The Blizzard Effect

There is an old saying. We human's make plans, God laughs. I hope God isn't laughing, but I had hoped to fly out today, but I got a call last night saying my 8:30 AM flight was canceled. I used my cell phone, home phone and skype phone to call to Jetblue and finally got through. The very nice agent got me on a flight on Saturday to LA. I'm going to enjoy a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway to San Diego. Sure glad I have flight insurance on my credit card.

Builders of Hope 2011 Here we Come!

With the winds howling and snow blowing the call to Tijuana was all the stronger! We head to Mexico to build homes again 12 strong. This year is the 10th Anniversary trip. It is hard to believe that 10 years ago Andy Valdez, Reggie Padilla, Sunil Persaud, Julianne (Lovejoy)Gonzalez and myself headed to Baja California without really knowing where we were going and what we were doing. We got lost on our drive down within the first 5 minutes in Mexico. Yet even with that, it was a great trip.

This year we head down with:
Jeanette Murray
Audrey Yip
Valerie Montreuil
Andrew Cordero
Christie Cardinal
Minseok Lee
Michael Riggs
Fr. Ted Brown
Jeanette Murray
Miguel Montalvo
Ryutaro Takada
Megumi Nishimura
Yuya Hagiwara

We hope to post a blog every day so watch what we are up to! There will be reflections, interviews and videos! Be sure to pray for us!

We'll have tales to tell for sure!
