Puente de Vida
La Jolla Community Church ministers to school children in Ensenada, Mexico who attend the Puente de Vida school. Puente de Vida (Bridge of Life) school is a ministry of Rancho El Refugio (Refuge Ranch) in Ensenada, Mexico. The ministry provides hope and a future to disadvantaged children. Unfortunately, the school is currently operating without adequate space. As it exists now the school is operating in shared space and therefore the students often get displaced.
Our involvement has been in partnership with Rancho El Refugio and Lazarian World Homes to build classrooms specifically designated for the school children. Furthermore, students and families who attend the church here in La Jolla minister to the children in Mexico, while also building classrooms. The students who attend the school are largely from the disadvantaged area of Ojos Negros and are children of migrant workers. Puente de Vida is committed to breaking the cycle of illiteracy and poverty in these families by providing a Christian education to their children.
