Mission Trips Are Awesome

A few years ago I was lucky enough to be part of a church mission team that traveled from our homes in Alabama to Alajuela Costa Rica. Well we were actually quite a way from the main city of Alajuela on a farm in a very rural area. While we were there we painted a house, built 40+ shelving units for the new dorm (no pre-built stuff – all from scratch) and provided almost two weeks of free labor in what ever needed to be done. The people were awesome and I know I’ve grown a lot from having experienced helping those that need help.
