Mexico with YUGO MinistriesDecember 27, 2020 - January 2, 2021
Trip Cost: $1500 + airfare. This includes the cost of building a house.
Join us to Go Be Love in Ensenada, Mexico with our brand new ministry partner YUGO Ministries and ring in the new year in Mexico! The team will fly into San Diego before driving to Ensenada to stay at the awesome YUGO campus.
Yugo partners with the local church in Mexico! Exclusively serving with local pastors, they strive to make sure that our teams are sensitive to the culture where we will serve. YUGO trips include morning and evening worship and chapel times so that teams can be filled up spiritually so that they can pour themselves out into ministry.
This team will be a part of a new home build (no construction experience is required). We hope to help change the life of a local family by demonstrating God’s love to them through the construction of a new home. Check out this video for more on what a new home build looks like.
We are very excited to be partnering with YUGO in the community of Ensenada. We expect this trip to fill up fast so sign up today!
Introductory- This trip is great for both first-timers and those that have been on many trips. Because travel time is relatively short, this trip is a great way to serve in a time that fits your schedule and because this trip flies into San Diego it is a much cheaper trip than other international options. You do NOT need construction experience to be a part of this team.
This trip is appropriate for individuals, groups, and families.

Team Member Commitment
I understand that the mission trip starts the day I apply for the trip and agree that, as a part of a Go Be Love mission team, I am committing to being available for conference calls leading up to the trip and reading all emails and materials pertaining to the trip, and responding when necessary. I understand that these communications are needed to maximize the effectiveness of my team on the mission field, to prepare each person for the trip and to build team unity. For some teams, this may include 4 to 8 conference calls leading up to the trip. I understand that a large part of these conference calls will focus on a spiritual preparation and will include doing a pre-trip discipleship study together.
Go Be Love advises all travelers to read the US Department of State background notes on their website. Travelers can also check the latest health information with the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention at http://www.cdc.gov to get the most recent health advisories, immunization recommendations/requirements, and advice on food and drinking water safety for regions and countries. We also suggest that all participants consult their physician before traveling abroad.
Paying for Your Trip
Go Be Love encourages our team members to raise support. Once you are signed up for a trip, you can fundraise with all items on the team member fundraising section of our online store, you can send out support letters or come up with your own creative ideas. We use a team member database called Managed Missions that allows you to create your own custom fundraising page. Unlike other online fundraising pages, those donations will go directly into your trip account and will also be tax deductible for your donors. This feature is called Public Profile and we encourage all team members to create one and send the link to your donors who would like to give online. You and your donors can also make tax deductible payments toward your trip total by mailing checks to Go Be Love.
Flight and Travel Info
One thing that sets Go Be Love mission trips apart is that we book ALL flights for all of our team members, including your domestic connections from your home airport. Please list your home airport on your application. For smaller airports, please give several options for airports you could fly from as sometimes our international airline partners may not have options in and out of smaller airports. Please note: because we will be booking all of your flights and connections and because we do so at the best possible price – this does not always mean the best possible schedule. Many times, the international airlines we use are able to offer us domestic flight connections at a very low cost (usually only $75-$100) and therefore, we are offered a very limited class of service. This might mean longer layover times so please be prepared for this in advance. You may find a better schedule online but that doesn’t mean that it was an option within the price range and class of service we were going for. If you have specific limitations on arrival and departure times, you will need to let us know in writing 90 days or more in advance and you will need to be prepared to incur additional costs if your preferences do not fall within the class of service we are offered at the lowest cost.
Chuck’s passion is for those that society overlooks, for those that society has forgotten. He regularly works through community organizations close to home to serve and minister to those in need, both physically and spiritually. He carries that same passion to serve those in need to Mexico and to Kenya and to the world.
Chuck is looking forward to meeting you and is excited to share the love of Christ alongside you as God works through your team to meet the needs of a family in Mexico.
