I was dropping Christa off at her house a few weeks ago and she asked me if I wanted to see her horse. Of course I was more then game. I love animals. We walked by this amazing field of wild sunflowers and I got an idea. This session was a result of that idea.

Christa is a high school junior who can be super tough, but in the end she loves to laugh and joke around. Christa also has potential to be an amazing leader. I believe that this year is going to be a huge growing year for her. Christa’s horse, Suzy, is going to be sold this month and we wanted to get a few moments of them together. Let me just tell you that Suzy was very aware of the camera and she would stop chewing just so I could get a good picture. She was great. Christa wasn’t bad either. haha.

My cousins were in town from Minnesota and we always try to squeeze in some time to take pictures of the family. Unfortunately for them it was one of the hottest days in July and baby D was not having it. We had fun any ways exploring down town Riverside.

On June 26 our church took 14 High School students and 8 adults to Caravan Ministries in Tijuana, Mexico. Our team had been preparing for this since February. We were to go to Mexico and build a house a day for families in need. We thought that was all we were doing, but soon found out through speakers every night that they wanted us to know that we are all called to go and bring the lost (unsaved people/people who don’t know about Jesus Christ) back to God. It was life changing. I myself was challenged to use where I am to share and love on people around me daily. If I can’t do it here in America then how can I do it in another country.

Fresh tacos every night!

We threw Clayton a surprise birthday party while we were in Tijuana. We went to a local market and bought him a cake and put luchadors (Mexican wrestlers) all over it.

Our first build.

Every family that we build for provides lunch for our team and it is usually a weeks worth of wages. They were so generous.

Since the foundation of our build was still wet, we didn’t get finish the house. Our team was the first team back to where we were staying and the first team back has to do cut sheets.

Our second build.

Home made fish tacos!

Kids from the neighborhood.

We finished our first house and we were about to pray over the family then the neighborhood kids wanted to come in too.

Estell and her daughters are the owners of a new home.

On the third build we had an amazing family that served us coconut milk while we were building.

They had these two twin girls, Paloma and Aloma, that wanted to learn English and that were more than happy to help put the house together.

Tersea, our staff member for the day, was using a hammer to hit another hammer under a board. A shard of metal from the hammer went into her neck.

Daniel was our resident artist. He’s the little brother of Paloma and Aloma.

This awesome family gave us oranges with chile on them. So good.

On the fourth day we split-up our teams so we could go back to the house that wasn’t finished and put that house up. We called this team Special Operations.

Father and son. They were on separate teams until the last day.

The family.

Me and Sensei Courtney! Courtney taught me how to make shutters.

We got back early again so we decided to stop by an ice cream shop.

That same night we had a local woman make us authentic Mexican food. We were also given cantaloupe juice. Why don’t we drink this in the states?

My team, Fatty McDaddy/White Sabbath.

The whole team on the last day.

This trip wrecked me. I can’t go a day with out thinking of people who need God or when I will be able to go to another country to empower leaders and to share God’ s love. I’m so proud of my students and I know that they still trying to find a way to continue their growth from this trip.

I hope you enjoyed it!
