One of our community groups served along side our partner church, Iglesia Cristiana El Faro (The Lighthouse Church) to ofer public activities that allow the church to share the love of Jesus in their community. Their outreach activities included LEGO® outreach VBS for kids, soccer for teenagers, and a family fun night at the church. They prepared for seven days of outreach by coordinating with the pastor in La Paz, discussin gunique challenges of serving in poverty, and preparing the necessary laostictics that come with preparing for an international trip.
a few debrief comments from team members…
…Through this trip our Community Group has bonded together as one large family that will be lifelong friends with a common goal of serving and growing in Christ.
…One of my favorite memories was seeing my son jump into games (Nine Square, soccer, etc.) with the boys from Iglesia Cristiana El Faro church. He didn’t see any of their differences, just the shared joy of play.
… I learned we should be thankful for the things that we have. Not everyone has nice furniture or good food.
… I would love to go back to La Paz, as would my family. I would strongly encourage any CBC family, community group or church staff to visit our friends in La Paz, Mexico.
