On June 5 (almost) all of our 12 summer Avancistas arrived! One missed his flight and joined us a day late. For three days we stayed together in a hostel at the heart of the city for a packed orientation to life and ministry here in Mexico City! The experience was a valuable one for Kevin and I because, Paul, our director, was at a retreat in the States so it was a bit of an orientation to what our responsibilities will look like when Paul and Nydia are taking a small service leave for the second half of the summer and we will be on our own! Below is a photo of our group (YearOut leaders included) right before they went off to meet their Mexican families! Please join us in praying for Kate, Lizzie, Hannah, Jasmine, Jessica, Aaron, Petr, Stephanie, Karalee, Canaan, Amanda, and Daniel this summer!
