Team Testimonials:

“God put an on-going fire in my heart the whole time and I was in a state of compassion like never before.”
“My heart now bleeds for the poor.”
“We had the opportunity to build a house for a family who had been kicked out by their family because they were Christians. It really impacted me how they stood firm in their faith even though they knew they had nothing.”
“I was so touched when the children put on a presentation for us to thank us.”
“[This trip] reminds me how we in Canada are an island of prosperity in a sea of despair and I’m thankful that God allows me to help the poor on His behalf.”
“I especially noted that the ‘harvest field’ is big—the world is indeed large and many need to experience God.”
“The presentation by the students at the school in Membrillal broke my heart. How they clung to me at the end, each wanted to be in my arms.”
“[This trip] made me appreciate and realize that we are extremely blessed with all our resources.”

All Debts Are Paid

What a day! It was a very early start to our long, wonderful day. We had an uneventful ride down into Zapote. And when I say down, I mean down. Where we stay in San Lucas we are 7000m above sea level. Zapote is 500 feet above sea level.
