This summer I will -for the first time- be going on a mission trip.
I will be staying eight days in Mexico in a city close to Guatemala.
Honestly I didn't even know I was going till the first of March when our leader for the trip called my dad and asked if he wanted to be the worship leader and let one of his daughters help with the music. Since Katie (my sister) will have just turned fifteen which is the required age to go it was decided I would go with him.
At first we didn't know if we could raise the money it was due the first of May. So Mama was looking around on Facebook at her friends pages who have been on mission trips before and asked what was the best way to raise money. There were some great suggestions bake sales, host a dinner at a church and so on.
But before we did any fundraisers though God took care of the need.
There will be a meeting that will tell us more info about the trip this Sunday afternoon -looking forward to that-.
This is my first time going on a mission trip, my first time traveling outside the country and my first time riding on a plane. So this will be a lot of "firsts" for me but I still can't wait to be able to have this opportunity to share the gospel outside of my own country.
Although I hopefully won't be like Alexandra Rover off of Nim's Island. You know the one who freaks when she is on the plane ride.? Ha Ha just kidding
I 'll be posting more about this trip in the weeks to come.
