Puebla mission update — June 11

Greetings from Ahuazotepec! We’ve been very blessed these days, weather has been great to work, it hasn’t rained and it hasn’t been very hot. We’re making steady progress on the house, it is fascinating how it is built, it looks like building a real life lego house.

Last night, Jorge, the young man who started this project in Mexico and who is acting as our foreman shared a very inspiring reflection with us. At Mass we sang the song “Fisher of men” in Spanish (You have come down to the seashore, not in search of the rich….) one of the lines says “mi cansancio que a otros descanse” (let my fatigue be a consolation for others), he made us see how our fatigue these days due to the hard labor and the rough living conditions is bearing fruit as a home for a family, who will be able to use it for at least 30 years… our fatigue is a consolation for these good people.

We are all discovering great lessons, and can’t wait to be back and share them all with you.

God bless!!

St. Tim’s Mission Team, June 2015
