I had the opportunity 2 years ago to visit Chichen-Itza! I wouldn’t say it was a “bucket list” thang, but I’m glad I had the opportunity to see this place in person.
I will say this, if you are planning on going, try to be there as the “doors” open. We were one of the first folks in the place, and by the time we left, around 1pm, there must have been several thousand people roaming around the place!
My friend Dave Miller, who is Executive Director of Adventures in Life recently blogged about the Chupacabra and the importance of staying connected to those you are ministering to in the missions field.
The Taco Bell dog is no Chupacabra, and I don’t think anyone is gonna turn and run at the sight of this guy…but it was the first thing that came to mind when I thought about the dreaded Chupacabra! If your not familiar with the Chupacabra, feel free Google it or you can read Dave’s blog on Missions at Notes from Dave or you can go HERE.
In all seriousness, if you have ever been on a short term missions trip, or have a desire to serve Jesus, be it next door or in Timbuktu…you will benefit greatly from reading his blog post.
I have had the blessing to photograph with MISSION focused in Mexico with Adventures in Life. So I have seen the work of AIL firsthand and can relate to his post.
If you don’t like his post, then no harm. At least you will be aware of the difference between the Chupacabra and the Taco Bell dog.
