While in Mexico, visiting missions teams engage in various service projects. Casa de Luz works very closely with the leaders of each team to build a missions trip that engages the skills, passions and interests of missions team members while meeting needs among CDL, La Hermosa Church and our town of Primo Tapia.
The teams activities at Casa de Luz range from crafts and teaching times with the children, dance or music classes, sports or activities classes, playing soccer with the children, or other special events. Some team members also love to help out in our CDL Nursery, where staff are always happy to have some extra hands helping out with the younger ones.
Often times, there will be a construction project for the teams to get involved with. Currently, our main construction project is Casa de Luz Village.
Our heart at Casa de Luz is to bless our community of Primo Tapia alongside our brothers and sisters from La Hermosa Church. One of the activities that teams are regularly involved with, alongside La Hermosa church leaders, is in home prayer visits, and in the preparation and delivery of food hampers for local families in need. Traditionally, this means the team shops for, assembles, and then delivers the food hampers. The food hamper delivery day is always a highlight for team members, where they get the chance to step out of their comfort zone, pray for those in need, and serve in a very practical way. We have seen God do some amazing things on these food hamper delivery trips.
