ADELA – “This trip meant so much to me but I didn’t even realize that I would get something out of this trip too. It wasn’t only about learning about them or helping them out I learned things about myself also. I also learned to appreciate the little things I have that some people aren’t blessed to have and also the big things. It made me look at things in a whole new way, like what can I do to try and make a change in my own community or even just help someone out. I honestly can say I can’t wait till the next trip!!”
JOSH – “Well this trip was honestly one of my favorite things I’ve done in life, and afterward I didn’t want to come back. I was going through a bunch of things at home and stress from school, but going to Mexico helped me forget about all of that. It gave me a heart for helping other people and made me a much happier person. Going made me realize that even in a less privileged home, we have so much compared to others in the world.”
CHRIS – We built the house in a few days. We built an outhouse for them in the side of the house and put a water tank on the roof. The day we gave the family the keys was the day I realized what we had done for this family. The mother couldn’t stop crying of joy she looked in disbelief as she stepped in the house for the first time. I was proud I made a difference in someone’s life, I had never done that before. It was an amazing feeling, a feeling of accomplishment, of pride, of joy to give to others.
