2 - How my heart grew for missions

 How my heart grew for missions

My first year of high school I went on a mission trip to Mexicali with my local church.  We went through Azusa Pacific University for a week to do VBS for the kids.  Then I went to Ensenada with Horizon Community Church in Galt where we worked alongside Real Life Ministry missionaries Denis and Debbie Hollenbeck.  The purpose of each trip was to build one to two homes for families in need in the mornings, and put on Vacation Bible Schools in the afternoons for the kids.   These trips were life changing events in my life.  Each year as I returned my heart grew more and more for Mexico.
 

This was a family that we built a home for. 
 
The kids that I met, such as Bricelli, have always held a special place in my heart.
 
 I grew to love the culture.
 
 
 
 
 The little girl on my back is named Monica too!  Each year was a joyful experience.
