Mexico Mission Trip - Day 7

Thursday was our last and final full day down here in Mexico.  It was so great to end the trip with a bang.  We spent the morning and afternoon working so hard.  The whole team split up into groups and did amazing work around the campus.  Some did landscaping around the church and created a new parking area for the church.  Part of the team finished creating the new soccer field for the youth group which included new goals and chalk lines.  We also were able to convert an old fountain into a new fire pit.  All of which we used later that evening.  In the evening Hope Chapel Rosarito had their youth night, Remedy, and we got to participate.  We dedicated and played soccer on the new field and had dinner together as we watched a picture slide show of the week.  After dinner HCR prayed for us as a team that we would go back into our communities and continue to share the love of Jesus.

Below are a few pics from Remedy tonight...

After youth group we concluded the week with an extended team debrief time in which everyone shared their thoughts about the week and described how they hope to bring an aspect of their trip home with them.  It was an emotional time for many as we shared our experiences and encouraged each other.  Following our debrief we enjoyed the new fire pit with the Godwins and Bainbridges.  The day was a great way to end this trip; it was filled with hard work, open sharing, times of serving each other and having fun with each other.

Thanks to everyone who supported us and made this trip possible.  We couldn't have done it without your prayers.  

Muchos Gracias from the Uturn Jr. High Mexico Mission Team.


  1. The trip was a lot of fun and I really was changed. I hope that other people join us on these un adventures!!!

  2. You guys made an impact here, no way around it. Last night we had a wonderful Good Friday service; but afterwards, instead of hitting the donut table, many hung around my computer, wanting to see pictures of you guys, enjoying memories of our time together here. I assure you that you WON'T be forgotten here. We are different because of you. You made a huge impact and we can't wait to see you again. But until then, be assured of our prayers and love for each one. God bless you guys... (Don Godwin)

  3. Oh my gosh! That was the best week of my life! Thank you so much Godwins and Bainbridges for having us! God really changed me and gave me strength to make it through the week. I was also called to be a pastor!
