OUR MONTHLY TJ TRIP
We make regular visits to the Orphan Home, "Jesus tribe, " led by Edith Paloma, Benito and Fernando. It is a primitive orphanage setting only 4 years old but has 60 kids. It resides just east of Rosarito in a small town called "la Gloria " just 25 minutes from the Otay Mesa border.
I have been getting to know the Orphan home children and workers for just over a year and have fallen in love with them. The kids range in age from 2-18 and come from a poor community nearby or have been placed by local social workers due to abandonment and abuse.
Here are the details for our next trip:
Sunday August 24th
Where to meet: Behind liberty station in the parking lot of :
Crown Ace Hardware
2750 Dewey Road
San Diego, CA 92106
Park across the street in the small parking lot near the brown bathrooms facing the green field.
Time: 8:30 am and leave by 9:30am
Check in by signing media waivers, emergency information and mandatory $40 dollar payment,(even if you brought donations). If you brought donations have our check in team give you the proper paperwork !
If you have financial hardship you can pay $20!!
After signing in go to the clean bathroom. You won't have a chance to go for two hours after we leave.
Get connected with your new friends through introductions, icebreakers, devotions, car pool assignments and prayer.
Your donation also goes towards food for the kids and our lunch which is some type of san which, snack and juice or water.
We sometimes take some of the money for overhead and operations for the ministry, as well as give a love offering for the Orphanage. We have averaged close to $500 each time ! Their rent alone cost $850 and no one else helps them. What an amazing opportunity !
What to Bring: Something that has wheels so we can pack stuff in for our children. Personal small backpack, water container and bottles of water, power bars, hat, modest clothes, passport, and your driver's license, a good attitude and flexible spirit.
A Few More Details: We won’t be able to stop for food on our way in so please eat breakfast and bring some snacks. Lunch will be provided. This is an all day event. We should be back around 5:00 pm, pending the lines at the Border.
Feel free to invite a friend or pass along the information to anyone else who may be interested.
Please rsvp so that I can make plans for transportation, food, etc.
Please feel free to email me with any questions. I’m looking forward to the time with the kids and this team!
