This trip was my first time to go to Eastern Europe. I had the chance to see the other side of Europe. The average life level (quality of life, [QOL]) of the people who are living there is kind of unsatisfactory. Our mission there was to help one of the families to build a house so that their children can grow up and live in a better way.

This mission trip is really my first time to help people who are in need in other countries. This always reminds me that there are more people who need help in the region where I live. For the BFA students, we also have a chance to show our Christian spirit to others, like the construction workers, our German friends and teachers, and each other. I hope more families who are in need of a house can benefit from the help of Habitat for Humanity and other organizations. May God bless you all.
