The Dunavant’s are home and survived the Do Unto Others Adventure 2015 to Mexico. As always it was an incredible blessing to our entire family. There is something about serving others that always leaves you more blessed than the family you served.
This year was a brand new adventure. On the second day, the region of Mexico we were serving in received more rain in one day than they have had since 1902. These families don’t deal with rain like this on a regular basis. Many of the members of the community could be seen sweeping the rain out of their homes and trying to keep their possessions as dry as possible (Not an easy task in a strong rain storm). It is times like this when you realize how much we take for granted in our day to day lives. I’ve never had to worry whether an afternoon rainstorm might ruin my food or leave my bedding and clothes unbearably wet for the evening.
When we finished on day 3, we were able to leave the family with a dry home that only needed an application of stucco to the outside. Fortunately, Amor sends groups down on a regular basis to finish homes that are not completed when the longer trips leave. We were able to work alongside the family to build them the home and it was an incredible experience to see their joy and gratitude.
We have tentatively set the dates of the 2016 Adventure for July 16 – 18. Put it on your calendar and consider bringing your whole family to join us. I promise you won’t regret it.
Blessings to you all,
Eric & Angel Dunavant
