Casa de la Esperanza Mission Trip 2023

Join other members of the Knox community for a one-day trip to visit the Casa de la Esperanza orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico, on Saturday, October 21st.  We meet at the church at 7 a.m. and generally arrive back sometime between 9 and 10 p.m.   We prepare and serve lunch to the 40-50 children at the Casa, and lead a program of music, crafts, games, and Bible teaching.  We also get to hear from the Casa staff about current joys and challenges, and ways Knox can partner in their ministry.  Anyone age five and above can participate, but children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  Given the increased wait time at the border, all participants 16 years or older are strongly encouraged to get a US Passport card – which allows us to use the Ready Lanes.  To apply for a passport card, click here.  To learn more about the Ready Lanes, click here.  If you already have a US passport, you can get the Passport card by mail for an application fee of $30 – but we recommend applying for it soon to avoid expedited service costs.  Those under 16 do not need a passport card to use the Ready Lanes.  Cost for attending the Casa trip is $35 a person or $75 per family, plus money for a dinner stop on the way back.  Click here to sign up.
