It all started when ... The church preschool where I teach started a community project to raise $5,500 to build a well with Living Water International. My boss asked at a staff meeting if anyone wanted to go and I said that I've always wanted to go on a mission trip. Next thing you know I was signed up.
I enjoyed getting to know ... The in-country Living Water staff were amazing. I loved the hygiene team - they were so helpful and fun. We also joined up with another church from another state and it was great getting to know many others who answered the call to serve.
Things that challenged and changed me ... Seeing how little others have and how we take for granted so many things in our busy lives. Everyone in the community was so content and happy to bless us by serving us lunch everyday and they just had so much joy that we were there.
I will never forget ... The people I met, the joy on the kids faces, and the laughter when we played and did crafts together.
