Mexico Bound

This summer 180 Student Ministries is heading down to Mexico for the 7th year in a row. Each year we are blown away by what God accomplishes both in our lives as well as through our lives. Yesterday the 19 of us going this summer met together for the first time. We had a great discussion on what motivates us to engage in such an endeavor as well as what our expectations are. It was just good coming together to lay our plans before the Lord and anticipate what He may do with us this year.

The dates of our trip this year are July 24-August 4. Unlike years past in which we drove down to Mexico, this year we plan to fly to San Diego and rent vans to drive down to Ensenada. This will allow us twice the amount of time in country that we have had in years past. We are also very excited about partnering with missionaries Tim and Kathy Johnston. The Johnstons are church planters in Ensenada working specifically with the Oaxacan people. While there we plan to construct a house for a needy family, lead a children's ministry, help the Johnstons develop their new ministry site, and just be with the people to build relationships and share the love of Jesus.

If you would like to learn more about our trip, follow our progress in preparing, and learn how you may pray specifically for our team, you may visit our web site at www.180students.com/mexico07. It will be updated often. Please join us in prayer that God would equip us to not only serve Him well in Mexico but to live our lives on mission everyday, everywhere.

Oh man, now we have more reason than ever to get together for a coffee! I'm taking my 18th trip down to Mexico this year, bringing a ton of kids. It's my life's passion. Let's get our calendars to coordinate...SOON! :)
