Although up north the freeze is still in effect, here in Mexico, we’re preparing for spring. Spring Break, that is.
This Saturday, 10 members of the Chi Alpha Student Fellowship of American University will be descending on the city of MÃ©rida, YucatÃ¡n to do a bit of construction and outreach while they thaw from this year’s deep freeze. In the mornings, we’ll be working at Instituto BÃblico Bethel, to put into place the beams and slabs that will serve as the structure for the roof of the second floor of the multipurpose building. In the afternoons, we’ll be returning to Sierra Papacal to assist the efforts of my former student, Guadalupe Campos, in the church, Casa de OraciÃ³n. My favorite part of the trip, however, is the opportunity for our Bible school students to work hand in hand with our visiting Chi Alpha workers.
We’re preparing a warm welcome for our guests, but we certainly don’t want to leave you out in the cold. We’d like to extend an invitation for you to get involved, too. Here’s how:
- Pray for the trip’s success:
- Pray for safety in our work and travels.
- Pray for the health of all involved. (Pray against sickness!)
- Pray for the effective integration of the different groups.
- Pray for an enthusiastic response among the people of Sierra Papacal.
- Send a special gift
The Chi Alpha students have a goal to bless the ministry that is taking part here in the YucatÃ¡n. You can be a part of helping them realize that goal.
Navigate to our giving page and send a special gift. Put AUXA in the comment section, and we’ll be sure to designate that gift to the projects in which they’re taking part.
While you might not be able to bask in the Yucatecan sun with us, we’re sure that your participation, in one or both of these areas, will bring some warmth to your weary winter days, and, just maybe, you too might be thinking that spring is in the air!
