The Mayan Miracle Foundation consistently seeks to assess and prioritize the needs of the people living in the Yucatan Peninsula while providing volunteers with opportunities for service.
During our expeditions to Mexico we provide food, household supplies, clothing, shelter (through home repairs, upgrades, and new construction), and specialized needs.
The experiences and friendships that we leave Mexico with far outweigh the goods that we provide.
Our mission is to provide physical aid and establish lasting relationships in an attempt to ease the burdens of those living in remote villages in the Yucatan Peninsula. However, the miracle is separate from our mission. While serving “the needy” we discover how desperately needy we actually are. We take simple provisions, which we have an abundance of, arriving with clothing, food, household supplies, and a sincere desire to make a difference. Then the miracle occurs; the exchange happens. We give them clothing; they clothe us in perspective. We give them food; they feed our souls with humility. We give them household supplies; they give us joy in simplicity. We offer our desire to help and they offer us true friendship. Our mission is not to change the lives of the Mayan people in some drastic way, but rather to experience the inevitable change that occurs in our own lives as we become “anxiously engaged in a good cause”. We sincerely believe that by doing so, our families and communities are strengthened by the miracle made possible by the Mayan people.
