Annual Mexico Mission Trip

Over the Veterans Day holiday weekend, Kitty and Greg went to Mexico with 11 other people from our church to again build a home for a family in need. This year we were joined by teams from two other Midwestern churches and together we built a double-sized home for a larger family with four young kids.

It was hot, it was sandy (the van got stuck a dozen times!), the days were long, the work was tiring, but ... it was fun, it was worthwhile, it was amazing, it was a blessing!


The new home, family, and crew ... the old "house" (tent & shed) ...


... mixing the concrete .... framing the walls .... personal time ...


... wall panels go up .... the roof is added .... applying the stucco ...


... children's home visit .... kids in class .... jumping rope with Kitty
