Casa de Luz
Casa de Luz is in Primo Tapia, Baja, Mexico, a village located about an hour south of Tijuana. Abbotsford Vineyard Church has sent teams to La Hermosa Church in Primo Tapia for the past 12 years. In August 2012 they completed a child care centre to care for children of single mothers. Providing childcare allows mothers to work and keep their family together. It also removes the fear and hazards of leaving young children at home unattended while they work.
Mountain Park Community Church participates in sending a short-term missions team to Casa De Luz annually. This trip is intergenerational and everyone is welcome, both families and single people. We serve in practical ways such as playing with and teaching children, praying for the staff or whatever needs the facility may have.
On past trips we have given groceries away, held a neighbourhood party, and hosted “kub-kar” races for children to name a few. What we actually do in Mexico is finalized when we have our team in place and have time to listen to God as we consult with Toni and Erin Santos, our mission partners who lead Casa de Luz.
Our 2019 Trip is underway. If you’d like to see updates from our team, check out our Facebook Page!
