Builders of Hope 2015 Ready to Take Off

In just a few days another group from LIU Post Newman Community will be heading off to make a difference in a Tijuana neighborhood.  Fourteen members and friends will be lifting cement buckets, shoveling gravel, digging foundations and playing with the kids.   This is trip number 15!  Over these years we have worked on 32 homes, 1 school and 1 community center.  We've delighted the children at a local orphanage, given encouragement to a few elderly couples and hope to a family who had resigned themselves to living in a nailed together home of old doors and few boards.

Last Sunday we celebrated Pentecost, where we prayed "Come Holy Spirit, Renew the face of the earth."  How does it get renewed?  When people let the Spirit in and then do what they can.  We like to say Newman is renewing the face of the earth 250 square feet at a time.  We work with God to make the world a better place.

We hope to have a blog up every day beginning June 1.  Sometimes the internet is sketchy or our days are long.  Watch for us though.  Something will be up almost every day!

Also you can catch your pictures and videos at: https://www.facebook.com/2015buildersofhope

Watch us work, pray for us and pray for the people we are serving!  Newman for Good!

Want to email us words of encouragement?  Leave a note here or on the FB page and we'll read them at dinner each night!

Thanks for all the support!
