It takes a lot of team work to make a successful trip. Just think about all of the different skill sets required. We need to have expertise in water hardware, education, accounting, translating, dentistry, local contacts, and local directions only to name a few. And, when you think about it, if any one expertise is lost, Agua Viva cannot achieve our objective.
I am always amazed at how these skill sets come together. There is something about “depending” on others that draws us together as Brothers and Sisters in a special way. We don’t seem to get much of that at home. It seems to be partly due to the fact that we are all operating outside of our comfort zone and we are all trying to do our part in an “un-familiar environment”.
For example, I really depend on Mario Mejia. I just don’t know what I would do without him. I really depend on Curt Mader. I don’t know what I would do without him. I really depend on Dr. Gaugh. You don’t want ME pulling any teeth. And, this just goes on and on. There is something about doing God’s work that really brings a team together in a Christ-like way. It is hugely satisfying. It is also very efficient. No arguments required. Everyone pulls in the same direction… doing God’s work.
Honestly, I don’t know anyplace else where I have experienced this. Pure team work. Boy, if could figure out how to bring this same experience into my work place, there is no limit to what we could do.
Great team work everyone !!
