My story on how I wound up in Mexico


I am truly a man on a mission. It all got started by trying to help the people after Hurricane Katrina. I had just gotten back to Santa Cruz from New Orleans, all ready to go back to my landscape work. I was working, minding my own business, and I got a phone call from a couple who wanted me to help them move.
I didn’t know it was going to be to Mexico. After talking with them, I said YES. They were building a house in San Juanico on the Baja side near Cabo San Lucas. First, there was a ton of paper work to be done. It took me two weeks to prepare. We put it all together and finally loaded the truck and trailer with their building materials.
After loading up, we had room left and so I decided to take 600 pounds of kids’ clothes, shoes, rice, soap and beans. These were things I had left over from my Louisiana trip. I was able to meet some people who really needed these items and I gave it all to them with no strings attached.
My experience in Mexico opened my eyes to see how much poverty exists in the world. I know I can’t save the world but I do know I have a desire and a purpose to do what’s in front of me.
When I got back to the USA, I saw even more people, young and old, that were down and out. I saw these people and I started tearing up. I didn’t know what was going on with me. All I could think about was how I could help them. This went on all the way back to Santa Cruz. I began to pay attention to these feelings and began to pray, asking God, “What is your will for me?”
Ever since then, I have been acting on the constructive thoughts that come to my mind after I pray. You can call me crazy, but when God gives me instructions, I’m learning to just do it. I am walking in faith. I cannot do it alone. I need your help to help them. Help me help them.
