remembering mexico mission trip...

{i am linking up with yellow songbird for "saturday snapshot"}

this shot is from the summer of 2003, when i went on a mission trip to mexico with a group from my church & other churches where i live! we were in a very poor area of mexico & we stayed at a church there for a week... (this was my 2nd time going to the same area.) we put on a daily vacation bible school for the kids. painted the nearby school & did other repair projects around the church & neighborhood. & we traveled to nearby churches to preform our dramas (without words). it wasn't all easy... of course, there was a language barrier. we had to take cold showers everyday. we slept on the floor. & almost everyone got some really bad sickness (worst headache of my life)... but it was all SO worth it!!! it was such a blessing from God & so many lifelong memories were made!

& here are a few more photos from the trip...
preforming one of our dramas... they were acted out & set to music only.

all of the girls worked on painting the school.

hanging out with some of the kids that came to vbs!


& the whole group, right before we left!
