Return to the Yucatan

The team in SacalumIt’s hard to believe it’s over… Chi Alpha had more than 2 weeks packed full of Jesus serving goodness. I wrote earlier about Passion Week but the pinnacle came one week earlier. I was able to take another team to work with my brother Dave in the Yucatan.

There’s so much to say about what happened. We saw students taking amazing steps of faith. It was the first time for 3 of our students to preach (in very public places no less), the first time for some to do drama, speak Spanish, dig a foundation, even to go on a missions trip at all. We took faith-filled steps and God met us. The gospel was preached in our words and our actions.

One of the most rewarding parts of the trip was seeing the result of our work last year. At the end of that week, we met a man named Daniel. He was a member of the church in Muna and the tour guide for our visit to the Mayan ruins of Uxmal. During our time together, he mentioned to Dave how much he liked our presentation and that he would love to develop the church’s evangelistic outreach. That conversation opened the door for Dave to begin training church leaders in sharing their faith. Together, Dave and Daniel set up opportunities for us to work alongside trained church members sharing the gospel in 5 different communities. Amazing–and to think it all began on our day off from “missions work!” I thank God for the opportunity to see the impact of our trip first-hand and I can’t wait until next year.
