ZOOM 2008

We will be traveling to, working, and staying at the Door of Faith Orphanage.

The orphanage is located approximately 65 minutes south of the border at the Tijuana crossing.

The orphanage sits on 100 acres relatively secluded from the nearest town about 1 mile away.

During the time we are there we will be doing a variety of projects including light construction, painting, serving meals and playing with the kids at the orphanage.

What is the Mission Statement for the Door of Faith Orphanage? 

  • To provide the best home possible to the children entrusted to us.

  • To have a home where visitors can be blessed by their visit.

  • To become a base where people seeking to minister can come for supplies, training, and support.

Door of Faith Orphanage was founded in Tijuana, Mexico in 1959 by Curtis and Sylvia Freeze. They came to Mexico with $35 in their pocket and a vision to help the underprivileged children in Baja California.

In 1962, a friend brought them to the present site, an abandoned dude ranch. In March 1994, while Door of Faith was in a time of transition, DJ and Lynette Schuetze (an American couple from Orange County) joined Gabriel Diego Garcia and his wife Edwarda Ocampo Garcia in their work.

Door of Faith has grown a great deal during the last decade to become one of the largest orphanages in Baja caring for well over one hundred children. Today, along with providing a solid home to the many children under their care, Door of Faith has become a base for other ministries and outreaches. They are involved with local ministries including food distribution, home construction, short-term mission trips, orphanage consulting and many other areas.
