A different world exists just three hours south of SeaCoast Grace, across the Mexican border near the cities of Tijuana and Tecate. In the hills outside the city, a steady flow of economic migrants run into an emotional and physical wall in their journey north. Unable to cross into the United States, they build makeshift homes in desperately poor shantytowns without water, electricity or sewer systems. Often thought of as a temporary stop, these communities become a permanent home for thousands. Though poverty is severe, God is at work bringing hope and transformation to the region. SeaCoast Grace has sponsored trips to Mexico for nearly two decades, building homes, blessing families and changing lives.
We have two amazing trips to Mexico you can participate in! Mexico Clásico has been builidng houses in Girasoles for years and continues to be a blessing to the community and those on the trip. Mexico Nuevo works in Tijuana with a local pastor to transform the community through whatever means possible; building the church, feeding the kids, teaching VBS and reaching out to the community.
