I do not even know how to begin telling my story, this was the first time that I had ever been on a mission trip of any kind. It has taken me a couple of months to even begin to be able to express how deeply this trip impacted me. It was rough being away from my wife and children (ages 7,4, 11/2) for a week, but when I realized what we were doing and all of the people we were helping, it was worth it, I got to use my Spanish quite a bit and was even able to improve it. All of this was in the context of having the privilege to help out in bringing some aid to some people, who desperately needed it. I saw and experienced things that I never could have imagined. Going on this trip will change you life forever, and make you realize what it means to help the least of these.
