2 notes from 2 different team members:
My first mission trip: My first mission trip was one I will never forget. From the time I woke up in the morning for personal devotions, to the time I went to bed in the comfort of the El Ayudante girl’s dorm. Throughout the course of the week I saw a house built for a family of 17 that was living in one house altogether before. I saw water filters installed so that families and schools could have fresh, clean water for the first time in their lives. I saw little kid’s faces light up with joy as we poured love out on them through a VBS that had crafts, face painting, bible story, games and many other fun things that kids enjoy. I got to go to an orphanage where 28 kids live. There we got to pour more love out on them as we played soccer together and do a craft with the girls. At the orphanage we genuinely had a good time laughing and playing. During this time I was able to see God moving in a place that was not in the Bay Area (my home). I got to see that love is a universal language, and that God moves in mighty ways all over the world. I came to the realization that I want to be a part of that, a part of God’s glory being shown all over the world and that even if there is a language barrier that love overcomes.
The trip was a wonderful experience and I feel very grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of this team.
