Carlie left Saturday June 7th to go to Mexico with her school Liahona. The trip is a total of 8 days. She will spend 4 full days giving service at two orphanages, one in Cancun, one in Merida and a Salvation Army Food Pantry. She will be re-roofing and tiling walls, as well as other fix-up chores.
The School has some Dentist and Doctors, going and offering free dental and medical care while they are at the orphanges.
This trip is not all work though, as they will visit Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza with an LDS guide and swim in the ceynote at Ik Kil . They will also go to a Sacrament Meeting in Cancun.
We will all miss Carlie! She is going to get some of her Personal Progress done while there! YEAH!!
