Are you open to experiencing friendships that transcend borders? Join us for a weekend as our friends invite us with open hearts and arms into their lives in the impoverished neighborhood of El Florido in Tijuana, Mexico. Together we not only build homes but also share our lives. We grow in understanding of each other's realities as we put up drywall on the new home of the Carvajal Ortega family, share meals with the community, visit a homeless shelter for migrants, and learn about border issues.
