Our mission team arrived safely home on Sunday afternoon, glad to be home but remembering our experience of new places and new friends.
Yesterday was our day of R&R. Most of us spent the better part of the day taking a tour to Chichén Itzá, one of the “seven new wonders of the world.” It’s an amazing display of Mayan architecture and ingenuity, a real step back in time.
Last night we had our last dinner together as a group and reflected together about the mission of the week: the joy of having new group members for this trip; the coming together of people with a variety of gifts to do a variety of tasks; the admiration of our partners in Revolución who have worked so hard to make their dream of affordable clean water come true; the joy of the children; the friendships we formed with people from another place and culture.
We leave Mexico with a sense of satisfaction and joy, and of deep gratitude. God has answered the prayers of a church in a tiny, poor village in rural Mexico and the prayers of a church in Versailles, Kentucky, by bringing us together in this mission. We are grateful for them and for you. Thank you for all you have done to make this possible.
To see the results of our trip, come to church this Sunday. There will be a mission report at both services with photos.
We are already talking about our next mission trip, so stay tuned!
