After months of planning, prayer and anticipation the time has arrived for our high school students to leave on their mission trip to Tijuana. They will depart on Wednesday, January 31 and return on February 7. Again, thank you to everyone who had a part in making this trip possible. From those who have prayed and to those who gave so generously, thank you. I am looking forward to sharing stories with you on how the lives of our students have been changed because of this trip. If you would like to follow the group on a daily basis go this site; muybruenobcs.blogspot.ca There will be regular postings on this site keeping everyone up to date with stories and photos. You will not be able to communicate back to the group but you will be able to see what is happening to them.
