High schoolers sought for February Huguenot mission trip to U.S.-Mexico border; apply by Nov. 15

To the editor:

On behalf of Huguenot Memorial Church, I’m writing to the Pelham Examiner to get the word out about a mission trip for high schoolers that the church is planning. It is scheduled for the school vacation week that runs from Feb. 17 to Feb. 24, aka Mud Week.

Huguenot has a long history of sponsoring trips both domestically and internationally that give local youth insight into the world beyond Pelham, and we look forward to the opportunity to do this again!

The trip is an immersion experience at the Mexico-U.S. border under the auspices of Frontera de Cristo, a Presbyterian border ministry operating in the sister cities of Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, and Douglas, Arizona, that has been in operation since 1984. It is an opportunity for local youth to get a firsthand look at life at the border and at how Frontera de Cristo works together on projects including after-school centers, community gardens and a cooperative fair trade plus coffee business.

The trip will be chaperoned by Huguenot staff and local adults and will have a service component for those looking for that type of experience, but there will be other components as well.

We’d like to hear from prospective participants by Nov. 15. If you’d like to know more, I am the co-chair of the Huguenot mission committee. Email me at [email protected].
