Another quick shout out to friends of mine doing amazing stuff for the Lord. My friend Clara felt a calling to go to Rocky Point a couple years back with Weekend Missions. She ended up staying and is now pursuing other opportunities. I love Clara – I remember when she first came to the Lord. Now He is using her and her art for His purposes. I got to spend time with her over the summer in Rocky Point and also got to know Eric and Martha Stanley. The Stanley’s are missionaries to Mexico and are looking to raise support as well. You can check them out and support them at My Contagious Generosity.

My friend Karla is a photographer and she took some amazing pictures of different people on our Mexico team. Even though I didn’t take my Canon with me, I enjoyed talking photography with her. I am posting some of my favorites from her album.

Paul and Melissa led us in worship to start the morning off. Then each person had a chance to talk about how this trip affected them and how God was working in each of us. There were lots of tears and it ended up being a powerful morning of reflection, praise and worship. This is one of my favorite things about mission trips – the coming together of the team in spirit and unity.

Savior
He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

After a fun evening at the beach, going for one last Backstreet dog seemed like the perfect way to end the night. Jaimie hadn’t tried one of these yummy dogs, so I offered to buy her one. We went down to the stand and a good majority of our team was already hanging out there. It was a fun last night of fellowship and we enjoyed watching Conrad allowing some of the girls to ride his 4 wheeler.

The weather was perfect. Julie and Shelby took charge and started grilling up all the burgers and dogs. All of guys felt embarrassed that they did all the work. After the sun went down, I saw something really cool. There were different people everywhere from our team sitting on the beach looking at the beautiful sky. I too went and sat and just gazed at how beautiful our heavenly Father is. It was such a powerful moment. The worship guys starting singing some worship songs in spanish. We started to crowd around them and joined them in singing. After an hour, we were all standing there with hands in the air soaking in the moment. It such an amazing thing when cultures come together to sing in different tongues to our Lord and Saviour.

We found where the worship team from the local church was having their gathering. It was a perfect setting as the sun was starting to set. They were very welcoming and offered us some shrimp ceviches in oyster sauce to eat. A bunch of people went down to the beach while some of us stayed behind to get to know these amazing people.
