Some of you may have heard that Rod and Mayra Fry are teaming up with Dave Miller and Co. of Adventures in Life Ministry to offer a brand new internship beginning next summer, 2015.
The dates are from June 22 through August 4. The first part of the internship includes an orientation time in Mexico City, then 3 weeks of urban ministry with the Frys, doing all sorts of creative, relationally-based outreach. Our “bread and butter” activities include English classes in both public school and community center contexts, sports activities and tournaments, wheelchair distribution, art classes and mural painting, music classes and concerts and much, much more. The power of the gospel flows through the Word of God communicated in a context of love and friendship. It’s exciting to be a part of that!
The second half of the internship will be spent in rural Oaxaca, and although the scenery will change from urban sprawl to corn fields and quaint villages, the focus of reaching Mexico with the transforming message of Jesus remains the same. Among the many focuses of Adventures in Life Ministry…kids camps, sustainability projects such as family greenhouses, fish and rabbit farms and water accessibility, and an emphasis on learning about Oaxacan culture, festivals and food! Dave won’t miss an opportunity to take you to the best eatery, or roadside hole-in-the-wall with tasty culinary treats. Your experience will end with a brief debrief in Mexico City before flying home.
Both Dave and Rod have over 20 years of experience in Mexico. Although their ministries are different, their philosophy is quite similar. Gospel proclamation via pretty much anything they can think of, benefiting their respective areas of influence through good works and Good News. Have an idea? They’d love to hear about it!
