The dates of the “Winter Trip” have been set. Team members should arrive no later than 6:00 pm on December 26th. Our work days will be December 27th and 28th. We will take a break on Sunday, the 29th, to visit the nursing home in Rio Bravo, or go to the beach on South Padre Island. Our last day to cross the border and work will be December 30th. On that afternoon, we will have our famous community hot dog cookout for the people who live in the neighborhood by our medical clinic in Reynosa.
All team members stay at our team house in Progreso Lakes, Texas. It is situated on a lake nature preserve, which is inhabited in the winter months by a variety of birds who winter in south Texas.
The cost of the Winter Trip is $150. This fee covers most meals, and all of the supplies we purchase to serve in Mexico. A passport is REQUIRED to cross the border.
