My name is Merric and this is my fourth visit to Misión México.
Misión México is an inspiration to me. I first visited in 2004 and I have known many of the young adults since they were young children.
They have been able to develop skills and knowledge through education, the commitment of Pam and Alan and the many volunteers who come to share their professional knowledge and skills.
It is great to see opportunities opened up for them so their hopes and dreams can become a reality.
Coming back on each visit and seeing the developments and accomplishments of the children is a humbling and joyful experience. I have had the privilege to share my skills in piano with some of the kids, Sammy, in particular has shown great learning ability in the practice of the piano.
Sammy has a keen interest in piano and watching him develop so quickly and take on board what I have to teach him has been greatly inspiring.
I am currently visiting to assist in the landscaping of a new educational and surf training facility, MisiónSurf. I am thrilled to be involved with such a major project that will bring much needed jobs, educational opportunities and tourism to the Tapachula area.
This will allow the children to put into practice the skills and knowledge gained through their education.
I feel privileged to be able to share the skills and abilities I have gained through my life and to be able to share in the lives of these amazing individuals as they grow.
