As the rains continue to fall in our Northern California neighborhoods, we are anticipating the arrival of the budding trees, blooming flowers and the germinating farmer’s fields. Over the winter months, we have enjoyed the bountiful harvests of tomatoes, strawberries, blackberries and other fruits and vegetables. Have you ever wondered where this food comes from?
One way to discover the answer to this question is to join the St. John’s Lutheran Church – Baja Mission 2017 as we travel south on I-5 to the US Mexico Border and down the safe military patrolled Highway 1D to the agricultural communities surrounding Colonia Vicente Guerremo,
200 miles into the Baja California of Mexico. Our team will join with others from Southern California as we travel, toil, eat, swim, interact, and meet new friends in the fields where our winter fruits and vegetables are grown. Currently, we have about a dozen committed and interested missionaries from St. John’s (and friends). The opportunity is open to our entire community, including students, young adults, parents, grandparents and others.
The early registration (save $75) period opens February 15 and ends March 15, 2017.
