Door of Faith Orphanage Trip
Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 7am
La Mission, Baja Mexico

I will need 11 people including 2 who are willing to drive. Vic will drive with a Sentri pass. Please note if you are available to drive and if you have a Sentri/Global Entry card: Bring your passport.

We’ll meet at the Palm Avenue Trolley Station in South San Diego (San Diego, CA 92154) Exit Palm Avenue from the 5 freeway – The trolley station is just east of the freeway. Please arrive at 7:00am promptly. Free parking is available. We will depart by 7:15 a.m.

We’ll arrive at the orphanage by 9:15 am. DOFO is located in La Mision about 50 minutes south of the border using the toll roads. We ask that each passenger contribute $15.00 to your driver to cover fuel, insurance, & tolls. Drivers, please arrive with plenty of fuel, and that you have Mexican auto insurance. Drivers are responsible for their passengers to collect funds to pay for insurance, tolls, and help with fuel costs.

This year I'll purchase the food the day before and store it at the home of a local friend who who is gracious enough to help us. We'll pick the food up on our way on the 27th. SDPCA will provide food for the children. Our lunch menu will be: grilled chicken, salad, bread, and fruit. We'll assist in prepping, cooking, serving, and cleaning up!

Tour starts upon arrival. Prep lunch beginning by 10am. Serve lunch by noon. We’ll clean up around 12:45 p.m. Around 1:15 p.m. we will have time with the children outside to play and interact with.

Returning home: We expect to wrap it up around 3 pm. Groups may decide to explore Baja afterwards and perhaps get an early dinner together. The border wait to return to the U.S. is unpredictable so it is highly advised that you do not make firm plans for later that day. If you have a Sentri passport then it will be a lot quicker.

If you're unable to join us but would like to contribute:

  • You can become a part of the orphanage's $5/month club
  • Donations of items the orphanage needs are welcome; please visit their website:

Please confirm your interest in participation on the evite above. Then, personally email me, Vic, at for additional information.
