The Missions Team is currently putting together a fall Short Term Missions trip with Mexico Medical Ministries. 

Planning is in progress, this year we will again be partnering with George Carl & Wyben Church. 
Hope church has a very long and close relationship with Mexican Medical and with Craig & Kristi Libby, Mexico Medical Leaders who plan, organize and particpate in the missions trips. Many members of Hope Church have particpated over the past 22 years. 

These are some of the details we have now from Kristi with much more to come soon. 

"We will get back to you about the exact fee, but I’m guessing it will be around $600 per person- including food, transportation, and Mexican Medical fees. It might be a little less, but shouldn’t  be anymore."
