We will be collaborating with COMPA (Compañerismo Estudiantil Cristiano), our IFES sister movement in Mexico. The project will begin with 4 days of orientation in Queretaro.  The next week students will go in pairs to live in a Mexican host home. Weeks 3,4, and 5 we will all be housed together in a large house in the Historic Downtown of Queretaro. We will end with 3 days of debrief in Tequisquiapan.  We will invite 50 non-Christian college students from 2 Universities in Queretaro to take 4 weeks of intensive conversational English classes with us. As we help our new Mexican friends with their conversational English skills, they will help us learn about Mexican life and culture.  We will share our lives with them an invite them into our community. The English students will be invited to weekly Bible studies and fun activities with the IVCF and COMPA team.
