Greg Long is involved with Mission San Quintin and was among 45 high school students, young adults and chaperones who traveled to Vicente Guerrero, Mexico to build the two-room school. Located in the Baja about three hours south of Ensenada, Vicente Guerrero hosts some of Mexico’s poor, many of them seasonal farm workers.

The trips are life changing for many who go. To see and experience poverty where people are living in cardboard homes and working 10 to 12 hours a day is overwhelming. On this last trip, many of the youth were quite touched by the experience.
