Last month, December 2012, I went on my very first mission trip and this is a photo of our team. Let me introduce you to everyone. From the top, left to right: Trey, me, Amber, Jessica, Stephanie, Granny, Vanessa. Middle, left to right: Daryl, Bob, Jeff, Rob, Grant. Bottom, left to right: John, Shawn, Grant, Ronnie, Bob, Danny, Cory.
I feel bad because I can't recall where everyone is from, but I can tell you that our team represents at least four states. We were all brought together by God, to do work in His name. I am so thankful that I was able to be a part of this team.
I went for weeks thinking that the next mission trip I could go on would be in July, and the timing of that one just isn't right for me this year. It would take a lot of sacrifice on my part, and I am praying about that. But then last week, Trey posted on Facebook that there is a trip this month, and it just so happened that there was at least one person that ended up not being able to go. I immediately sent him a message telling him that I was very interested in going.
Fast forward a few days. I spoke to Trey, got the details on the trip, and told him that I would have to talk to McD, but that I would get back with him. He gave me twenty-four hours. Six hours later, I told him that I was going!
I am so thankful for this opportunity to go and serve our Lord!
It is a new team, and I will only know one person (Trey) going. So, I will get to meet new people too!
If you don't mind, please keep me and the rest of our team in your prayers as we go to Mexico City.
Now, what are you thankful for today?
