Mexico Mission Trip Reflection 2019- Final Reflection

 

April 2, 2019

Well, after six days and lots of miles traveled, I find myself outside on a gorgeous patio overlooking the rolling hills of La Jolla. It’s a stark contrast from the gravel campsite that housed myself and the rest of my WCC family for the past few days. These two places are no doubt very different in appearance, but they are equals in the sense of safety, love, and joy provided. This trip is truly unforgettable to say the least, and I hope that my two $7 disposable cameras can show my loved ones just how incredible it was. In 24 hours, I will be sitting in front of my Spanish teacher; no different than any other day I will find myself wanting to be anywhere but there. In the past my mind has wondered to summer days on the lake or sleeping at home in my bed, but now I’ll be reminiscing on the time when my hair was so dirty stucco chunks filled my brush or when I wore three pairs of sweatpants, two sweatshirts, a jacket, and two pairs of socks to bed… in Mexico. I’ll be remembering the week I spent immersing myself in an environment different than my own, and hopefully remembering what it taught me. Firstly, not to pity those less fortunate than myself, but to love the opportunity that I have to help families raise their children with as much support as mine raised me. I learned that faith isn’t going to church every week and believing that God can heal all things wrong with the world. Faith (to me) is believing that there is good in every situation and believing that I have the power to bring that to light. Most importantly I learned my definition of home; the people and places that bring out the best parts of myself but accept everything else in between. My home is the friends I’ve made on this trip, my home is Gabe and Jordan (always J), my home is Wayzata Community Church, and the most incredible part of this is that my home was built around a two-room stucco house in Tecate, Mexico.

 

Sincerely,

Sophia Gabrielson

Mexico Mission Trip Reflection 2019- Heading Home

 

This was our last day in Mexico 🙁 . We woke up at 6:30 to the sound of Bohemian Rhapsody being sung by the adult leaders. We had our final breakfast of tacos and beans. After breakfast we had our last devotion on the campsite, Brady Ross shared his story about building families and it was wonderful. We then packed up all of our stuff and got ready to go. We prayed with the kitchen crew and Amor and said “thank you” for all the things they had done for us this week. After that, we all got into the vans and headed for the border. The line at the border was very long and we bought churros and Coca-Cola from the vendors there. We waited in that line for about an hour, but the crossing was smooth and short. From there we drove to In-N-Out and had burgers and fries (yummmmmm). The weather was super nice so we all sat outside to eat and we met a pet wolf (at least that’s what the owner said)!

After that, we climbed back in the vans and headed to the YMCA for our FIRST SHOWER!!!!! It was awesome. We got to swim and play basketball at the YMCA for a while and then went to Torrey Pines church that we would be staying at overnight. The church was so nice and it looked like an actual college campus, or as Brady put it, “The La Jolla Hogwarts”.

After we unpacked our stuff a bit, we went to La Jolla Cove. During our drive, my van was blasting the radio and singing and everyone was so happy. Darby said it was one of the best moments of her life and I agree. Everyone was so genuine and happy and I am so glad I got to know these people throughout the week. At La Jolla Cove, we got to walk around and look at the sea lions and they were so cute. The sun was setting on the ocean and it was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. I took a moment to just appreciate all this beauty and soak it all in. We ate a picnic dinner in this park area and just watched the sun set as we ate pizza. This night was so perfect and I can’t imagine a better way to end this trip. Once back at the church, we circled up for our last worship together. We sang songs in a circle and had a “Say So”, where we shared our faith journey and what this trip has done for us. It was a beautiful and touching moment to be able to share our faith and express our love for this trip and for all of the people we gained friendships with throughout our time together. I am forever grateful for the friendships I have gained on this trip and am so blessed to have had this experience. It is amazing to me how most people come on a mission trip for the sole purpose of helping others, but in reality, the people you meet on the worksite and the people you spend your time with help YOU to grow in your faith and as a person.
