Mexico Mission Trip: Day Three

Saturday was a full day of ministry as these students were given plenty of opportunities to share the love of God. After breakfast and a group Bible study we went out to a local neighborhood to serve lunch. We grilled up some hot dogs and handed out drinks and gospel pamphlets. Part of our team did a skit that was both hilarious and a great illustration of God's message of freedom from sin. Following a brief message we were able to make balloon animals for all of the little kids in the neighborhoods. Of course many preferred for us to make swords and hats rather than the traditional dog. After all the kids had balloons a massive balloon sword fight ensued. It was awesome to see our team bring so much joy to a neighborhood.

Following our local outreach we were able to attend a local Foursquare church in northern Rosarito. We ministered with them for a tremendous Saturday night service. Both of our drama teams performed and did a phenomenal job. Their skits were so well done that they clearly illustrated the points being made during the service. At the conclusion of the service we were given a chance to pray for the church and then the church prayed for our team. It was a powerful night full of God's anointing. Its always amazing how God can minister through someone and bring truth that a congregation needs to hear. The church's senior pastors were very thankful for our time there and really felt blessed. They even extended an invitation for us to attend their sunrise service at 6am. (We politely declined, but were grateful for the invite)

After our time at the church we went out for a late supper for some street tacos. They were absolutely amazing and so filling. I'm sure the whole team is going to be begging to go back before the end of our time here.

Thanks again to everyone who has been supporting us and covering this trip in prayer. Please keep it up, God is doing great things, but still has more in store.
