For the fifth year, Greg joined 36 people from churches across Missouri, Illinois, and Kansas to travel to Phoenix and then to Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point), Mexico, to build homes for families in need. The two teams spent the better part of 3 days in the desert building two homes, camping, and worshiping together. We look forward to this God-given opportunity every year and to how He will bless the team and the family we get to serve. It's hard to explain how amazing and humbling this experience is each year; to share a few days with a family and learn something about who they are and how they live, to work alongside them and watch them get so excited over a simple two-room stucco house that is smaller then most of our garages, and then to come home and be thankful for the comfort and safety we live in - and realize how much "stuff" we have that we really don't need to be happy and content.
This video captures just some of the experiences, work, memories, and fun from this year's trip.
