The City of Children is a children's home located in Ensenada, Mexico on the Baja Peninsula about two hours south of San Diego. It serves as a location to help children and families in need in the name of Jesus. Having been open for 50 years, the City of Children has spent 5 decades impacting the community for the Kingdom. Every summer they open their doors to groups who are invited to come and share the love of Jesus. The purpose of our visit is to be a friend and an example of Jesus to a child. Our kindness and attention may be the love that helps heal a broken heart. If you will reach out to the children, God will overflow your heart with blessings. When you serve a meal, give a gift or drive a nail, you are doing it for Jesus as well as a child.
It is a week-long trip. We will fly out of Nashville on Saturday, June 15 and return on Friday, June 21. While we are at the City of Children we will present a VBS each evening. We will find out our VBS theme in February.
During the day, we will be divided into groups that rotate between working inside the walls of the home, a group that will go out into the community serving through a work project, and a group that will spend time with the babies and toddlers. We will reunite for lunch, have time to play with the children(aka get beat at soccer), and have an evening meal together before our VBS time.
This is an excellent opportunity for first-time mission trippers and seasoned veterans as well. There is no doubt that you leave with your spiritual cup overflowing.
