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 trip...do it!

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