We started off our first full day in Uruguay by building our houses. I had an idea of what we are going into, but I never anticipated what I saw today. The children in this neighborhood were amazing. They were so happy to see us and it didn’t really seem to matter to them that many of us couldn’t speak Spanish. Even after this first day, I want to come back to mentor kids like this. These kids need role models and mentors, and its amazing how much we can affect them even though we don’t even speak the same language. I can’t wait to go back tomorrow and spend time with them and helping to welcome many of them into their new homes.
