Family of Christ Lutheran Church from Ham Lake, Minnesota made their second trip of 2017 and third since November as their ministry partnership with our mission continues to grow. In November, a team of adults replaced the roof of our kitchen building with a new metal roof. In March, a family trip saw a house get built in Juarez and several small projects around the campus completed. This trip featured primarily members of the youth group and the plan for the week was a new home build and hosting a Vacation Bible School at Iglesia Luterana Santa Bilblia (formerly Sin Paredes).
The VBS was very popular with the children throughout the neighborhood featuring games, crafts, stories, and more, while the house building team quickly made work of their project, ensuring both events would be a success. The team was able to paint the exterior of the home and provide a beautiful plaque for the family asking God to bless the home and all who enter.
With the completion of their VBS and home build, the busy first month of summer events at our mission came to a close. Over the course of the month, 6 families were blessed with new homes, hundreds of children heard the good news at VBS, and people all across Juarez were witness to the lives changed through the acts of kindness of others from across the United States.
