The 2013 Builders of Hope Trip

On Sunday, May 26 ten members of the LIU Post community arrive in Tijuana, MX to build a house for a family.  We'll dig, mix cement, lift bricks and put up walls.  We'll visit an orphanage run by the Sisters of the Sacred Heart, experience the border as a Mexican does,  have a chance to shop and absorb the local culture.

We'll do our best to keep this blog up, but the internet can be a bit sketchy.  We thank all the people who donated and made the trip possible.

Please pray for us while we are there.  The work is hard, and like any construction work has it's own hazards, but also pray for us because we'll be tugged through every emotion possible.  Finally pray for us that we'll be able to see where God sneaks in.

Pope Francis wants the church on the 'outskirts of society,' bringing the Good News of Christ to the poor.  This is a very 'concrete' way we do that.
