Our team of 10 said our final good byes Saturday morning to Laura and Pilar, two of our awesome guides this past week, before heading to the airport.
As I sit on the plane heading back to Nashville I can't help but relive some of the great moments we had. Playing soccer with the kids, painting crafts and houses (and each other), talking about God on the beach and interacting with some of the most genuine and kind people God put on this earth.
It was the trip of a lifetime, and it was an honor to bring y’all along for the ride through the means of this blog.
But this experience would never have been possible without the many donations, the prayer warriors along the way, our friends and families and Lipscomb Missions.
We cannot thank you enough for helping to send us to serve and do God's work with the help of Baja Missions. Each and every one of you were present in our time in Colonet and Diaz Ordaz. Your presence was felt and appreciated by both communities there. And trust me when I tell you that you helped to forever change so many lives this week. And for that I cannot thank you enough.
I do, however, want to ask one more favor of you. I ask that you will continue to pray for this group of 10 as we go our separate ways.
Dee is starting grad school at Iowa. Abby and Kasey will return to Lipscomb to begin their junior and senior years respectively. Riley embarks on a new journey at a new university. Morgan and Ally start their first year of college this fall. J.J. and Alex return to Lipscomb to continue to impact the entire athletic department. Caroline begins another school year of teaching young minds and I start a full time job back home.
Life will go on for all of us, but I ask that you pray that this week will always remain in the forefronts of our minds. Pray that we will remember the feelings we had in Mexico and that we will use those feelings to impact the people we encounter every day in the United States.
Thank you again to everyone that made this trip possible. We could not have done it without you.
Until next time,
