Introducing the MORE Project Expedition Blog

The MORE Project is so happy to bring you stories of our expeditioners from the field. February 28th through march 8th we had a group of 13 participants join the team in Brazil and serve on a construction project and with the kids at the brand new day care center. While they are down there doing so much good for others, don’t forget the wonderful change this kind of service brings to our own hearts. The MORE Project’s own Mindy Relyea lead the group and sent this note back to us on the second day.
“U would not believe our day! Sooo productive. Our construction guys built a two teired railing all around the never better for the toddlers…then covered it with mesh…we painted all the walls of the out door kitchen, put rock and gravel to create a new path on both sides of the property leading up to the house….hard long labor, but soo great! Louisa made a beautiful lunch that we ate outside with the workers and women of the crèche. Lina is beside herself she is so happy and the group is full of pride and new calluses! Then we weeded all the gardens, which is perfect because the soil is soft and wet…it’s been such a wonderful day… Sergio has been with us, so supportive and upbeat!”
