Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos - NPH
An Amazing Catholic Orphanage
Our 2017 Mexico Mission Trip to NPH Orphanage led by Mike Vievering for age 16 and older, including young adults, will be July 13-19, 2017 (a Thursday through Wednesday). We have room for 38 on the trip, including the chaperones. This will be our 14th trip! About 500 children live at this Catholic orphanage. The cost for this year's trip is $1300 for participants and $1000 for chaperones--a bit more than last year because of higher flight costs.
This trip focuses on relational ministry rather than on work projects. We provide a morning VBS program for about 100 of the children and join in a variety of daily activities with the many children in the other parts of the day. Our group also joins in a variety of prayer experiences together throughout the trip. In addition to our time at the main orphanage site in Miacatlán, we do a side trip to visit students at their high school in Cuernavaca on Saturday, plus we visit the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City on our way to the airport on the final day. This Basilica is at the site of Mary's appearances to St. Juan Diego and it is the place that displays his cloak bearing the miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Registration began with our introductory meetings on Nov. 20 and 21.

We look forward to another great trip!
