Advent 2022: Homes of Hope

Advent

Advent Project 2022: Homes of Hope

This Advent, Hope is partnering with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) to build homes for our brothers and sisters in Tijuana and Ensenada, Mexico. The goal is twofold:

  1. Raise money to build at least 25 homes for our brothers and sisters in Mexico who are currently without a home!
  2. Assist with the construction of these homes in 2023!

Here's how you can get involved:

Give

All money given to this year's Advent Project will go toward material costs associated with building Homes of Hope. The total cost to construct each home is $20,000. Our goal is to provide more than 25 families with homes through this project! It’s a big goal, but we know our God is bigger, and that with him as our guide, combined with the prayerful generosity of our church family, big things will happen through this year’s Advent Project! You can give as an individual, family, with friends or with your Hope Group … no amount is too small. Every little bit counts!

Ways to give:

  1. Labeled donation buckets at your campus
  2. Online here
  3. By texting YWAM and the dollar amount to 515-219-9093 (example: texting "YWAM 50" donates $50 to the Advent Project)

Serve

Hopesters will also have the opportunity throughout 2023 to travel to Tijuana and Ensenada as a part of a construction team and be the hands and feet of Jesus through building these homes! More details will be announced soon, including dates and travel costs. In the meantime, we invite you to be praying about whether God may be calling you to get involved in this way! If you would like to be notified via email once trip dates are announced, sign up to be added to the Homes of Hope email list!

Pray

And of course, please be praying for our brothers and sisters in Tijuana and Ensenada, and for our mission partner, YWAM! Pray for those who will receive a new home thanks to the money raised during this project. Pray that God’s love will fill the walls of these homes and wrap them in his presence. We pray for all those who will travel to assist with the construction of these homes. That their work not only blesses those they are serving, but also brings them into a closer relationship with Jesus. And, we pray that God’s will and his light will shine bright through this project all throughout Advent and beyond! It's good to be the church, Hope! Thanks for being a church on a mission to reach our to the world around us and share the everlasting love of Jesus Christ!
