In about 6 hours we will be on our way to the airport to start our trip to Monterrey, Mexico to help out at back2back ministries. Makenzie’s employer, Will Housh of Housh Inc., supports the Cincinnati-based orphan ministry and takes anyone on staff who is willing to go down to Monterrey each year. We decided that if MaKenzie was going to go at nearly 6 months pregnant, then I would be there too. Our decision behind us both going was we want to be a family on a mission and not just individuals coming together under the same house. So, in attempt to make the team aspect more of a reality in the Dykstra household we decided this was an experience for the both of us (and now, coincidentally, 4 of us – Maebyn will be spending 6 days relaxing with both sets of her grandparents).
We’ll only be in Mexico for 6 days but it should be an adventure. We will greatly miss our little Maebyn but we are excited to see what The Lord has for us in Mexico. It should definitely be interesting with MaK being pregnant with twins. If you think of it, say a prayer for the entire team going and ask God to use us in a way that only He can. Can’t wait to share our experiences and excited to join the rest of the Housh Inc. team in the 102 degree weather!
Til next week,
