Crewmembers spent three days in an area called Jujutla, and stayed with the community in order to teach them ways of sharing the gospel. Of the 400 people living there, around 50% of them are Christians.

The team of volunteers focused on mission and taught the church members different creative ways they themselves use to share the Good News with others. They taught various visual tools to express the message, one being the ‘paper cross’, which consists of telling a story while folding a sheet of paper, tearing it, and eventually revealing the shape of a cross.

Liz West (South Africa) recalled, “They were so enthusiastic to learn. It really impacted them and they were so excited. Whatever we taught them, they’re going to run with it, I’m sure. The pastor was encouraging them and they would say, ‘Teach us more!’” As the youth group went out to use what they had learned, one man gave his life to Christ.

In order to encourage the church further, Yoshi Ulziikhuu (Mongolia) explained that even though he was born in a Christian family, he had never been interested in God. But through becoming aware of his own sin and guilt, he decided to turn to God for forgiveness. “I confessed to God, and He gave me peace. I found an interest for Him, I wanted to know Him, so I started reading my Bible and reading Christian books, which I never used to do.” Yoshi linked his message to mission: “I know God loves me and He loves other people, so I need to tell them how much God loves them.”

As well as the lessons taught, Logos Hope’s team brought practical help to the community. The team tested people’s eyesight and gave each person who needed reading glasses a free pair. They also handed out 50 pairs of ‘The Shoe That Grows’ to children. The shoes can be adjusted as the children's feet grow, so a single pair will last several years. “I was touched to see how people appreciated it,” Liz said.

After their three days in the mountains, the crewmembers shared that what had touched them most in that time was seeing God at work.
