Join Good Samaritan parishioners (of all ages), the Newman community and Build a Miracle as we paint the house for the Dominguez-Vasquez family in Tijuana, Mexico.

Alejandro, Johanna, Melany (12), Danna (8), Katherine (6)

SIGN UP BY SUNDAY, APRIL 21ST to join us on the Saturday, April 27th build date. We will paint the inside and outside of the house, put together furniture, decorate the house, surprise the family with their new house, bless the house and spend time with our new friends at the community center.

Sign Up for BaM by April 21st

Other ways to sign up… use the link on the Good Samaritan website events page or email Katie and Tracy Jewell at tracyjewell70@outlook.com with the following information:
● Email address
● Cell phone number
● Number of people attending (including yourself)
● Do you need a ride to the border?
● Are you willing to give others a ride to the US side of the border?
● If yes, how many people (including yourself) can you drive?


We will leave the Good Sam/Newman parking lot no later than 7am and return approximately 4-5pm (depends on the border crossing time). If you are able, a $25 donation is requested by BAM to cover the cost of the bus and lunch. Katie & Tracy Jewell will send detailed information as soon as it is received from Build a Miracle, usually a couple days before the build date.

DOCUMENT INFO (from Build A Miracle):

Adult U.S. Citizens now need a Passport to cross back into the USA. However, unofficially if you are a U.S. citizen and have a drivers license AND a birth certificate, they will let you through – might have to wait while they check your ID/docs (apparently people still do it this way).

Children under 16 without a passport can present an original or copy of their birth certificate.

Contact Katie or Tracy Jewell at tracyjewell70@outlook.com or (858) 705-1152 with questions.

More info can be found at www.goodsamchurch.org/events or Build a Miracle’s website at www.buildamiracle.net.
