You are going to look at this picture and probably ask
- "What am I looking at here?"
Can you see the dummies? Oh, I mean the puppets? Yes, you guessed it! We are doing a puppet show in a baptistry in Mexico City!
What? You can´t see that? Well, that´s what we are doing. Of course we hardly knew enough Spanish at the time to do a puppet show, so it was all done by a recording and we just moved the mouths. The kids loved it!
It was my first missions trip. The year 1991. I was 15 and the youngest on the team. It was my first time out of the country. My first time to do a puppet show. My first time to use my Spanish. (the little I had studied in school) My first time to know God was calling me to the Spanish speaking people. I fell in love with the culture and the people!
I have lost touch with everyone else in this picture. Maybe, I ought to try to Facebook them.
The impact of this trip lingers with me still today, as God has called me to be a missionary wife to the least reach Spanish speaking country in the world.
