Wednesday's Walk ~ Mission Trip to Mexico

I love going on Mission's Trips. Unfortunately, I have only been on two out of the country. I was just in Jamaica last November, what a wonderful time. I also went to Mexico after my junior year in high school. It was also a really great time of learning, giving and growing. One major theme I learned while down there was to "Let Go and Let God".
There were so many cool things that happened before, during and after this trip. I had just been in a major car accident a few months prior. I was supposed to be on crutches all summer long. I had fractured my pelvis in 3 areas and my sacrum in one spot. Jesus and I had a little talk about that. I knew that I could not keep up with the mission's team if I were using the crutches. We were told we would be doing a lot of walking (they were not kidding). And even if I was off my crutches I was worried about the pressure I would be putting on my pelvis and pain. I was really worried about it but I had to give it to Him. I stopped using crutches two weeks before we had to leave. My trip to Mexico was mid July. I was in no serious pain before, during, or after. God is amazing!
I worked with the children's team. We did puppets, balloon art, clowning and just a bunch of other stuff. The children were so amazing...I fell in love with them. I learned to be so thankful for the things that God has blessed us with. I was able to see miracles, people give their hearts to Jesus, feel God's call on my life, and see the power of God. So, if you ever have thought or are thinking about going on a mission's it!

Doing what Jesus has called us to do will help us....

  2. What a beautiful trip and looks like a good time. I had a friend that went there on a trip with her church. Thanx for sharing.
    Have a great day

  3. AWESOME POST! As I have been on several mission trips, myself, I know first hand that you are not able to convey how this has affected your life. Yeah, it's funny how circumstances don't matter when it comes to Jesus' plans! :)

  4. Wow! What an awesome praise that you didn't have pain and were able to go on the trip! God IS good!

    Mission trips are definitely a blessing to be on and can be a blessing to you as well.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures and what God did for you!
