Today. What can be said? How is it even possible to put in to words all that God has done?

Today started the same as every other day...but from 10am on it was quite different! We left our accommodation to head to the house build sites. We were scheduled to do the dedication of the homes. What does that mean? I’ll tell you! The Ten Days crew gathers together around the house recipient to pray for them, encourage them and turn over the keys to them.  It’s like a big WELCOME HOME party ☺️ A beautiful young lady named Anna was the recipient of the home we worked on this week. She and her three beautiful kids have a new home as of today!

 Welcome Home, Anna and kids!

After we dedicated their homes, we walked up a giant, GIANT, hill to the site where we were hosting a Fiesta for the community where we have been ministering all week long. Clown ministry, game/craft stations, soccer, baseketball, 2 minute miracles, a gospel presentation and FOOD await these precious people. Our very own Kate Maynard was in charge of organizing all the game and craft stations. She did an amazing job in the “organized chaos” event. 600 people attended today and it was glorious! The caterer was prepared for only 400 but GOD MULTIPLIED THE FOOD! We had more than enough to feed all of the guests and the team. It was amazing! 

 

 That is one GIANT hill.

 In case you parents are wondering if your kids pick up after themselves on youth trips, they don’t. We leaders are curious about their rooms at home?! 😝

One last thing for the day...I wish you could hear your students sharing what God is speaking to them. They are wise beyond their years. We are challenging them to take this truth back home...to live loudly for Jesus back home...because of its just for the mission trip, then they’ve only had an experience and not true life change. Will you believe with all 29 of us that came to Baja from IFC for this time to be a true altar in our lives? That God would be glorified in us tomorrow on our last day here...and when we return home to the place God has called us to for such a time as this.  

We will miss being at IFC tomorrow. There’s no place like home.  

We love you.  

PS. Tomorrow you will hear from the leaders and what God has shown them this week. 💚
