Morelia

Yes, I am back from Mexico, and there is much to say but not much time to say it. The long and short of it is that this was perhaps the best short term mission team I have ever worked with. We encountered countless obstacles of one sort or another throughout our experience, but the team handled everything with a seemingly limitless amount of patience, grace, and joy.

The project itself was incredible - we managed to completely renovate a city park in the matter of three and a half days - including digging up walking paths, laying 10 tons of gravel, running backhoes, repainting bleachers and playground equipment, trimming trees, planting bushes and new trees, restriping a basketball court, painting murals, and a number of other things. The mission church we worked with - Rid de Vida Iglesia de Christo - was tremendous and took care of us very well. The community was deeply impacted, especially the neighbors around the park. One neighbor became a huge champion for us and now has a great relationship with the church. We held a huge carnival on Saturday that saw more than 300 from the community participate. All in all, a huge impact was made for the spirit of Christ last week in the bustling city of Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico.
