Youth Festival Provided by Parc-Way Cruise Group–August 2011


The energy and enthusiasm demonstrated by the Mission Team (30 teens and adults) from Parc-Way Assembly of God Church in Indianapolis was incredible as they led a youth festival for 100+ children and adults hosted at Vida Abundante, a local Assembly of God congregation in early August. Parc-Way dedicated their Cozumel cruise port-of-call to this youth outreach effort by providing fast-paced active learning opportunities for children including music, dance, juggling, lessons about Jesus, crafts, games and LOTS of FUN . . . all in Spanish!

It was a GREAT personal cross-cultural experience for all involved. In the beginning, some of the children were a bit timid and afraid of “foreigners” who towered over them in height . . . but the warmth of Parc-Way’s Mission Team and personal greetings to the children as they arrived as well as the FUN atmosphere soon led to new friendships.
