The MLHS Mission Trip Team traveled to Ysleta Lutheran Mission in El Paso December 26, 2022, and with the mission as their home base, drove across the border to Anapra, Mexico to build homes for two families there. In addition to building houses, team members also built relationships and shared the love of Jesus.
As of January 4, the team had successfully completed two small houses consisting of a concrete slab, insulated wood-frame walls, drywall interior, electrical lights and outlets, and a metal roof. The families for whom the homes are being built pick the exterior paint colors and help with the painting if they can. Although these houses are small by our standards, they are a welcomed improvement to the living facilities for these families.
The MLHS Mission Trip Team boarded their bus on January 5 for the return trip to Minnesota, and will be back on January 6, tired, but grateful for the opportunity to serve others. In a January 4 post on Facebook, Ysleta Lutheran Mission Servant Events said “Houses are done! Mayer Lutheran High School has successfully completed their 18th year mission of building – not just houses, but friendships, communities, character and faith.”
To God all praise and glory!
