Water of Life sends 20+ teams to Mexico each year to serve at Agua De Vida located in Ciudad Morelos, 25 minutes south of Yuma, Arizona.  Agua de Vida is both a church and a safe, secure and loving home for 20+ orphans aged 0-18 who have sought refuge due to less fortunate circumstances. Mario and Veronica Santos are the host parents at the orphanage and their mission is to provide an atmosphere that builds a child’s faith in God and grows them in Godly character. Water of Life teams serve the orphanage by performing children's activities and ministries that include Bible stories, dramas and games.  Teams may also help with ongoing construction or work projects to support on-site staff.  Mario and Veronica have a heart for the surrounding community so our teams often assist with neighborhood relief projects, evangelism and community outreaches.  Teams may also stay to help run various parts of their church services assisting with children’s ministry, worship or preaching. 

Mexico teams are a fun and safe way for you and your family to serve and grow together. Mexico teams provide an opportunity to teach your children about serving others, being selfless and help them to develop a heart for outreach at a young age. 

Serving in Mexico is an excellent first step if you have never been out of the country for reasons other than vacation or business.  It can help make taking the step to serving on an overseas team a little easier and open your heart and eyes to how others live.  It is helpful to experience a different culture, gain new experiences and live in conditions unlike your own home before serving on a longer Global Outreach team.  Mexico trips also cost less and are a shorter time commitment which makes going on a Mexico team a great first step towards serving overseas.

Many ministries at Water of Life also partner with Global Outreach to send a team from their ministry to Agua de Vida.  Each ministry group works with the Global Outreach Department to coordinate their trip and plan what type of ministry their team will do.  A few of the ministries that serve regularly in Mexico are Fusion, Pure, Activate, Positively Engaging and School of Ministry. Connect with each ministry to see when their specific trip dates are.
