What happens in Mexico, saves Mexico
I just had an opportunity to go on my first mission’s trip to Playa Del Carmen in Mexico for a week with seven members of the church I attend. We were invited and led by Mission Explosion International. We planned to visit and help out a local Church of Christ in Playa Del Carmen. Our goals consisted of going out in the neighborhood to promote a clinic check that would be hosted in the local Church building. The clinic sessions included checking blood pressure and sugar levels along with hosting VBS (vacation bible school) days as well. We also planned to hand out Spanish Mission soccer balls.
We ended up doing 3 days of clinic work, 2 days of children outreach, one day of men’s and women’s bible study, and our Evangelical guide preached on Sunday. The trip was amazing. We had lots of fellowship, outreach, teaching, and preaching going on all lead by God and His spirit. If you ever have an opportunity to go on a mission’s trip, please pray diligently and seek God’s guidance in the matter. I found out that I was way more capable through Christ than I ever imagined. In the end, the culture, language, and the income levels may be different, but the people are no different than us in the fact that they need God and Jesus Christ just like we do.
Thank you to Rusty, Audrey, Jordan, and Kylee!!! I will never forget my first mission’s trip to Mexico.
