Day 2

Day 2

Today’s schedule got a little reworked, as there was a funeral being held at the church. We fed the children breakfast, and then most of us took them to a local park to play for a couple of hours. A few of us were privileged to attend Gadiel’s graduation ceremony (a local guy from the church here who graduated from high school). It was a really

Day 5

This week has been filled with building a house and playing with kids. We headed out this morning to a local park to minister to homeless immigrants. This for me is always a huge highlight on trips to Eli House. I had the privilege to break bread and eat breakfast with some pretty cool people. These men trek from as far as South America in the hope

Last Day - July 6, 2015

Today we got to pass out rice and beans to families on the other side of the canal. The other side of the canal doesn’t have electricity and the homes are very small. They are many empty lots and large parts of land that has old abandoned houses. So our team decided to separate into five groups so we can serve as, many families as we could. I was

Day 1 round-up

Our first day at Eli House was completely exhausting, but I am not sure that we would have asked for it to be any other way. We started the morning off with devotions, then enjoyed breakfast with the Eli House students. Anna (Eli House intern) along with a couple of us went and picked up some of the students from their homes. Those kids were so hap

We Have Arrived! Viva Mexico!

I am writing this blog post as we are on the road from Phoenix to Eli House. The rumor that the air conditioning was functioning in the Eli House bus was a bit of a stretch. Right now it is 12:30 AM Ohio time, 9:30 here in Arizona. It is a balmy 97 degrees. We are also passing a lot of ranches along the way, so you can imagine the aroma. Our trip t

Daily update 7/5/15

This morning we started off the day by going to the church here at Eli House. The service was so amazing, everyone there was just so full of joy! We were able to take communion with them and it was just really awesome to be able to come together as a family of Christ, even though half of us didn’t even speak the same language. The next thing we d
Third Day

Third Day

Today we focused on exemplifying acts of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Everywhere I looked today, I saw these qualities shining in the people around me. This was the last day of school for the Eli House kids, so we had a “fun day”. This involved many water balloons. We made an attemp

Day 5 part two

To start off the day, the team and I went to a local park to have breakfast with some homeless people in a park. Many of them have been trying to get across the US, Mexico border for the past few months and have given up everything in the process. It was an amazing experience to be able to eat with them and hear some of their crazy stories. I met o
Happy July 4th!

Happy July 4th!

So this morning we were able to go on another prayer walk. The experience was amazing and really eye opening to see how much poverty there is. It’s crazy to think about how little these people here have, yet how happy they are. They may not have all the things we have and think are necessary, like electricity, but the people I’ve met have some
Day 4 summary

Day 4 summary

Today was a very emotional day for me. It actually started last night for me while we were out eating at the Vulcan restaurant. I had a lot of things on my mind, and a lot of emotions and memories of things that I have struggled with in the past. All of a sudden I felt overwhelmed and felt panic coming on me and I had a panic attack while we were t
