At The Worksite

  • Most likely, the weather will be hot while you are working so come prepared. Water will be supplied for you at the worksite, but bring your own water bottle, sunscreen, and a hat to help protect you from dehydration.
  • It’s easy to think that the house is the most important part of the trip, but we are really here to love and serve people. Take time to talk to the family (even if you don’t know Spanish!), play with kids, or invite people to join in the work!
  • Our dress code on the worksite we want to be culturally appropriate and safe. Shorts, capris, sandals, sleeveless shirts, and going shirtless are NOT allowed on Amor worksites. The local pastors of our Mexico Ministry Planning Board has specifically requested these requirements to make sure we reflect well on the local church. You can’t go wrong with close-toed shoes, jeans, a t-shirt, and a hat.
  • Absolutely no power tools are allowed. All of our work will be done with hand tools that we will provide for you. You should definitely bring your own pair of work gloves.
  • Do not play with the animals in Mexico! Animals are not required to be registered or immunized, so steer clear.

At Camp

  • La Cocina, the kitchen service run by Mexican pastors’ wives and their congregations, provides us with meals for the weekend. They cook their own recipes and take care of meals, snacks, coffee, water, Gatorade, you name it. Tables and folding chairs are provided.
  • Camp caretakers watch the people and things at camp 24/7. Amor staff members will be with the group both at camp and at the worksite. Only people and vehicles approved by Amor are permitted through the gate at camp.
  • The experience at camp is very similar to how the families live - pit toilets (a port-a-potty over a hole in the ground) and cold bucket showers.
  • Each night we have time to share about the day around the campfire and hear from some of our pastors and staff members.
  • We will provide tents that sleep 4-6 people. You are responsible for sleeping bags and sleeping pads. Married couples and parents/kids will be put together unless you request different arrangements.

What People are Saying

"The Amor 3 Day allowed me to build a house for a family with my 4 year old son. Since I work during the week, having a chance to complete a house over the weekend  and serve with my child was perfect."

Jessika Ahlberg, California
"For someone who has never been on a mission trip, it is an easy way to get involved." 
Peggy Hall, Oregon
"It’s not just a short-term effect.  It provides for a family for several years.”
