Daykin’s Perspective

Today was a great day as we got to build our final house for the family. It was a great experience for all of us as we got to see the face of the family when we finished their house and gave them a quilt and soccer ball. We got to paint our house bright […]

The Dump and Tent City

Today our group was assigned to go to the dump and then visit the corresponding tent city. The dump was a shocking but inspiring place. We were ushered in by security guards and then directed to where we could go. It was another very bumpy ride through large rocks and debris to the top of […]

Jonathan’s Shares His Dump Experience

After going to the dump today we went to a small village nearby to hand out the rest of our hot-dogs, water, toothbrushes and toothpaste. The interns at MCM called the village the “tent city” because the houses are mostly just tents or small shacks. The tent city was very quiet and calm in comparison […]

Vanessa’s take on Day 3 in Mexico!

Day 3 in Mexico was a great day. It began with a speaker talking about what we are going to do with our lives- are we going to live for ourselves or live for God. For many of us it was a very challenging talk. After that it was off to our worksites. The one […]

Time for Mexico!

Sunday afternoon and we have just crossed the international border into Mexico.  A little excited nervousness as the USA fades from view and we see just exactly what Tijuana, Mexico looks like.  Quite a contrast as we new it would be but an eye opener just the same.  Spanish signs everywhere.  We stopped at the […]

A Church Like We’ve Never Seen

Sunday (June 28) Today we visited the Saddleback Church. The sermon today was The Power to Live Your New Life. The pastor, Buddy Owens, spoke about how when we have the spirit comes into our lives, we have power through Christ. However, we cannot do things by ourselves. Anything that is done for God must […]
