Baja California, Mexico: Casa del Descanso


"...abide with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent." Luke 24:29

"Casa del Descanso", House of Rest, was conceived through many years of witnessing a multitude of American churches who had experienced frustration as they attempted to perform God's work in Baja California, Mexico. Many groups lacked clear direction and guidance as to where the genuine needs of the area existed. Through much prayer, Casa del Descanso came into fruition.
Our missions is simple...that is to: Accommodate and facilitate in evangelism, medicine and clothing distribution, orphanage and prison visitations, church construction and humanitarian assistance to the less fortunate south of the border.
Casa del Descanso is directed by The Ark's Abel Maldonado. We are committed to assisting and directing your group while in the mission field as well as providing a safe haven of comfort, rest and relaxation. Our desire is to make your group's mission experience a memorable and productive endeavor that your group would return home infecting others with the joy of serving.
