Cancun Mission 2012: Taken by Joy

Posted Monday, January 16th, 2012

BEACH DAY round two. After morning devotions we left Casa Bonita and entered “the hotel zone”. I’m sure you have seen pictures, but let me paint a vivid image for your brain. The ocean was basically a mix between blue raspberry candy, robin eggs, and my eyes. The sand was soft as a baby bottom and white like napkins. The sky basically looked as if a stellar athlete threw some gigantic cotton balls into a baby’s blanket. Beautiful? Yes.

After the beach we did a quick changeroo and headed to the UofC. Our amazing bus driver, Sergio, had to deal with a different group so we had a new bus driver that didn’t know the best way to get the University. We made it through the scenic route and arrived to find almost 15 people from Mundo De Fe to translate and play games with us. Such a huge blessing to have our team doubled by fellow believers and friends.

My favorite part of this entire journey has been seeing the joy in the people around us: in the children, the Pastors, and students. Lately, God has been showing me how to live my life with joy that comes from him through all circumstances. Even when I hurt or feel down, God’s joy is bigger than my feelings. Today I got a different perspective of joy through the eyes of the camera lens. While Chelsie helped in leading soccer, I took her camera and captured joy. I watched as our team interacted with both the soccer players of the University and youth from the church. It didn’t matter if there was a language barrier, what anyone was wearing, or the skill level, everyone had joy.

I am so thankful that God has shown me something in my own life to grasp from this experience. I have been able to build relationships with several players at the University and tomorrow will be difficult as we leave them for the last time. Pray for us as we show Christ’s love by our actions and words.

Cancun 2012: Beach Bloggin’

Posted Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Ok, so after church today we decided to head to the beach for tons of fun! We got off to a bit of a bumpy start, like literally a bumpy start, when we got into what you could call a fender bender (minus the bender, and substitute the side of the car for the fender) so pretty much a side-swipe in the bus on the way. It was fine, though, we got to the beach and found a nice soft spot on the sand. It was a little cold and the sun was not really shining, but we had a lot of fun anyway.

Mr. Tumnus and I played some beach volleyball and everyone just kinda did their own thing… there were walks and swimming and shopping and watching a drunk old Mexican man dance it up on the board walk. It was a fantastic experience! Then we got to go eat at VIPS… the “big people” ate at a different table than the “young-ins” and some people think the kid’s table got a liiiiiiiittle out of hand without adult supervision… however, I think it was great!
