Mexico City Update – 4

A few things to update you on…

  • Saturday we had an “off” day. We spent time at the park playing football with some of the Mexican people and then they taught us how to play soccer. It was lots of fun spending the day playing in the park. We told Nate (our wonderful youth minister) that he could play only if he toned-down his competitiveness. Nate is the most competitive guy in the whole world, and we enjoy spending time teasing him about it. He was able to keep himself under control (for the most part). :)
  • Saturday night a handful of us went to Lucha Libre (yes, a Mexican professional wrestling match). How could I ever live with myself knowing I had a chance to watch a cultural event such as Lucha Libre and didn’t go? So I decided not to deprive myself of this pleasure and I watched the great “Mistico” defend his title. It was too fun.
  • Sunday: Worship with the church in Mexico City was amazing. The singing was tremendous and the communion time was very moving. I wish everyone could experience worship in another country. It’s a “out-of-your-comfort-zone” experience.
  • The other morning I was the first to get up so I made coffee. I drank half the pot before someone else finally got up. When they did they asked me how I made the coffee and I replied, “like I always do.” I realized I’d made coffee with the water we aren’t supposed to drink. I made it with water from the faucet instead of bottled water. To this point … I still haven’t gotten sick. Yea, dumb move on my part.
  • Update on kids … A hand full have sick, but only off and on. Nothing serious. Good thing we have a couple of fantastic doctors with us on the trip. Tomorrow we take a trip outside the city to a little community. There we will be working, serving and giving clothes away that we brought with us. It will be a long, hard and fruitful day.
  • Thanks for your prayers and your notes. The kids have sure enjoyed the comments from home. A few pictures are below.

    Everyone knows that coffee cures all diseases; have no fear…

    But I’m worried about the orthodoxy of the Mexico City church. They call that communion? Where are the metal trays? The tiny plastic cups? The Matzah bread? You mean they don’t do things the way the apostles did?

    Seriously, I’m thrilled you’re exposing these kids to something different. It’s too easy to think that everyone lives the way they do in Childress, Texas.

    Grace and peace,

    Glad all is well. Dr. Craig, waiting on our chat. I think it’s your turn to buy lunch!
    God bless you all.

    I laughed when I saw your shirt in the first picture, standing out like a sore thumb! Ha.

    But seriously, I think it’s neat that you all are being exposed to worship in a different way–I think it stretches us spiritually.

    What is this about an “off” day? I don’t remember any “off” days two years ago and I could have used one. You guys enjoy the rest of your time and have a safe trip home. We’ll see you Wednesday!

  12. Liz Moore says:

    What a great work y’all all doing. May God continue to bless your efforts there. Blessings!

  13. Dee O'Neil Andrews says:

    Thanks for the great “travelogue” Trey and many blessings to you all.

    As for the coffee – the water system for our new house apparently has “boil water” notices all the time so the coffee I make may be about on the same level as what you made there!

    Much love to you all!

    Jel & Tim … drank the water and still alive (knock on wood). Hopefully the coffee cooked all the bad stuff away. It is the drink of choice in my life.

    Pauly … the kids have loved your posts. Erin said to get the Mustang and she’d be okay with what ever color you pick out. ha

    Thanks for all the blessings…

  • it's still early. :)
  • no worries. Luke is a very popular gospel during the Christmas season. 😜 #BabyJesusStory
  • Mitch Moreland has a combined 1.6 WAR since the start of 2011 at a premium position (DH/1B). That position needs to produce.
  • definitely don't disagree with that. We will miss his glove. But he had such a quiet bat for someone at first base.
  • I only disliked him when he was at the plate.
