I’ve always been proud of my independence. I feel as though I can go anywhere by myself – a movie, a restaurant, another country – and be just fine.
I still relish the time in high school when I traveled to London with a school group proceeded to purchase a ticket to see an evening production of the musical, “Rent.” I traveled to and from the theater all by myself.
Growing up I figured I could do anything alone, and while I have proven to myself that I can tackle whatever comes along, I recently discovered it’s much more valuable to share the experience with others.
On Oct. 8, I joined 13 other women at the Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church parking lot. Even though it was early in the morning, the mood was jovial.
We clustered together and posed for photos. This group of women came with their bags packed to fulfill a mission; a mission that one person could not accomplish on her own. It would take all of us working together to get the job done.
This mission was to build a house in three days. The group, House of Hope, would make its fifth annual trip to Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, to construct a home for a family of three.
The project was coordinated through a nonprofit organization called Gateway Mission Training Center.
