Labor Day Mission to Mexico

We are back safely from our Labor Day Mission trip to Mexico. Thanks to all who prayed for this mission, which was a great success. Our Labor day Mission trips are primarily for taking clothing and religious education supplies to poor villages. Here are some images from the trip:


A mayan girl who was selling embroidered handkerchiefs. She was very hot and tired from working in the sun all day.




















First glimpse of the island (Isla Mujeres) where we took this year's supplies (from the front of the boat).







Colonia Guadalupana -- the community where we took supplies. It is comprised of many rows of one-room shacks, made of found pieces of wood and tin.









Some girls showing off their pictures of "mom."








This is Juan. When I commented that he shares a name with one of Jesus' good friends, he was excited to tell me that he is also a good friend of Jesus and goes to Church every Sunday!

















This is Perla, who waited patiently for a very long time just to talk to me. What a sweetheart.

















A family from the Colonia. They have started a business selling seashells to tourists.








Arrival back on the mainland of Mexico. Thanks to God for safety on choppy waters, the gift of Spanish, and the privilege of doing his work.

Please say a prayer now for Mexico, for deliverance from gang violence, drugs, and poverty and for the Gospel of Christ to take root and grow in the hearts of her people.
