“Mexico was an amazing experience for me,” said sophomore MaKenna Paszek,” It showed me that I am so blessed. The kids at the City of Children don’t have as much as we do, yet they are far more grateful than any of us.”
2,096. 4 miles away on the Baja Peninsula, a group of NCS students and faculty partnered with Lipscomb University, to serve and love on orphaned children of Ensenada Mexico. The group stayed one week in June, and was able to also give food and supplies to families that had nothing.
Many of the students that went to the City of Children returned feeling humbled and blessed because of the amazing opportunity. “I made so many relationships, not only with the kids, but with the team members as well. This trip taught me so much about friendships while also making me closer to God.”
The mission team consisted of Nashville Christian students, faculty, Lipscomb University students, and included two NCS alumni. The group was able to bond and show love the orphaned children in the City of Children, while along the way felt blessed about all of the great things they have.
As junior Noah Sherman said, “Just being able to serve Christ while being able to fellowship with y’all and make new relationships with people was really important to me. I’m really glad that I got to spend a week of my time to be able to get to know Mickey even better too. I have been on a bunch of mission trips before but I liked being able to spend it with my NCS family and having that memory to share with them. It helped me put my thoughts on the important things and not the stupid things that don’t matter.”
