Outdoor Recreation Evangelism and Discipleship
Opportunity in Mexico
Reconciliamar uses adventures at sea to transform lives in La Paz, Mexico. One of our principal activities involves taking local folks to sea to help them gain an appreciation for and thus a desire to protect their ocean environment. While legal protection of the environment is necessary, as are the scientific and educational components, Reconciliamar offers the essential third component to creation care: the spiritual element. We work to help transform people’s lives via the good news of Jesus. As their lives are changed, people will be able to understand why it is important to do creation care, rather than just knowing the what and how of caring for the environment.
