Top 3 Part 1

Each person was asked to give their top 3 thoughts or reflections from the trip.  As they come in we will give them to you.

1) For me seeing the conditions of the country for my own eyes instead of seeing it as an informational video segment really made it real. We all see the videos of the people in other countries and then there is a request for money, I think we can all agree that if we didn't know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this does exist beyond out backdoor we know now.

2) This was covered but I think it is a good reminder to us all that we just came from an area that has so little but is so grateful for what they have. I think about visiting Santiago de Maria and then think of how much our house is worth or how much our car is worth and then compare that to how much someone in El Salvador makes in a month.

3) For me it is important to be able to take away one other moment of time during the week and say yes I was on this trip and no matter happens in the future, if mission trips are in your future or not, we all made a difference for the time spent was well appreciated and accepted by many.

1)  Let go of your expectations and be open to the unexpected.  It's often in the detours or changes of plans that we learn the most.

2) The poor are great teachers if we're ready to be students.

3) Prayer is as much about listening to God as it is talking.
