We live in a beautiful but broken world. Because we believe that everything is possible with God, we seek to spread the joy of Jesus Christ to all the nations.
To personally facilitate this, we regularly send out missions teams for hands-on work in different parts of the world. As missions opportunities become available, we will post them here with information on how you can get involved.
MapleRidge members have been a part of a mission to the mountain villages of San Cristóbal for many years, generously impacting the lives of families and their children by sharing their faith, their energy and their love.
HOMES: Construction materials are purchased locally and homes are built for 2-4 families by our group. The community, the family (to be gifted a home) and local tradesmen, work alongside us to complete four room homes.
KIDS CLUB: We also visit local schools, playing with the children, do a skit and complete a craft, all based on a Bible story.
While in San Cristóbal, we stay in a nice community center, wonderful meals are prepared for us by the center staff. We visit the local church (Pastor Juan and the community are influential in selecting the next families to need a home).
Mid-week, we visit the larger city of Santa Domingo, learning about the history and culture, the people, with an opportunity to shop or explore.
We would love to answer your questions about this wonderful opportunity to share God’s love by serving the people of San Cristóbal. No construction skills required, just love for others and a desire to serve! You will be touched forever by the experience!
