Thanksgiving Day in Mexico
We are going to Mexico over the Thanksgiving holiday. We usually go to California and are driven over the border by the group we go with. The trip starts on a Wednesday and we actually start supporting churches in the area on Thanksgiving day. We have a wonderful time of fellowship early Thanksgiving morning and then we have a lunch of Thanksgiving dinner. After lunch we have more worship and we are divided into groups. The groups contain usually 5-8 people and each person is given a job. There is a leader, a prayer person, an encourager, a resource people who works with AV equipment, etc. We go out into groups and invite people in the community to a local church. We then prepare to present a DVD or a puppet show for kids etc. We have a local service around 6 or 7 o'clock on Thursday and Friday. Then we go back to our home church for dinner.
