     Imagine all the people living in cars, trailers or no place at all. These people have families that they need to keep safe and healthy, and they need a safe home to help them. The people of Homes of Hope help build homes for families in Cambodia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, East Timor, El Salvador, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Tijuana, Nepal, Panama and Uganda. I got the amazing opportunity to go to Tijuana and help build a home for a family that had originally lived in a trailer on a hill. Me and the rest of the group stayed in a hotel in Tijuana and we took a bus to the site and worked there for two days. We had a builder, a translator, and a group leader, along with the families help paint and put together the house. Homes of Hope is also known as YWAM, which is short for international missions organization dedicated to the mobilization of waves of young people in spreading the gospel to every corner of the earth, or youth with a mission. Ruby Thomas was a part of one of the home builds for a family in need and she says that her favorite part was seeing the look on the families face when they walked through their new door to their brand new home. “It was truly amazing to see the children jumping on their brand new beds with wide smiles on their faces”, Ruby said. “They were so happy” she said, “and it made me so happy”. The trip was very long and rough but in the end it was so worth it. The joy and safety it brought them made me the happiest person in the world. This was an amazing experience and I hope to do it again. Everyone should help out with this, it is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. 🏠❤
