Today’s work has gone by so quickly. We started out with an assembly line to move several piles of bricks to appropriate locations. When enough cement were mixed, we began laying bricks to build walls. There were some visible progress, including new walls that show an approximate outline of the house. We had a chance to hear from the father of the family, who sincerely thanked us and told us that he was getting close to his dreams and plans that he made a few years ago because we had helped him. Shoveling and mixing cement can be tedious and tiring, but the work is worth it when you know that you make a difference in someone’s life. I can’t believe that tomorrow is the last day at the worksite!
As the 4:00AM bus ride approaches, we are getting many emails addressing the Team Mexico. We are all really excited for the food, warm weather, and houses and relationships that we will build in Mexico. I can’t wait to make visible differences in to-be-friends’ lives there!
