Barrhead Community Group - August 2018 | Hungry For Life

August 2018: ,

This group from Barrhead, Alberta traveled to Ensenada, Mexico to work alongside the ministry of El Refugio. During their time, they built relationships with the girls that have come to call El Refugio home. Together with our partners, they were involved in children's ministry, some vehicle maintenance and outreach to the community.

Team Testimonials:

"This trip impacted me in many ways—one big one being my relationship with God. It made me see what life with and without God looked like and I never want to lose that."
"One highlight of the trip was seeing our young people work together for a common goal and interacting/engaging with the people we had come to serve."
"This trip has made me realize that often times we put ourselves and others in boxes, only allowing them to do the things we think they are good at. When, if we would allow them to spread their wings, maybe they could soar."
"It broke my heart seeing the girls at the House of Refuge—how people they trusted hurt them.
"God spoke to me to want to help people in need."
"This trip made me want to participate more in my community working for God."

Multiple Perspectives


[Yesterday] we worked on priming the walls and putting insulation up in [the new buidling] in the compound.

Most of the girls went to school today so we didn’t spend much time with them. I’m going to buy hot sauce when I get the chance!
