Casa de Luz
South Abbotsford is a partner church with Casa de Luz Ministries in Primo Tapia, Mexico. CDL works with impoverished single-parent families who live in desperate situations where even feeding their children each day is a struggle.
CDL comes alongside single moms and their children to offer safety, food, clean water, teachers, and mentors. They help to find stable employment and offer paths to education for the children and their mothers. They create access to an entirely new way of life for the most vulnerable families in the community.

The restrictions of COVID-19 may have forced South Abbotsford Church to hit PAUSE for our plans to send teams to Mexico, but it didn't mean we hit STOP. We bought a shipping container, dropped it on our church parking lot, and transformed it into a “Tiny House.” It’s 320 sq ft of beautifully designed, fully furnished, compact living space - one bedroom, a bunk bed/closet storage/desk area, a couch, a kitchen, and a three piece bathroom. It’s a tiny house to us - but a “Casa Grande” to a family in Primo Tapia. We shipped it down to Mexico on a container trailer, and just like that, a “turn key” home welcomed a mom and her children.
