Making The Most Of Your Mission From Home

Bring The Group Together

While Missions From Home can be enjoyed by individuals in their homes, it's designed to create conversation over a shared Mexican meal. Bring the group together around a big TV and live the missions experience together.

Watch The Food Tutorials

Gerardo from Agua Viva's kitchen shows you how to prepare authentic & easy Mexican dishes. Watch ahead of time to eat pastel azteca, bistec ranchero, and other dishes to fully enjoy the program.

Use The Videos To The Full

Get to know your partner church and the family you're working with through videos unique to your group. Use the campfire and nature videos to discuss and to journal. Make note of questions you have for our closing Zoom.
