Thanksgiving 2024 Trip Info

November 22-26, 2024

We are headed to Big Heart Orphanage Matamoros (which is about 20 miles outside town in a rural area) to serve for 3 days on a 5 day trip (drive down Friday, serve Saturday, Sunday and Monday, drive back Tuesday), November 22-26. We are in the planning stages, but we hope to have a one or two day camp for the kids of Big Heart (similar to our Summer 2024 trip), and tackle some service projects. Those interested should fill out this form and a Director will contact you. Cost is $400 per person.

Big Heart Matamoros Location Information

Big Heart Orphanage, Matamoros is located in a rural area in between Reynosa & Matamoros, Mexico. The Los Indios International Bridge is 14 kilometers (15 minutes) from the facility, which you can see on the map. The facility sits on 44 acres in a rural farming area. The only travel in Mexico will be to and from the orphanage from the border crossing at Los Indios. Ensuring the security of all trip participants is our highest priority and we are happy to discuss in more detail how we will execute our plans surrounding safety.


The facility has climate controled dormitories (male & female), many recreational areas (including a pool), and wifi internet. A video of the facility is included below.

Big Heart Matamoros Video Tour

Learn more about the facility by watching this video tour made a couple years ago. Since Big Heart Orphanage took over the facility in 2023 (it was previously called Angels of God), many improvements have been made. Visit our Summer Mission Trip 2024 page to see the most recent photos and videos of the facility.
