MOUNT PLEASANT, Ind. (AP) - Members of an Indiana church have traveled to Juarez to build a new home for a Mexican family.
Residents of the area are used to living in shanties made of plywoods or crates with blankets for doors.
But the Daily Journal reports about 15 members of the Mount Pleasant Christian Church recently worked through three 100-degree days to build a new two-room house for a Juarez couple and their two children.
The church and its relationship with the Juarez area dates to the 1990s when high school students in the church's youth group teamed with a housing ministry in El Paso, Texas, to construct a house for a local family.
They started going back year after year.
