Sell a Home, Save a child: Members on mission in Oaxaca

Sell a Home, Save a Child (SAHSAC) Member Troy Daniels, accompanied by his business partner Veronica, joined us on a mission trip to our Mexico children’s program, Trigo y Miel and the Siloé school, to witness the direct impact of his contributions. In our interview, he shared his experience, his commitment to SAHSAC, and offered valuable insights for other members considering going on a mission trip. 

Why I went on the trip: 

I have been wanting to go on one of these mission trips for several years now but there always seemed to be a schedule conflict with work or previously planned trips. The stars finally aligned for me to have this week available and I jumped at the chance. I really love helping others and I believe in giving back to the community. God has truly blessed me in so many ways and with that success I feel a strong sense of responsibility to share God’s grace with others.  

How this trip made me feel about my involvement with Sell a Home, Save a Child: 

It is so amazing to finally see first-hand how God’s grace is spreading through this program. Words and videos cannot describe the feeling I had all week. To see the amazing school curriculum, the amount of physical activities, the nutritious meals, the clean drinking water and the safe and loving environment being provided to these children is overwhelming. However, nothing is as heartwarming as seeing and feeling the pure joy on these children’s faces each and every day.

What was different or more than what I expected: 

I literally went on his trip with zero expectations and a servants mindset. My attitude was to arrive on day one and ask them how I could help. Having said that, the entire week exceeded any possible expectation that I could have dreamed of ahead of time, had I allowed myself the time to think about it. 

My favorite thing/activity from the week: 

My favorite activities were spending time with the children. Whether we were teaching them in the classroom, attending church services, participating with them at recess, or just getting to know them during meals, being around these amazing children was extremely uplifting for me.

A moment that you will never forget? 

I will never forget the amount of love I witnessed from everyone I encountered at Trigo y Miel all week. This obviously starts with Pastor Victor and his wife Lety setting the example for the entire program, but continues throughout the entire organization, including the staff, the teachers and the students themselves. I witnessed God’s love and joy through every single person I came in contact with during this entire week.

What I want to do on the next trip: 

I want to be even more involved. I am making it a priority to become more fluent in Spanish so it will be easier for me to communicate with everyone there. I would also love to be able to provide the students with life-coaching classes, if the curriculum has space for this and the leadership allows it.

What I would say to another Sell A Home, Save A Child Member considering going on a trip: 

What are you waiting for? Do not hesitate to say yes and jump at the your first chance to go on one of these mission trips. It is truly a life-changing and highly rewarding experience to witness God’s work first-hand.
