Our team worked with ministry partner Susan Key and our church partner, Iglesia Cristiana El Faro. They worked alongside local church members using Lego activities, games and crafts to engage local elementary aged children as part of a Spring Break Vacation Bible School.
To prepare for a week of outreach ministry the team spent time praying, studying the Word, gathering supplies and coordinating with Susan Key and the pastor of the El Faro Church.
a few debrief comments from team members…
…The team was clearly formed by the Lord and I am incredibly thankful for that. I didn’t know them at all or well before the trip. I now count them as brothers and sisters in Christ and dear, dear friends!
…My kids were undoubtedly stretched, and their worlds grew. Their picture of global outreach sharpened, and their view of God and how He works has grown. I can’t wait to see how He will use this in their lives moving forward.
…I’d like to say that this was an incredibly fulfilling and eye-opening trip, both for me, and (I think at least) for the kids we came to serve.
…For me I felt like it was a sport in the way that if something went wrong you just had to go through it. Not many things went wrong but you either found a way to fix it or you just went through it. A big part of it was just having a good attitude.
…I know that in my heart it has stirred a deeper passion for missions and for reaching the lost. I have a richer appreciation for the sacrifices and dedication of missionaries who go out into foreign countries for the sake of the call.
…I am thankful to God for taking me to Mexico to worship Him in a different country with different people.
