In all the stories Tori told me about of her Mexico trip experiences one in particular stayed on my mind. One of the missions students name is Jessica. On a trip of exploring the city the group stopped at the Pyramids in Mexico City. Everyone started climbing to the top to see the view. Jessica has Cerebral Palsy and made it up the steps successfully only to realize the steps were to narrow to safely walk back down. After brainstorming safe alternatives the group decided the best thing to do would be to have her scoot down the steps. In order for her to not have to do this alone and be embarrassed the whole group decided to scoot back down with her. They were there to serve the people of Mexico. I loved to hear about the heart they had to serve and love on each other as well. Here is the pic of them scooting down the pyramid together.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
