       I am so blessed and excited to be working with and serving the people of Mexico this summer. As part of my field education through Duke Divinity School I will be working as a pastoral intern with the Methodist Church of Mexico in Tulyehalco, south of Mexico City. Two other divinity school colleagues will join me in Cuernavaca for intensive language training and then it is off the PREACH SERMONS, LEAD BIBLE STUDY, and make pastoral visits ENTIRELY IN SPANISH!!!

        The partnership between the Methodist church in Mexico and the United States is so important, now more than ever. There is so much that both countries have to learn from each other and I am eager to be in the midst of all this growth and progress. I am sure this summer will be a growing and learning summer for me in many ways, the least of which will be my language training. It has become almost vital for pastoral leadership (especially in Florida) to be bilingual in order to serve God more effectively and to meet the needs of the community.

         Below is the description of my trip from the Duke website. Please take a minute to read and pray. Any donation you can make will very much appreciated. All money raised will go towards trip expenses and school tuition. Thanks for taking the time to learn about this exciting opportunity. May God bless the Church, the Body of Christ all over the world. Amen.


Mexico

 

  • Students are placed at a Methodist congregation on the outskirts of Mexico City in the town of Tulyehualco
  • Students will visit congregation members, teach Bible study, preach, and participate in community outreach
  • Students practice their theological vocabulary and develop a deeper understanding of Mexican culture and parish life, allowing them to return to the US equipped to engage the Hispanic population in their communities
