Cabo Mission Trip 2022
Build two homes in three days? It sounds impossible. Not for the volunteers of the 2022 Cabo Incentive Trip.
Over 125 funeral directors and owners, sales people, DIG employees, friends, and family members served two families in three big ways:
- Praying for these families whose lives were being changed and safety for the build team
- Bringing clothing, towels, utensils, and other home items to furnish the newly built homes
- Building the homes for these families in record time
This was the first incentive trip Patrick Walker, a DIG employee, and his wife had been on, and the build was, by far, their favorite part of the entire trip:
“The impact of building the two houses was one we will never forget,” he said. “We were glad we could be a part of changing a few people's lives.”
The families who received the homes were incredibly thankful and overwhelmed with gratitude. One family even began cooking a full meal for the volunteers (homemade beans and tortillas) and even got the neighbors involved to help and serve!
“This is my command: Love one another.” John 15:17
To all of those who helped through prayer or service, thank you for sharing your time and talents for these families. They have felt the love of Christ and will forever be changed for it.
“All five members of my family signed up for the mission day and it was very meaningful to meet the husband and wife who were receiving the new house. We were told a story that this family’s neighbors had told the recipient family the house would not be built, that nobody would show up and actually follow-through with their promises. I was proud to see my boys and wife working very hard on that day, and it allowed all of us to slow down for a moment and be reminded of how blessed we truly are!” - Nathan Kessler, Active Sales Manager for Funeral Directors Life
