Who Am I? What is my identity? Mexico 2011

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….

    So excited for you guys! I look forward to hearing about all the great things that God does in and through you on this trip. Plus a week worshipping with Dilbeck–very cool!

    Love that you’re still leading this trip Jose! Praying for you guys … for God to blow your hair back with fresh love from Him … and for you to show His love in new ways to the folks you’re serving. Matt and I will look forward to hearing all about it during our visit with you and Nicole in a few weeks. Happy and safe travels! Janie

    Oh, I’m not leading the overall trip. That honor belongs to Greg Smith. I’m just helping lead the spiritual aspect of the trip. But to serve my people in a way that points them to God…yes…I love that. See you soon!!
