This past August, I got a phone call from my mother telling me about the opportunity I had been given by the members of my church to go on a mission trip along with my twin sister, Abbey, to El Salvador. I was so excited when I heard the news, for this would be my first mission trip – something I had longed for and prayed about for quite some time.
I thought to myself, “This is finally happening!” I was so overjoyed and ready to being planning and preparing for our week in El Salvador and ways to serve the people there. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that the mission trip opportunity really just “fell in our laps.” God ultimately provided everything for us. Having a twin sister, things can get pretty expensive sometimes. I learned soon after this phone call took place that some members of our church, the Senatobia FUMC United Methodist Women, were completely paying for our trip! How great is our God that he blesses us with exactly what we need.
Over the past few months, I have had the pleasure of meeting with and getting to know the members of our Senatobia District Mission Team. In addition to my sister and me, there are 10 other members from our district churches. At our meetings, we have carefully planned out each aspect of our trip, including the Vacation Bible School we are hosting for the children in Ahuachapán. I am so excited to be a part of this, for one of my favorite types of ministry is children’s ministry. I look forward to being a part of something so incredible for God’s kingdom.
As we are on the trip June 25-July 2, please keep this mission trip in your thoughts and prayers. Be in prayer for the mission team, for safe travels, for the citizens of Ahuachapán, El Salvador, and for the love of Christ to be shown throughout all that we do.
We will be posting throughout the week! Keep a check on the Senatobia District Website.
I have been informed of a nice upright piano in a home in Tunica that is free for the taking, but they need it moved by the first of next week(around June 6th), call me @ (662) 292-2459 if your church is interested.
