As a group, we assembled two loft houses (10x10 homes with a small loft for sleeping) for two families. We also went to a local church and helped paint and pass out flyers for a movie night they were hosting for the locals. It was so good for our kids to see how other people live. It was also neat to see the end result, which was a small ceremony presenting the lofthouse keys to the family.
The kids did awesome, considering the many hours spent in the car, the long days on the job site, and just adjusting to being in another country. Chris and I also really enjoyed getting to know others in our church that we see each Sunday, but don't necessarily know.
Here are some pics:
Playing jump-rope with the kids at the local church. Umm...that's exhausting!
The kids had a BLAST swimming with all the other kids from our church.

We ate at the same taco stand all three nights. It was delicious! My dad joined us on the trip as well, which was really fun.
