Mission to Mexico

This January 1-9, we led a mission trip of Life Teen Summer Missionaries/College Students on a mission to General Cepeda, Mexico with Family Missions Company. We were so blessed to be reunited with friends from FMC and our Mexican brothers and sisters. The highlight of the mission for us, though, was probably getting to journey with the missionaries who had come with us, seeing the Lord move in their hearts and open their eyes to the beauty of mission life and also the possibility of a long term call to it. We were able to walk with them as they realized that this life is not only blessed and beautiful, but doable. All the Lord needs is our YES! Erik and I were renewed in our desire to share this life with others and continue praying for the master of the harvest to send out laborers into the vineyard.
“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38
