Alexa Returns to Mexico!
Organized by: Alexandria Lee
It's my 5th year as a teacher, my 5th year out of college, and my 5th year going on missions with Morningside UMC! In addition to that, it is our 9th year in partnership with Hands & Feet Ministry and what a blessing it's been. Last year I had the opportunity to go to Central Asia, and this year I have the opportunity of returning to Mexico for the third time as a co-leader of the entire team (a group of 17 individuals ranging from middle school to adults). This year has been such a huge year of transition for myself and for the church. I have finally finished my masters degree in Adolescent Literacy and am in transition for employment. At church, our own pastor who has served faithfully for 14 years is also transitioning forward. Through all of the change God has reminded the church and reminded me of such a calling to remain steadfast.
I hope you can partner with me as I return to Piedras Negras, Mexico from July 18-25. In this short amount of time the team will be involved in several ministries: continued construction/maintenance at the Nava School (which our church has witnessed being built from the ground up - literally), Vacation Bible School, evangelism, programs at various orphanages. In addition to our work, we also continue to return to Mexico in support and encouragement of our brothers and sisters at Hands & Feet Ministry.
God's call to remain steadfast has not been the easiest, and I hope that you will consider financially supporting me as an act of encouragement. Above all, I will need your prayers and intercession! If you cannot support me with any monetary gift, but would still like to pray for me, please let me know. Through the gracious support of my family, I only need to raise $450 more by July 11th! Feel free to reach out with any questions!
