In February, a team of ten from ICF traveled to Mexico to assist with the construction of a church. Three years ago, a few of the team members were a part of a previous team that broke ground on the site, which was initially a farmer’s field just outside of town.

These guys randomly jumped in the back of our truck. So naturally, they were subject to our constant photography.

We kinda got locked out...

Excitement, much?

Lenny. The mule.

Man shades of excitement.

The piles grows.

Mixing & loading cemento.

Quick break.

Ed, the leader. (because he dons the apple hat)

This job takes a lot of water.

Last day of cement? Maybe?

Another break.

Prepping the steel for painting.

Painting.

Zach has a slight obsession with VW's...

"Yeah! It's almost done!"

"There it is."

Looking all cool. And stuff.

The finished product.

Waiting for some good food!

We ate a few variations of this. So good.

Limes. A very popular side dish!

Pork rinds.

American food? (it was better than we can make it...)

These. Were. So. Good.

Cantaloupe & other melons for dessert!

Apple soda. Everywhere.

Evil peppers.

The last supper.

Evening dinner conversation.

Heading out to swim!

They didn't believe this was a waterproof camera...

6 people in the back seat? No big deal.

Caught in the act.

Everywhere you turned was a "Kodak moment"

One of the congregations gave us a sombrero.
