Prepare for a Trip That Will Change Your Life
Weekend Missions believes in the transformational power of helping those in need, building community, and staying true to God's Word. Though our missions are conducted through a Christian ministry, we welcome anyone with a heart to serve others. Whether you're a young professional, a family, or a retiree, our trips are designed to give you a fulfilling experience in just one weekend!
Typical mission trips are a huge time commitment, expensive, and not practical for the average person. Weekend Missions believes that accessibility is critical when it comes to serving communities and building faith, which is why all of our trips are less than $150 per person with a four-hour drive time from Phoenix, AZ. Not only do participants get to experience the ways of another culture, but they get to serve others, make a difference, and lead people to Christ.
Trips last about three days (Friday morning through Sunday late afternoon), but the experience could very well change your life! Weekend Missions is currently involved in dozens of projects in Puerto Penasco, also known as Rocky Point, a favorite vacation spot for people in Arizona and surrounding States.
Many Weekend Mission volunteers are not trained in a specific trade, although we welcome plumbing, electrical, or carpentry specialists. Those without specific skills will be trained on the job with a project manager or someone specializing in a necessary trade. Sometimes a Weekend Missions project is as simple as painting a wall or a fence!
The volunteer below is digging a trench for a new water line at the home of the director of the Rocky Point Women's Shelter. Imagine living in a home with little running water! Later, Weekend Missions hopes to complete a bathroom at this home.
Across town, another volunteer helps to complete a new room at the home of a needy resident.
Many of the citizens live in poverty, and most exist in hovels they call home, often put together with leftover building materials. Indoor plumbing is a luxury for most homes, and electricity is often spotty or non-existent. Air conditioning is rare, and many homes lack a refrigerator. Very few have washers and dryers.
Lodging accommodations for Weekend Mission volunteers are at the WM Villa Granada. While Weekend Missions cannot guarantee a specific accommodation for any given volunteer, consideration is given for those with special needs.
Those who drive a vehicle into Mexico are required to purchase Mexican Auto Insurance (it is the law in Mexico, just like here in the United States). Even if American insurance covers travel into Mexico, it is wise to purchase a Mexican Insurance policy.
Cancellation & Refund Policy
Refund requests must be received no later than 6:00 PM on the Sunday prior to trip departure. No refund requests will be accepted afterward. For lodging, the first night's stay is required to hold a reservation and becomes a non-refundable deposit.
