Driving home from Florida has been more than we bargained for. You expect the vans to be filled with a variety of conversations, singing, and sleeping travelers. And we’ve had plenty of all three. But after our dinner stop at Chick-fil-a and Zaxby’s (which included an opportunity for some on the team to pray with […]

Today marks the end of our group’s service at St. Martin Community Center for the week. We can hardly even believe tomorrow we’ll be back at Taylor.

We started out the day by waking up at 5 am. The team decided to get up early to watch the sunrise! It was so beautiful to see the sun come up over the mountains. We were near the lake at El Sembrador so everything was reflecting off of the water. Then we had an […]

Our final day, Thursday, at SOS was a mad dash to finish as much of our projects as we could, and time wasn’t on our side: storms were predicted for the late afternoon. Fortunately, each team was ready to work hard and fast, and we all accomplished much before the storms showed up, right on […]

Joyful, different, heart-opening, reassuring, laughter; these are just a couple of words we chose to describe our trip. It really is true that not a second goes by that we don’t have something to thank God for in this beautiful city of Mazatlán, Mexico. God is doing such great work here, and amazing things through […]

On Thursday our group was in the classrooms again, and we had evening English classes at the church as well as a pizza party! After lessons in the evening, some of the team members performed the “Everything Skit”. It was a powerful skit that many of the students were touched by, and the students told […]

The number 750,000, depending on what context it is used in, can be either overwhelming or unimpressive. In this case, it is the number of children that face their early life cramped in orphanages throughout Russia. Through The Boaz Project, Taylor students are truly given the opportunity to “…visit orphans and widows in their afflictions” […]
