Jarrick, Gaige (age 13) and Jade (age 10) came to visit and work with our Mexico ministry around Galeana, Nuevo Leon. Jarrick is Stephen and Tonyia’s son and he and his family are from Boerne, Texas. They decided to come see us rather than spend their spring-break in a more touristy area. For the kids it was mostly a time when there were no electronic devises and they had to learn how to interact with others who only speak Spanish and live in a different culture. They returned to their home after experiencing life in Mexico in a way most Americans have never seen. The three helped deliver meals to the elderly on Tuesday and were part of kid’s club on Wednesday. They were part of our ministry in other ways too.
But, it was not all work as we also made a trip to the Puente De Dios (Bridge of God), El Salto waterfalls near the town of Zaragosa and made our way up the side of one of the largest mountains in Mexico. In the end they returned home tired, but satisfied their week was like none other they had ever expierenced. They vowed to come back. Below is their story in photos.
