On Monday morning I arrived at the Calvary Chapel Training Center in La Gloria, TJ where I will be spending two months as a missionary intern.
It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to leave. I think the hardest part for me is not being able to get in my car and go an adventures with my best friends. But it has been really neat to spend more time with the Lord and draw closer to Him.
The first week has been pretty smooth, a lot of it has just been learning how everything works here at the training center.
During the week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday there is an after school program called Niños del Rey (kids of the King), the kids walk to the training center and are given a homemade meal and then there is a Bible study and time to work on homework and play with their friends.
On Thursday we went to El Ejido where many kids go and hangout once they're done with school. During this time we were able to do worship, have a devo and simply just play games with the kids.
On Monday we will begin our missions class and have a busy week prepared for us. I am really excited to see what else the Lord has in story for these next two months.
Please continue to not only pray for me but the other two missionary interns as well as the staff here at the training center.
