In December 2019, a group of 12 people from Life Church, travelled to Reynosa, Mexico to build a home for a family living in the city dump. Below are pics and videos and stories from the trip.
ECHOING HOPE STORIES:
The mission trip to Reynosa, MX was life changing. I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone; not knowing what to expect. When we arrived in Mexico I felt like God was doing heart surgery on me. I was over flooded with emotions. We went there thinking we would be a blessing to the people and in turn they blessed us. I thank God for His goodness and I saw Jesus in the faces of the children of Reynosa. The children were like little magnets to us, they had no fear. We played with the kids and loved them like they were our own. We saw such poverty, but the people seemed happy and content with what they had. I was humbled by the whole experience. I watched the Mother of the home wash her family of 6’s clothes in a tub with a wash board outside with no hot water and she was happy. God was forever present in everything while we were there and I thank Him every day for His goodness. – Karen Dagenhart
