2020 was the first year we haven’t taken a team to Mexico and it wasn’t for lack of trying. We had a trip scheduled for March and the rescheduled it for August and both trips had to be canceled due to COVID 19. The world experienced a pandemic and we were unable to take our team down.
Typically, each year, we take a group of volunteers grade 9 and older, down to Mexico to build houses for families. In the community where we build, people live in hastily made shelters, with walls made of scraps, no locking doors, and roofs that are far from waterproof, nothing to keep the dangers of the world outside. So every year we travel down there to build modest houses that allow these people to do things we take for granted, like locking their door and feeling safe from the elements.
This is the experience of making a difference globally, but something happens after we come back, we find that our confidence that we can make a difference at home jumps to the next level. We feel empowered to help as we have never felt before.
