MISSIONARY JOURNAL – NOV 09 MEXICO TRIP – NO MORE WORK

Thursday 11-26-09 / 10:05pm @ the chapel @ FMC Mission House in General Cepeda, Mexico

Another day, another abundance of blessings. Today was our last day of work projects since tomorrow is desert day. We finished hauling up cinder blocks and sand that was being used to build a bathroom. We also hauled up and connected some pipe for the sewer line from the toilet. After we finished, we headed back to the mission house a little bit early to get ready for Thanksgiving dinner. Even though it’s not celebrated in Mexico, we did it anyways. People from the community were invited to celebrate with us. It was a great time of joy and fellowship. The rancho visit tonight was amazing also!

I know that sometimes we receive consolation and comfort from God, and tonight I was blessed with that. It seems like from the moment we got there until the moment we left, I felt joy and happiness and was smiling. Whether it was talking and joking with each other as we went door to door to invite people, or whether it was seeing the smile on the kids’ faces, there was joy. It seems like the adults were really joyful too. Seems like no matter what was going on, I couldn’t help but to be joyful and smile. 🙂 I gave my testimony tonight, and as nervous as I was, enjoyed that too. These poor people who are so rich in faith and who are so dear to Jesus’ heart, blessed me so much by their presence and their faith. Most of them came up when we broke up into prayer teams, and that was an amazing witness as well. Once again, their beautiful souls brought me joy and I could see Christ in every one of them. Thank You Lord for such an amazing blessing and help me to grow in these graces! Amen!
