Mission to Mex

August 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Amped out of my mind right now cause tomorrow we leave for La Mision, Mexico. We will be staying at an orphanage there and doing construction projects, while working with the orphans.
I just got off the phone with an old friend, Jeff O, who has seen his own hard times in following Jesus and was really encouraged by what he is doing now. He started a site called bandofspiritualbrothers.com where he is focused on building up and highlighting men who are passionately following Jesus.
It made me realize that when we go to Mexico, I know that a need will be met by us… But that it is actually meeting my needs just as much. As a man fighting for my Faith, the faith of the next Gen men and the faith of my family. Going to mex is about getting outside my bubble and my problems. Going and helping young men and women who are just like me, but given a much more difficult hand of cards to play.
I am so undeserving and realize my circumstances are not as a result of my effort or intellect; my place has been given to me.

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
