We were able to go to Reynosa, Mexico, along with another family to help out in a children's home over Spring Break. It is the same place that Katy and Ryan had been (Ryan - 3 times) and so we felt it was a great opportunity for a family mission trip. We had never really been on a mission trip together, although Ryan couldn't go, since he was still away at school. I spent a lot of time fretting over what it would be like, since we didn't really have a good idea of what we would be doing. The men knew that they would be framing and drywalling, but we weren't sure what we ladies would be doing. I was also concerned that it would be too hot for me, since I have been having major hot flashes over the past few months (ain't 50 grand!) and that I wouldn't be able to hold up to hard work. Well, in the end, the Lord was gracious, providing wonderful weather and upholding me throughout the week. It was truly a great and rewarding experience. I am so glad that we were able to go.
Contrast is everything . . .
