|Although a Quinceañera may appear at first glance to be simply a festive, lavishly adorned birthday party, it also has a deeper significance which extends to the girl’s personal self. The Quinceañera, which literally translates to the girl who is 15, signifies a young girl’s transition into becoming a mature woman who is capable of independence in that she can make her own decisions and symbolizes her transition and growth into womanhood. It also plays a symbolic gesture in that it reaffirms her beliefs to her church and her personal faith. This celebration has a religious ceremony followed by a party and combines blend of traditional customs with contemporary trends.|
Pastor Chris has the great honor of also speaking at Camila's Quinceañera during the church service part of the celebration.
Chris, Susan, Allison, Natalie, Charlotte, Tori, and Nick will be making the trip. Of course, everyone is very excited. It will be a whirlwind down and back with a 2-day drive both ways and only 1 day in Mexico. We are thankful for the opportunity to further bond with the Mexican family we serve and support through our Team Ministry evangelism project in Mexico. We consider them family, as they do us.
We will be counting on your prayers as we travel and looking forward to sharing stories and pictures from this trip.
Did you know you and your team can "GO" by joining us

Now is the time to begin planning.

QUINCEAÑERA - BACK TO MEXICO
We are about to make a VERY SPECIAL trip back to our second home, Acuña, Mexico. We have the great honor and blessing of attending what is called a Quinceañera. The Quinceañera (also fiesta de quince años, fiesta de quinceañera, quince años, or quinces) is a tradition in the Latino culture for the celebration of a girl's 15th birthday. We will be joining Pastor David Huerta and his family as they celebrate their daughter, Camila's Quinceañera.
