I’m Going to Mexico

Posted By Chris Giovagnoni On August 13, 2008 @ 10:10 am In Country Trips | 16 Comments

I’m going to Mexico! And I want you to come with me.

I was left behind [3] once, and I’m grateful it wasn’t in the “missed the Rapture” sense. Because of that experience I will do my best to make you feel like you’re in Mexico with me.

I’m going to Mexico as a co-leader on a sponsor tour [4], not as a Compassion Blogger [5].

My first responsibility on the trip is to support the sponsors who are traveling with us to meet their sponsored children [6]. However, you will always be in my thoughts.

I intend to:

  • upload photos to our Flickr photostream [7], and I’ll add the best ones to our Flickr group [8], which you can see in the sidebar under Your Flickr Photos.
  • tweet – send regular text updates of what’s going on – so follow us on Twitter [9]
  • write colorful and moving commentary you’ll find here, on this very blog
  • take some Blair Witch/Cloverfield amateur-style video to share with you when I get back
  • eat lots of beans and rice
  • hug lots of kids
  • et cetera

I don’t sponsor a child in Mexico but if you do, and they’re at one of these child development centers, let me know. I will TRY to get a photo of your child for you. I cannot promise anything other than I’ll try.

The child development centers are:

  • The King’s Children Ambassadors Student Center (ME-730)
  • The Jesus’ Friends Student Center (ME-737)
  • The House of Bread Student Center (ME-708)

Please don’t leave your child’s name or number in your comment. Just let me know you have a child at one of the centers and someone will contact you via email to get the information.
