Dear Parents, youth and leaders participating in Mexico 06 Mission / Vision Trip: I truly feel God has called us to go to Mexico this summer not just to “do work” but to experience God’s love in a deeper way. In John chapter 1, Jesus first called the disciples into ministry. They asked, “Where do you stay?” He said, “Come and See” (John 1: 38-39). Today Jesus is calling believers to be a part of His ministry. Mother Theresa said that to follow God is to be His hands and His feet in service of others. Jesus is inviting us to come and see where He is and to share in what He is doing. Where do you find Jesus? “Come and See”. It is my prayer that this trip will give all of us, whether you are going or supporting us from home, a more clear vision of who Jesus the Christ is and how he calls us to follow Him. Following Christ’s call does not give us a right to be comfortable but it opens the door for us to receive a deep love that can only come from our Creator and Savior. Following Christ is not the path of glamour and privilege but is the call to demonstrate Christ’s love and to serve others, even before ourselves. Whether we are going or remaining at home, may we all hear and respond to God’s voice in a new way to “Come and See”. May each of us walk each day that is ahead of us, even if we are uncomfortable, humbly and expectantly as Jesus leads us on to a deeper more intimate relationship with our Father and Creator. This Vision Trip has been made possible through God moving in and through many people who want the youth of this church to grow in their relationship with Christ. We thank Ray Cobb, our Session, and the International/National Ministry Team for their blessing and prayers for this trip. We are able to go and catch this deeper vision of Christ, His people, and even ourselves, because of the countless hours of sacrifice and love for you and for Christ by the following: Where Is Faith Ministry/MDF, Inc.?

What does Faith Ministry/MDF Inc. have to do with Starfish?
When Deantin began this Ministry, he felt that the enormity of the extreme poverty that he saw in Mexico was more than he could handle. He didn’t think he could do it. He came across a story that became kind of a hallmark for him. It was about a young child and his father on the beach. There were thousands of starfish that had been left on the shore by the tide and were slowly dying. The boy, realizing that the starfish were suffocating began throwing them back in the water; one by one. The father in an attempt to scold the boy told him that he was wasting his time because there were too many starfish to save and that it wouldn’t make a difference. The boy, with pure honesty that comes with innocence, reflected on what his father said, and replied; “Well, it made a difference to that one…” Deantin saw that like beached starfish, the ocean of people trapped in soul wrenching pit of a failed economy and barriers from lack of education or opportunities; that this ocean was made up of individuals. His load lightened as he focused on lives and souls one at a time, instead of mass condition. Code of Ethics for Travelers
1. Knowing that you are in a foreign country, you must always stay in groups of 3 and a leader should 2. Travel in a spirit of humility and with a genuine desire to know more about the people of your host 3. Be sensitively aware of the feelings of other people, thus preventing what might be considered offensive behavior on our part. This applies very much to photography. Always ask before taking pictures of people. 4. Cultivate the habit of listening and observing, rather than merely hearing and seeing. 5. Realize that often the people in the country you visit have time concepts and thought patterns different from your own. This does not make them inferior, only different. 6. Instead of looking for that “beach paradise”, discover enrichment of seeing a different way of life 7. Acquaint yourself with local customs and language; people will be happy with you. 8. Instead of the Western practice of knowing all of the answers, cultivate the habit of asking questions. Cultivate the habit of listening. Earn the right to be heard. Listen and learn before you share your opinions. 9. Remember that you are only one of thousands of tourists visiting this country and do not expect 10. When you are shipping, remember that the “bargain” you obtained was only possible because of 11. Do not make promises to people in your host country unless you are certain you can carry through. You may want to help an individual, but it is better to help the community (ask your leader how). 12. Spend time on your daily experience in an attempt to deepen your understanding. It has been said that what enriches you may rob and violate others. Source: Tourism in the Third World: Christian Reflections, Ron O’Grady, New York; Orbis Books, 1982. pp 64-65 Recommended Shots
