Mexico February 2019

I have been able to do so many things in my life because of the relationships that I have built over the years. I have the opportunity February 16th to travel to Vicente Guererro, on the North Western peninsula of Mexico. We will be staying at a YWAM base and building a house for a family there. I build things every day at work, so it will be a blessing to be able to use my gifts and abilities to serve a family that may never have the resources to build a home on their own.

There has been so much controversy and political division over the relationship with our neighbors in Mexico, I believe as the church, we are called to bridge to gap and show God’s love and character despite what government and political agenda may be saying. I have been given so much, how could I not seek to give back to people who are in need.

Thank you, and God Bless.

I had two smooth flights this morning, Saturday February 16th, now I’m in San Diego waiting on Jimmy in the awesome sunny weather of Southern California. It’s good to travel, to go to new places, and experience culture again. I am so blessed to be here and traveling internationally for the first time in over three years.

Sunday February 17th, today we went to visit the site where we will be building a house for a man named Ramon. He currently lives in a small wooden house that many of us in the United States would consider to be only good enough to serve as a back yard storage shed. He is grateful for what he has, but we are so blessed to be able to build a larger home for him this week.

It is such a blessing to be able to give something to someone else who will never be able to repay you, I enjoy these trips so much because the Lord, Jesus has blessed me so much and this simple house build is able to make a huge impact in Ramon’s life. He has a wife and two children who will now have a much nicer place to live than the shed that they lived in before.
