On Sunday, youth from across the community unite for one cause.
The Mexico Mission auction will feature both, a silent and live auction, designed to raise funds for homes to be built during spring break in Mexico.
The workers will include members from the United Church of Los Alamos, the Unitarian Church and non-church members, all who are on a mission to help their fellow man.
The students have donated their time and gift certificates for services. The items include tennis lessons, babysitting, a photo session and more.
The process wouldn’t be possible without UNCHLA member Laura Erickson and husband Randy.
“I am excited about the auction because it brings the whole community and church family together to support the mission trip,” Laura said. “It is a very tangible way for everyone to say they support the youth and adults who are going to build in Puerto Peñasco.”
The United Church of Los Alamos heads out on trip number 28 this year with an equal number of adults and youth — experienced and freshmen trip-goers.
Just prior to the auction, the team often finds out information on the families they will build for. Amor Ministries works with local Pastors of Puerto Peñasco to decide who will receive the gift.
