For those of you who don’t know, I traveled to Juarez, Mexico with a coworker and her husband. We were there a week, with another small group of Americans, and were blessed to paint the inside and outside of a school building, stain a set of stairs and a play structure, re-roof a family’s house, and do some other fun things.
We visited two orphanages, which I mentioned in the previous post. My coworker and I also spent a couple hours in Juarez buying supplies for the school kids and finding their world-famous vanilla.
It was an incredible week. I haven’t ever laughed that much in a week! Our team was a blast, and we had a great time getting to know each other. We met many people and were encouraged by the faith of the Mexicans we spent time with.
As far as upcoming trips, we’ll all have to stay tuned to what the Lord is doing. :)
