CommunitiesSpending time at San Juan Bosco Orphanage, Tecate, Mexico
August 3rd, 2015
(7/12/15 to 7/18/15) All the reports are coming back that World Servant Leaders Vicki and Mark Kolsrud’s did a great job leading the latest trip at San Juan Bosco. They had families from all over the United States with the oldest over 75 and the youngest person on the team 8 years old. World Servants has had a long term relationship with the Director and his staff. Currently they have 40 plus boys and girls calling the orphanage their home.
Our focus on this trip was to help paint the girls dorm, paint the front gate that surrounds the orphanage and also pour a large slab of concrete that will help keep the dirt from getting tracked into the dorms when it rains. The team also focused on having sports camp with the kids each afternoon. On the day off the team visited different areas of Tecate and also hosted a Bar-B-Q for the staff and kids. Special relationships were built and God blessed everyone as they served each other. We look forward to returning and spending more time with the kids. It’s a blessing to be able to move in for a week and be part of what God is doing there. Thank you San Juan Bosco, we love spending time with you.
