Mexico Mission Trip Update - June 5

Hey everyone! We did it! These last two days have been a whirlwind.

We finished the house and gave over the keys and a Bible to bless the sweet family that lives there now. That evening we had the chance to meet with a local Pastor named Carlos. He told us all about the before and after of a family getting a house, his own testimony and what it’s like being a pastor here in Peñasco. It was so amazing to hear from him and get a flavor of what’s like to live and serve people here full-time. We ended the day with a great discussion around the fire.

Today we were invited to the house we built last year to have lunch together with that family. They made us some delicious ceviche and we ate it like ravenous wolves. Now we are at the beach for the rest of the day to celebrate all the great work these kids have done all week. I was particularly impressed with our one Freshman, Kevin. Despite being the only Freshman, and not knowing anyone else on the trip, he stepped up and did an amazing job! We gave him the honor of handing over the keys and Bible to the family.

This has been an amazing experience for all of us and we will not soon forget all that God has done through us and shown us. Tomorrow we head home with new perspective.

Thanks again for your prayers.

Mexico Mission Trip Update - June 4

It’s crazy to think that we built a house in two days, but here we have it. We showed up on day two to an empty shell and left it with a roof, windows, doors and a single coat of stucco! We are heading back for one more coat and then we are done!!

So as a special treat for the group finishing so early, we are gonna head to the beach for an extra day after work is done on Wednesday. This has been an extra ordinary few days and we are all looking forward to handing over the keys to this awesome family.

Thanks again for all your prayers!

Mexico Mission Trip Update - June 3

It’s been another record breaking day for us here in Mexico. With everyone’s great attitude and strong work ethic, we were able to get our foundation finished and all of our walls constructed and put on the slab!

We had a great day with wonderful weather and everyone is super excited to see what we can get done tomorrow. God is truly blessing everything we are touching. We had a few neighborhood kids show up and help us as well. It’s been a blast and we all can’t wait to see this project finished and hand over the keys to a truly deserving family.

Your prayers are truly making a difference. Thank you and keep them coming!

Mexico Mission Trip Update - June 2

We’ve made it! We had a very easy and enjoyable trip to Puerto Peñasco Mexico! Everything went really well.

We got to the camp right on time today, got our tents up and went straight to the work site to check things out. We met the father of the family we are blessing with a new home and he was very excited to get things started. We also went to the greatest chicken restaurant on the planet right and everyone has high spirits and can’t wait to get started building tomorrow!

Thank you for all your prayers. God has been watching over us so far. Keep those prayers coming!
