What a crazy couple weeks we have had!
We made it to Mexico and back safely! We had a wonderful time, worked extremely hard and were completely exhausted by the time we got back. But it was worth it.
We finished the house!
What a blessing it was to hand over those keys.
The family was overwhelmed, as were we. Its always humbling to be used by God, such a reminder of His love and grace in our lives.
Heres our lovely team:
The sweet family that we built the house for:
The "house" they lived in before we built them one:
My amazing co-leader!
We had a "fun" day in San Diego before our flight home and I was so happy to see an old friend of mine. We met in Australia, where we were bunk-mates, and then spent 3 months in SE Asia together. It was so refreshing and exciting to see her!
Once we got home, we had 2 short nights in our comfy bed, then we went camping for the weekend with family, which I will talk about later.
OH, and while we were in Mexico?
This dear friend on mine had a baby girl!
Welcome to the world Claire bear, you are so loved already!
On the day she was born (Sunday) I just HAD to mark our work day somehow:
Tomorrow a friend and I are heading down to Portland to welcome Claire properly. It will be a quick trip, but I am so happy to be able to spend a little bit of time with Claire and Michelle.
