Sunny Sunday Salutations from Baja!
What do you get when you unleash nineteen Dayspringers who are catching or possibly passing their fourth wind on a cement pad in the town of Vincente Guerroro?
2 beautiful homes, dusty clothing, a bunch of slivers, faith, love, and gratitude!
The light of hope which surfaces in a mother and her children’s eyes when they see their future slowly crystallize before them in the form of a shelter is one that we will never forget; it will be forever imprinted on our hearts and souls. It has been a distinct and genuine pleasure to serve and build. Bruises, scrapes, dust swirls, hammered fingers instead of nails, stiff muscles, laughter, sweat – did I mention copious amounts of sweat? – and a multitude of other consuming challenges failed to deter us from our enormous endeavour. Our fourth and final day of building has proven to be fruitful, fulfilling and phenomenal. As we embark on the final part of our journey, gratitude, humility and enlightenment will serve to govern and guide us towards our final outcome: building a home.
