Mexico Mission Trip: Day 3 & 4

Sunday and Monday were great days of ministry for our team in Rosarito. Sunday included two church services at two different churches. The first was at Hope Chapel Rosarito, where our team got to participate in worship, performing their dramas, and the teaching. Pastor Sean preached about the parable of the Lost Son (Luke 15). Every time the team performs their drama and skits they seem to get better and better. After the service concluded we zipped over to Iglesia Cristiano: Nuevo Esperanza for a time of ministry. Our team performed their skits, shared testimonies, and prayed for the members of the church during the response time after the sermon. The students had a great time ministering to the two congregations and came back to the rental home full of stories and memories. You could really see the newly found passion for serving Christ at the conclusion of Sunday evening.

Monday could best be described as a day of labor as the team did a variety of work projects around HCR's campus. Our team pulled weeds, painted walls, sorted clothing donations, and scrubbed walls and floors. They did an amazing job taking initiative and working hard to serve the church. Pastors Don and Sandy were very grateful for all of our efforts in the day. We concluded our evening with a time of interactive discussion with the missionaries. This allowed for the students to ask the missionaries any questions they had about missions, Hope Chapel Rosarito, or ministry. It was inspiring to hear their many stories about how they trusted God and faithfully followed the call on their lives. It is amazing how quickly the trip is flying by; many of our teammates are shocked its already Monday night.

Please continue to pray as our team maximizes every moment to share the gospel in this community.
