Who We Are
Send Chelsea Scriber This will be my second time going to Mexico with my church. Each year, we partner with Amor Ministries to build homes for the homeless and needy in Mexico. This year, we'll... be going back to Tacate, which is a poor suburb of Tijuana. Last year, we were able to build a home that we would think was just a woodshed, but to the family we build it for, it is a roof over their head and shelter from the sun. Neiborhood kids watch with interest as we build the house from the foundation up using no power tools at all, including mixing the cement by hand, building walls one nail at a time with our hammers, tarring the roof, and chicken wiring and stuccoing the outside walls, a process that takes less than 4 days. Last year, the family labeled us "ants" because we worked so hard. When asked why we would spend our spring break to do this, our only reply is "to show the love of Jesus Christ". We even pull the neighborhood kids together and give them gifts (crayons, books, yo-yos, Spanish Bibles, and soccer balls) and share watermelon with them. We'll be doing another VBS style ministry with the kids to help them see Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior, and friend, not just some random person they've heard about. We'll be pouring into the kids and the family to share the love of Jesus Christ in a real, personal way that will lead them to have a personal relationship with God.
