One of my dear friends has gone to Mexico the past couple of years and she brings me the sweetest trinkets and jewelry. I treasure them because they are made in Mexico and most importantly, remind me of her adventure and her passion for the people and for God.

She says, "Its a place near and dear to my heart.... Words really can't express how much that place means to me and how much it has changed my life."
I've never been. I can't tell her story. But, I can share her passion. And her stories. And the stories of others who went with her.
A couple of blog posts:

Matthew 25:40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
God bless the international missionaries. Remember them in your prayers!
