Mexico Mission Trip

I recently went back to Mexico on a short trip. I didn’t travel with the group. My family actually went down to see our friends where we used to live on the border, and then I met up with the team (walked across a 2 mile long bridge in the middle of nowhere!).

One neat thing about this trip was that the group of 40 or so were from 5 different churches (and different denominations too). We all had one singular purpose. Like most of my posts, allow me to let the video do the talking.

I edited this for this morning’s church service using photos and video I took as well as other pictures from others in the group.

Mission Trip

Here’s a quick edit for Sunday’s Spanish service of some footage taken on the mission trip.  The song is by Jesus Adrian Romero.  It speaks of a the abundant harvest and the scarcity of workers.  Then it says, “Here I am, send me.”  Enjoy the sights of Hidalgo, Mexico and pray for the ongoing ministry in these places.

Back from Mexico

I’m back and swine flu free! This blog is covering the trip- http://bpfmexico.blogspot.com/.  I’ll probably post something personal later.  Now I have to capture 2 hours of footage from the trip.

Mexico- Aztec Country

November 7, 2008 Leave a comment

Recently I went down to La Huasteca- the mountains in the state of Hidalgo, Mexico.  There are remote villages up there where Spanish is not even spoken.  The music you hear on this is in this dialect.  God is opening doors there.  In one of the villages I went to, the missionary was threatened with his life several months ago.  They blocked the road and had their machetes out.  But we were there recently and no problem.  I’ll be going back in January.  Let me post something from an upcoming article of mine in Christian Video Magazine:

 About one month ago I took a trip into Aztec country in the mountains of Mexico.  I was able to minister in several villages where the church is just beginning to grow.  In some of these places there has been persecution of Christians.  In most of these villages Spanish is not the first language, and many do not even speak Spanish.  I know Spanish, but I don’t speak or even understand there other dialects.  I went ahead and brought my laptop, as the missionaries asked me to.  I had my doubts about using my multi-media presentation of music, moving images, and illustration videos.  I was thinking that I was not in Kansas anymore.  But to my amazement the videos did really well.  Those that could not understand Spanish could relate to the images.  Some saw things they maybe never have seen before, but were moved by it.  There was a lot of positive feedback.  Those services could’ve gone all night, but many of the people had walked hours in the rain and mud to get there and had the same journey to make to get home again.  I’m going to get some new material and go down there again soon.  It was a wonderful experience seeing their faces light up. Video played a roll in this ministry.

Of course God is doing a lot more down there.  Video is minor in this case.  But please pray for continued success in this ministry and for more doors to open.  Here’s a slide show with pictures:
