Bright and early on Saturday August 27 2011, at 1 a.m. to be exact, a group of amazing people from Bakersfield embarked on a long journey to Tecate Mexico (precisley 6 hours!!) These people were heading to the House of Mercy Pro-life in Tecate to lay concrete out for a much needed drive way. Graciela Trujillo and her husband Nazario Limon worked diligently in their local parish (Our Lady of Guadalupe, Bakersfield), and local area to gather funds and volunteers for this project. With their work and their generous supporters they raised enough money to have five concrete trucks pour concrete! At 7 a.m. sharp the 15+ volunteers that congregated that morning began to work immediatley. They leveled the ground, laid the rebar, and shoveled the concrete that flowed from the trucks.
These men worked very hard, and completed a large area of the driveway by noon! It was an incredible sight to see. The names of the Bakersfield volunteers include:
Graciela Trujillo and Nazario Limon,
