This past month has been CRAZY to say the least! We were married on June 20th in Macon, Georgia and our wedding/reception was nothing short of perfect! Our wedding was held at Martha Bowman and the reception was at the Brickyard country club....we had a blast! We then honeymooned for a week at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It was just what we needed - a week of relaxation on the beach :) We came back to Georgia to hang out with our families for a week before packing up and making the road trip out to El Paso! The drive was a long one - 1500m miles. But we finally made it. We are now moved in and unpacked and our little apartment is starting to feel like home.
For the past 2 weeks we have been building in Mexico. Last week we built in Acuna (Lindsay's first build) and it was HOT HOT HOT! We built with First Baptist of Beaumont, Texas and they had been coming on mission trips to Acuna for 10 years so they knew of some great restaurants and some much needed swimming holes.
This past week our team was from GEORGIA!!!! It was a nice surprise to hear some southern accents Monday morning :) Made us feel a little closer to home. We were in Juarez this week which was a blessing because it was not as hot.
We are so blessed to be out here to serve the people of Mexico. The need for suitable housing is beyond comprehension. We are eternally grateful to the groups who come out and build because without them the whole mission of Casas por Cristo is not possible.
Please pray for us as we continue to serve - our next build is in 2 weeks and we are excited! It's a lot of work, but it is more than worth it!
