Kids of Mexico

Kids of Mexico, originally uploaded by Joshua Gunther.

I went on a mission trip to mexico this last weekend where we built a house for a family who needed a place to live. They asked me to be the photographer for the trip so I spent a lot of my time trying to capture moments that best describe our experience. This is one shot that I'm particularly proud of. Its of one of the many kids that were hanging out with us while we built the house. These kids are such precious souls and I can't believe some of the conditions they grow up in. It totally makes you realize how blessed you are! When we finished the really small house a family with 8 kids was about to move into something that was not much bigger then my one bedroom apartment. Crazy, but they were just so thankful to have a ruff over their heads!
