  • Soap

  • Shampoo

  • Deodorant

  • Small hand mirror

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste

  • Hat

Suggested Clothes to Bring


Dress for Work Projects (for both men and women)

  • Old Jeans

  • Old shirts

  • Longer Capris for ladies may be worn

  • Longer shorts for guys may be worn

  • Work gloves

  • Work shoes

  • Hat


Dress for Vacation Bible School Outreaches/Home Visitation & Prayer Ministry

  • Men – Unless your work clothes are extremely dirty they can be worn to V.B.S. You will be playing and interacting with children in a fairly dusty environment so changing is not really necessary. Longer shorts can be worn.

  • Women – Pants are fine, no sleeveless tops, dress modestly. Keep in mind V.B.S time is outdoors and somewhat dirty. Don’t wear your best stuff. It’s also a good idea not to wear your jewelry to V.B.S. as the children will want you to give it to them or be distracted by it.


Dress for Evangelism/Home Visitation & Prayer Ministry

  • Men – Genes or nicer pants are fine. A nicer shirt is good.

  • Women – Skirts or pants, no sleeveless tops or shorts. Please dress modestly.


Dress for Church Outreaches

  • Men – Nice jeans (or equivalent) and casual shirts

  • Women – Dress or skirt that goes below the knees when seated.

  • Note for the ladies -   Please do not wear open sleeve tops to any events that involve being around your Mexican brothers and sisters in Christ. They dress much more modestly than those in the States.


Dress for the Mission Base/Tourist Activities

  • As per your leader's direction
