Summer Lawson's Fundraiser:

Summer's Mexico Mission Trip

I am thrilled to be participating in this year’s Mexico Mission with the Sleepy Hollow Presbyterian Church. We will be traveling down to Mexico in a combination of buses and vans and settling into a campsite with limited electricity and little to no running water. This trip is often referred by veterans as “the best non-vacation ever” because though it’s in Mexico, it is still very much a work oriented trip.
We will be waking up at six every morning and not leaving the work site until five in the evening. During that time we will work with the most basic of tools, to build two homes: 11’x22’, two rooms with slab floors and stucco walls. However, because we will be working in conjunction with Amor Ministries, building a home is not the only purpose of the trip. Amor Ministries wants to focus as well on cross-cultural exposure and understanding the conditions of poverty through immersion. I will be participating in all facets of the mission including spiritual reflection, journal writing, participation in group discussion, respect for the mission’s purpose, each other and the town’s people.
The total expenses of the trip reach to almost one thousand dollars, but I am prepared to do ulterior fundraising, including babysitting, odd jobs around the neighborhood, and participating in multiple “nail sales.” Nail sales are a unique way of fundraising for our mission that also gets the community involved. We will sell nails that people can write their names on and then we bring them to Mexico with us and use them to build the house and be part of this lasting memory and amazing effort.
I have faith that this trip will be an incredible, once in a lifetime experience that will stay with me forever. I know it will touch me on an emotional and personal level.
I greatly appreciate your consideration and would be happy to answer any questions or present additional information.
Best always,
Summer Lawson
