More from day 6!
Service team finished over half the play place this afternoon. It is going to be a really cool tool to minister to the kids here at Ciudad Deseada Church. Check out the great photos of our service crew!
Children’s team went to a school in the morning and ministered to about 75 kids. Tess shared her faith story. The kids loved the songs! In the afternoon they went to a community center and performed and played with about 30 kids. Matthew shared his faith story. He has become kind of a celebrity because he helps our evangelist and shares the Gospel colors in Mandarin.
The med team saw 258 patients today! The clinic was spacious and organized on an open air soccer field. I was able to walk down and snap a few photos. This team served from 9am-8pm today! They are amazing.
The mime team saw the Mexican Guatemalan border and they actually stopped and prayed for Mexico for an open door to communicate the Gospel and to reach communities for the cause of Christ. The presentation at the school was close to 90 degrees. There were about 80 people in attendance and about 20 decisions for Christ. Later that day the mime team joined the sports and drama team and performed in front of about 300 athletes at the end of the soccer clinic! The mime team passes out a little card in Spanish with a website that students can use to connect and grow. After passing out 300 cards we didn’t see even one on the ground left behind.

The outreach event was canceled due to problems with the stadium organizers and location. We were hoping to play soccer and draw in the youth from this community to hear the Gospel. I realized a few minutes ago that through these soccer clinics and games, God has already done that.
So we had a private time of worship and teaching just with our Wooddale team back at the church. I taught the students from Philippians 1:1-6 and encouraged them that perfection is not something that we should pursue, it’s something that God does in us. Our pursuit is Christ and Christ alone!
We ended the night chatting on speaker phone with the Chicago team. All of the siblings on both trips got to say hi to each other. It is always a special time.
We travel to San Marcos tomorrow!
Thanks for praying! Talk to you later.
