Acuna, Mexico

November 16-20, 2018

Who: The trip is open to everyone in the church.  Families are encouraged  to sign up and go together.  We hope this will be an intergenerational trip where young and old serve side by side (we recommend children be at least 8 years old).

What:  The Lakeway Church is partnering with a mission organization called Casas Por Cristo.   Our team will build homes for families in Acuna, Mexico.  This will be a hands-on trip where every member of our team will participate in the construction from start to finish.   Casas Por Cristo works with local church pastors to identify families in need.   Our work will be connected to a local church on the ground in Acuna.

Where:  Acuna, Mexico is a border city across from Del Rio, TX – approximately a four-hour drive from Austin.  Casas Por Cristo has a proven track record of hosting teams to Acuna.   Our group will we be housed in a local church in Acuna, Mexico.

Why:  Sacrificial outreach is one of the marks of The Lakeway church.  We believe every follower of Jesus is called to love and serve others in Jesus’ name.  Stepping out in faith to serve others will have a transformational impact on your life.  Not only will we be helping families in Acuna, but we will be deepening relationships with each other.
