Building Houses in Juarez, Mexico 2 - July 7

(The SHOC - our home for the next four days)

After getting across the border we headed toward our home for the next four days, the SHOC. It is a concrete floor building that has showers and a place to take our siestas. While some slept on the concrete floor, others like me used an air mattress.

And yes, we all slept in the same room. Men on one side, and women on the other. We exercised "extreme" modesty which meant shorts to finger tips and tee-shirts for sleepwear. It never felt awkward at one time. This youth group is so mature. I would have never tried this with my first youth group.

Then is was off to the work site to get started on our house. Tye out.
