The Presbytery of the Mid-South sponsored four mission trips to Xpujil, Mexico, this summer to build water cisterns. Robin Last was a member of a team that went in July. Trinity also sponsored two UTM students, Ashleigh Burton and Danielle Leggett, on the June mission trip. This Sunday, Robin, Ashleigh, and Danielle will share their experiences with us during worship. After worship, we will have a potluck lunch so you will have the opportunity to talk to them and learn more about the ministry.
Reflect on what you would like to know about the cistern mission. Do you wonder how long their trip was? Or what exactly they did? What is the area like? Where did they stay? Was the food good? What did they eat? What did they do on their free time? Did they have any free time? What did they learn? What was the best part? What did they like least? Would they do it again? Would they recommend the trip to others? What impact did the trip have on them?
Bring your questions on Sunday. Listen to their presentation during worship. Stay and enjoy a delicious lunch with them. Perhaps you will want to go next summer.
[F]or I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
— Matthew 25:35
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
— James 2:14-17
