SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS: BWAP 2019
Break With A Purpose: January 5-12th, 2019 (Deadline to apply is November 18th)
This year we will be headed to San Antonio for two purposes – to learn about the complex issue of immigration and to serve in repairing substandard housing.
Scripture is full of God’s command for us to welcome the stranger and care for the alien (Leviticus 19:33-34; Matthew 25:35; Ruth). In the United States, immigration has become a contentious issue with many policies being enacted by the government. In San Antonio, we will see firsthand the impact on people’s lives as we learn about untold stories of the Alamo City, the spectrum of immigration and responses, social dynamics of multiple cultures colliding, the importance of trauma-informed care, and more.
During the second half of our trip, we will partner with Blueprint Ministry in their mission to serve the elderly, physically disabled, and low income homeowners of San Antonio by rebuilding, renovating and improving substandard housing.
Sunday, December 2nd ~ 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Sunday, December 9th ~ Team Commissioning at Worship, 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Sunday, January 27th ~ Team Sharing in Worship
