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. 

The inconveniences we face here are so minor most the time compared to what the people in other parts of the world have to deal with every day.  Yet in the countries I have been blessed to visit people are patient, they are people oriented and work together, and help each, are cheerful, and loving.  They live without access to clean water, adequate shelter, food, medicine, health care and the list goes on.   El Ayudante in Honduras is all about helping the people improve their lives, water filters to provide clean water, health care, dental care and decent homes.  They are the hands and feet of Jesus, loving and encouraging their neighbors.  They share the love of Jesus and encourage the churches, pastors and those who care for orphans.  We were blessed to come along side them and help with some of the needs while we were there.  I think our whole team is eager to return, and if it be God’s will I will be able to join the team again.  Thank you to all who prayed for me, our team, and for El Ayudante.
