Mercy Tech Mission - San Quintin, Baja California
Hello everyone - I haven't posted anything regarding Mercy
Tech Mission for a couple of years.
Firstly, I would like to thank those of you that have helped
Mercy Tech in the past!
I'm Todd Green, and I work as an Automotive Instructor out

automotive training. This will be my second trip with Mercy
Tech Mission, the first one being in the summer of 2011, to
I'm openly looking for some donations. Not cash, but
I'm hoping I could pick up a low mileage, or new spring
compressor (for MacPherson struts).
I'm also looking for a scanner than could pull ABS and SIR
data and codes for mid 2000's vehicles.
I will be in San Diego Saturday, July 11.

Mercy Tech Mission is a Canadian faith-based Christian
non-profit organization that exists to partner skilled

In the Fall of 2014, Mercy Tech also began a mechanics
training program in the Baja, at the mission base of One
Life One Chance Ministries in San Quintin, Mexico. Located
in the northern part of the California Baja, this program
will help those who have little or no opportunity to earn a
living, other than by working in the nearby farming
operations for as little as $9 per 12-hour day.
1) Serve the world - Partnering skilled tradespeople and
professionals with community-based projects, primarily in
Third World countries.
2) Leave something behind - Ensuring that the training of
local workers is a key component of the work project.
3) Give from the heart - Combining a high level of
professionalism with an attitude of giving.
4) Plan for success - Applying due diligence so that each
project has a high probability of success
