2008 TIJUANA HOUSE BUILDING PHOTOS:
Our church took about 350 people to Tijuana on Memorial Day weekend to build houses. This year we completed 22 houses. The trip was organized through Amor Ministries who have been building houses in Mexico for decades. Our house was for Francisca and her family. Francisca was living in a shack, with a dirt floor, made from garage doors imported from the US. The house we built has a cement slab and two 11 x 11 foot rooms.

The campsite we stay at belongs to Amor Ministries. This year there were over 1,000 people in the camp. Below is a panorama shot showing the tent city and surrounding hills.
If you have Google Earth on your computer, here are the placemarks for the campsite and the build site.
