Safari with Kids from ERJ Children’s Home, by Caroline Burns, Back2Back Mexico Staff

A few weeks ago, I went with a Family Christian Stores James Fund mission trip team that was serving with us for the week to go on a field trip with the kids from ERJ, El Retiro Juvenil Children’s Home. We went to my favorite field trip location on the entire planet: Bioparque Estrella. At this “zoo” you can go on a safari. As you can see from the photos, it was a little intense.

The giraffes are probably the most gentle animal you encounter there.

They look like velociraptors from Jurassic Park when they come straight at you for food.

The kids had a great time but I think it was the Americans on this field trip who had the experience of a life time – one they’ll never forget!
