A. No. M10 Missions is a Christian run Charity and we welcome people from all religious backgrounds to join us on M10 trips. There is no favouritism towards those with a faith in our application process. We do, however, request that any faith or religion is respected while on the course. Discrimination of any kind (race / gender / sexuality) will not be tolerated.

A. Yes. Previous volunteers are welcomed on every trip. Please speak to Steve if you wish to be considered for our ‘Core Leadership Programme.’

Q. what specifically do you do for the homeless in mexico
A. We partner with YWAM and Homes of Hope to build durable houses that will provide adequate shelter. Many of the families we build for have make shift houses, made out of wood, bits of cardboard, blankets and what ever they can lay their hands on. That's fine in the summer however, as soon as wind and rainy season comes, their homes fall apart and then they have to go looking for other resources to build again.
