Members of the Huntington University women’s softball and women’s soccer teams spent a week helping build a community center in La Mision, a town located on Mexico’s Baja peninsula. The community center, which is attached to a medical center, is scheduled to open this summer.
There were actually two trips. Seven members of the softball team went January 6-13. Then 17 soccer players went January 13-20.
Spearheading the trips, and taking part in both along with her husband and sons, was Amanda Burge, coach of the women’s cocer team.
The teams also spent time ministering to people who live in a dump in Tijuana, and participating in a church service at a wall separating the US and Mexico.
