Stories Of A Student

The Love of Jesus

On Sunday we went to Mexico to visit a church and bring the kids toys and clothes. We ran into some trouble crossing the border which delayed our arrival time by a few hours, but the people still waited for us at the church.

As soon as we got there we immediately started playing with the kids. At first it was hard because I do not speak Spanish, but the love of Jesus transcends all languages.

After we finished playing we went up behind the church to the pastor’s house, where you could look down the hill and see the houses. After seeing how little the people had it really made me thankful for everything I have. It encouraged me to see how these people still love God and are thankful for every little thing they have.
