We Need You!

"What I do you cannot do, but what you do, I cannot do. The needs are great, and none of us...ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful."- Mother Teresa of Calcutta

This quote captures the heart of ministry and touches us deeply. If we have learned anything in our preparations for ministry in Mexico, we have learned that we are not capable of great things. This truth can be discouraging or it can be liberating. We must admit it's been a little of both. We are nothing on our own even if God has called and empowered us. Without the power of being united with our brothers and sisters in ministry our greatest dreams and plans will fail. When we began the process of fundraising, we took for granted the partnerships we were forging with our friends, but now that we have come to realize the importance and power of "together" we are extremely grateful for all of you who make great things possible.

Although we have come a long way on our journey towards Mexico, we still have room for more people, more "together." As Mother Teresa said, "...together we can do something wonderful." We want to invite you to join us as we do what you cannot do and rely on you doing what we cannot do, so that together we can do great things. This is an invitation to a relationship not just with us, but with the many others who form this "together." Please consider partnering with us and we will reach Mexico for Christ.

You may want to partner with us through our 10/$10/10 campaign (see 5/13/2008) or you may feel led to join us differently. Just email us at jandjmexico@gmail.com and tell us how you want to participate in ministry with us.
