5 hours from Houston or Dallas TX into Queretaro International Airport which is just 20 minutes from the camp property. Flights arrive after lunch and in the evening. Departing flights are in the morning and after lunch.
Camp housing is in nice dorms all with ceramic tile floors and bathrooms. Colorful metal bunk beds give plenty of room for a good night's rest. These are very nice facilities.
The road infrastructural in this part of Mexico is in excellent condition. Queretaro is a modern city with over 2 million people.
Do you like Mexican food? Spicy tacos? Great burritos? You should join this trip to taste the real deal! They'll make the sauce as hot as you care to try but be careful what you ask for! 😉 You'll appreciate the care given by the WOL staff to make this a trip to remember.
No visa is required to enter Mexico but you must have a valid passport.
What to Bring
Tools are supplied so bring gloves, a sun hat and maybe some minor tools. Your host will supply a list of needed things when the team is closer to leaving. The electric voltage in Mexico is the same as the USA so all your electrical things will work.
You'll need sheets for a twin bed, a light blank, a small travel pillow and towels (you might consider leaving these for the staff when you return home). Take along personal items, your Bible, warmer clothes for the early morning and late evenings and you might want so snacks. Remember to pack your liquids in your check in luggage.
The temps are warm in the day and cool at night. You can work in shorts or long pants but best to dress in layers as temps change throughout the day.
These projects are designed for everyone to attend. A love for the Lord and a willingness to serve are what we are looking for. If you can do these things, you qualify!
Trip cost covers food, lodging, in-country transportation, background check, travel insurance plus $125 work funds and $80 host cost.

There is so much that can be done at the camp and all skills and talents are needed. There is room for the entire family to go along on this one. Work trips are great opportunities for grandparents to introduce their grand children to missions.
