We are glad to share with you the projects we were part of during our mission trip:
We commenced our mission by participating as volunteers in the World youth day in Panama. This event is celebrated every 3 years and was an initiative of Pope John Paul II to summon all young Christians from around the world. It has its origin in the March of Christian reconciliation that took place in Rome in 1975.
We participated in the planning and preparation of the event, we were in Panama for 3 weeks.

To continue with our trip we dedicated some time to honor our countries of origin.
We helped a project named “Mission of Friendship – “Los amiguitos” in Merida, Yucatan.
This center provides care for children ranging in age from 6 weeks to 3 years whose mothers must work to support their families. Children receive meals and participate in educational activities in a loving atmosphere.

We had the honor of serving in the Holy Land where there are many families and individuals who suffer from food insecurities or the inability to buy the food they need. This can have a dramatic effect on a person’s life and lead to depression, impede learning opportunities and the search for gainful employment.
In cooperation with the Department of Welfare and Social Services of Tel Aviv, the food distribution center supplies bi-monthly food packages to some 350 families in need to combat the negative side effects of food insecurity.
We participated in this program through the GOECO organization in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

We had the honor to volunteer in Ologapo, Philippines with the Missionaries of Charity (from Mother Theresa), the work they do is admirable, they have a house with around 45 elders who receive love and food. Additionally, the missionaries go every weekend to visit different villages of the region to deliver medicines, food and to share the love of God with people.
We wanted to end our trip by thanking God for the opportunity to serve others in the world. We attended Hillsong conference in Australia. Hillsong is a church that has presence worldwide and is responsible for many people who have opened their heart to Jesus and have participated in his work.
