Here's the slideshow from Mars Hill.
July 15, from Rev Craig Bean:
Roosters crow loudly at 4am!
We struugle with the language, but great kids with awesome smiles!
Text from Rev. Craig Bean: "Working 2 Kids Clubs total 130 kids. Sports, crafts & teaching English. Also learning how what we do fits in with big picture of Servant Partners Mexico. We leave at 7am, drive 1 hour, work 8-6, then drive back. Evenings Jean Luc teaches us. All of us are well."

Our Mexico Missions Team arrived safely in Mexico City. Everyone is well! The weather is cool, but muddy. They are helping out with 2, 3-hour kids' clubs today. Their email is unpredictable, so updates will be limited until they return!
Five of us make up the MPC Mexico City Summer Missions team: Rima Bishar, Brian Wichmann, Andrew Kalemkarian, Jon Borror and Rev. Craig Bean. We leave early Sunday, July 11th (5:45am flight) and return Sunday night, July 18th. We’ll be working with our Servant Partners friends Jean-Luc and Shabrae Kreig.
Last month in a sermon based on Luke 9:1-9 (www.mediapresbyterian.org/media), I talked about what was involved with Jesus’ calling and sending of the Twelve.
Mother Teresa once said, “A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt; we must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace. The more you have, the more you are occupied, the less you give. But the less you have, the more free you are. Poverty for us is a freedom. It is not mortification, a penance. It is joyful freedom. There is no television here, no this, no that. But we are perfectly happy.”
