WORK GROUP OPPORTUNITIES

HOW YOU AND YOUR GROUP CAN HELP US BRING THE KIDS HOME

Tapestries Of Life Ministries provides a "hands on mission" opportunity for businesses, communities, youth groups, mission groups, churches, individuals and families to take a VACATION WITH A PURPOSE through our work group weeks. Work groups are a vital part to our ministry. You and your team have an opportunity to be part of the construction of a home for homeless children. We need laborers of all ages and skills.

We provide transportation to and from the airport, 3 meals a day, clean drinking water, transportation to and from the orphanage, and a FUN time! (There is no need to bring your mosquito net.) We can accomidate groups over 60 people, but your group must have people who are willing to bring a sleeping bag and sleep on the floor.

WORK WEEK SCHEDULE

WHAT A WORK GROUP'S WEEK LOOKS LIKE

A typical work team is with us from Saturday-Saturday. The week starts with our staff picking you & your group up from the El Paso airport at whatever time you fly in. We load you and your group up in our 15 passenger ministry vans and take off to our outpost in Fabens, TX (30 minutes outside of El Paso.) We will have dinner as a group at the outpost. You will have plenty of time to unpack and settle in. Sunday includes church, orientation and free time. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday are work days. You cross into Mexico, work during the day, eat delicious Mexican cuisine, then return to the outpost in the evening to shower, have evening devotions, and a good night's rest. Wednesdays are Mercy Ministry days. We have breakfast at the outpost & orientation for what to expect. Then we load up in our vans, cross into Mexico, have an opportunity to go shopping at a local store. After shopping, we will then go to the community where you will get to distribute food to families in need. On Saturday, the last day of your week, we will serve breakfast, and drive your group to the airport.
