MISSION TRIP TO MEXICO
Twenty seven of us are back from our Mission Trip to Mexico where in San Rafael (morning) and El Potosi (afternoon) Vacation Bible School was led each day to the children including many of their moms. Also, an old two room adobe church building was taken down by our crew to provide more room between the church and the pastor’s home. God was gracious in our safety, leading us, as well as sensitizing each of us with a new appreciation of what we have, a thankfulness for His daily provisions, a greater understanding of brothers and sisters in our world as members of Christ’s Body, and a renewed commitment to mission work wherever He leads us daily.
The picture above was taken on the final day of VBS in El Potosi.
