Back in Georgia

I'm back from Mexico. 3000 miles logged on the church van. Whoo! What a trip. This was my first mission trip and there is so much going on I can't begin to post it in one single post. I"m going to blog about it over the next couple of weeks with pictures and tales.
Traveling for nine days with 5 other people is a lot of fun. We all got along and trust me you need to get along to live together for that many days. The people in Mexico were fabulous and loving and genuine and they cook the most awesome food! I think I gained 5 pounds at least.

Here's a picture from a VBS we did one night.

The kids were great and they loved the crafts we did and the snack. They sang and listened to our Bible verse being read. All of this was of course happening in Spanish. But we somehow managed to communicate.

More photos and stories in the coming days.

Lindi, great to read about your journey to Mexico. What a group! I don't think Pan de Vida will be the same since all of you were there! I look forward to reading some more of your trip.

Hi Ash--how awesome to hear from you. Lenny and I have been keeping up with your journey through your blog.
And yes, I don't think it will be the same either---but we kept hearing the word loco!
Just kidding. They were a fantastic group of people with a love for God.
Thanks for visiting...come back soon.

Lindi, I'm so glad to know you guys had a safe and productive trip. It sounds like everything went off without a hitch. My prayers were definitely with you all as you traveled and worked. Can't wait to see more pictures and hear more about Pan de Vida. God is good!
