|JCEP partners with several organizations to reach the kids
and the community in Juarez.
In January 2005 Scott and Joni took a mission trip offered
through Menlo Park Presbyterian Church (MPPC) which was organized
by Missions Ministries to build houses for the homeless there.
Missions Ministries is a Colorado organization that hosts
many churches and other organizations to build approximately
50 houses per year. It was on the MPPC trip with Missions
Ministries that we felt called to help the children in the
community of over $1 million people who migrated to live
in crated houses to work in American factories for $10/day.
We then partnered with Silicon Valley Community Foundation to set up
JCEP to help educate the children of this community.

Missions Ministries offers Americans
short-term mission trips to Juarez, Mexico. Our volunteer
teams travel across the border to spend 2-3 days building
high quality, simple homes for the poor, hosting children's
programs or offering medical aid, while sharing the love
of Jesus Christ. All we do points to helping meet the physical
and spiritual needs of the Mexican people."
