While most may see Easter Break as a time to relax and unwind, Shelby B. '20 took a completely different approach and spent a week in Mexico building houses for the poor with Amor Ministries and CPC Church. This is Shelby's second Mission Trip, where she says she "finds grace, humbleness and gratefulness." In just six days they build houses from the ground up with no electricity, no water, no power tools, just good old fashion hard work and lots of love and dedication to the families they get to know and bond with during their stay. Shelby's favorite parts are playing and talking to the kids and "The Key & Bible Ceremony" at the end.
