On Saturday, 88 people from Indianapolis, St. Louis, and Connecticut will meet in San Diego for the annual Mexico trip. Many of us will arrive as strangers, but that won’t last long. By the end of the week, we will resemble the Acts 2:42 church.
It’s exciting. There is something to be said for being bonded in Christ. We connect easily because of who we serve. We also find out identity in Him. That’s what our theme is for this year: What is my identity in Christ? As we work on building homes for 3 families, we will also be learning about ourselves. We will learn about four facets of our identity in Christ. We will learn about each other. We will become the Church in a palpable way.
God has a way of breaking me down before this trip, and He uses the trip to rebuild me and restore me. It’s God’s way of shaping me into His image. I’m sure it’s the same with others. I can’t wait to see what He does this year….
