Local c,hurches tal:e skills t,, Me :ico Member of two local churches eCently took their construction kills and ministry to Mexico. I In December of 1993, embers of Lost Creek and !den Chapel United Method- st Churches made their first rip to do mission work in lexico. Most years, two teams ,ill make the trip, usually in pring/summer and again in )ecember. Most recently, 25 nembers of Lost Creek and en Chapel spent May 24-30 io Bravo,,,, Mexico. The team ranged in age from 1 years old to over 70! The ,ast majority of the mission- tries were middle school and ligh school youth. There was ,omething for everyone to do luring these days of ministry. The primary task of the trip vas to construct a home for a 'amily of four. These are very ntimate mission experiences, viih most of the work and Lttention focused on the host 'amily. During the week, the earn gets well acquainted vith the family. Also, while he house is under construc- ion, there are planned and ;pontaneous activities with the :hildren of the neighborhood. The homes are humble by mr standards, measuring about t6x20, and they are built of :oncrete blocks. There is no ,'teetricity or running water. Each house will have a door, :wo windows, and a metal :oof. On one memorable trip, upon mtering her completed house, :he mother tearfully said, "I ew I would get a house, but [did not know I would get a nansion !" 'A highlight of each trip is the hopping trip to Wal-Mart on • last night of work. 7;The team collects their ney, and purchases special [finishing touches" for the tlles. This is not a required stan- lard practice for all teams rom everywhere, but it has ecome a special tradition of LC/EC teams. By this time, the team will lave "scoped out" needs and 'avorite colors. They will buy :tirtains, durable dishes, rugs '& the floor, towels, pictures, "llairs, tables, and many other terns to make the house a lome. The most important purchase uill be a Spanish Bible that a, ilJ be signed by all the team embers. On the last morning, the team ,vill return to the completed louse and join the family in a :eremony of blessing for the muse and family. Then the gifts are presented and good- byes are said. After the work is complete, there is some time devoted to fun. There is always a shop- ping day at Nuevo Progresso. This team had the extra bonus of spending a day at South Padre Island, too! Anyone would be welcome to join us on a mission trip. Each year, the churches travel into inner city Oklahoma City (Youth), two trips to Mexico, and one trip to Belize. If you would like more information about our mission program, you can contact the church office or on the web at LostCreekUMC.org.
