Details: Last year we built one house for Pedro and Alicia. We used wood from Elena's house. We had to tear it down, because someone started a fire and it significantly damaged the interior. the studs and most of the rafters survived so we used them. Pedro was thrilled to have the house and didn't care about the used lumber.

State Department travel advisory for Baja Peninsula (10/5/22): (look for Baja California State) 
Baja California state – Reconsider Travel 
Reconsider travel due to crime and kidnapping. 
Transnational criminal organizations compete in the border area to establish narco-trafficking and human smuggling routes. Violent crime and gang activity are common. Travelers should remain on main highways and avoid remote locations. (We do not go to this area.) Of particular concern is the high number of homicides in the non-tourist areas of Tijuana. Most homicides appeared to be targeted; however, criminal organization assassinations and territorial disputes can result in bystanders being injured or killed. U.S. citizens and LPRs have been victims of kidnapping. 
U.S. government employees must adhere to the noted restrictions: 
(We do not travel to or through these areas
Mexicali Valley: U.S. government employees should avoid the Mexicali Valley due to the heightened possibility of violence between rival cartel factions. The boundaries of the restricted area are: to the east, the Baja California/Arizona and Baja California/Sonora borders; to the south, from La Ventana (on Highway 5) due east to the Colorado River; to the west, Highway 5; and to the north, Boulevard Lazaro Cardenas/Highway 92/Highway 1 to Carretera Aeropuerto, from the intersection of Highway 1 and Carretera Aeropuerto due north to the Baja California/California border, and from that point eastward along the Baja California/California border. 
Travelers may use Highways 2 and 2D to transit between Mexicali, Los Algodones, and San Luis Rio Colorado during daylight hours. Travelers may also use Highways 1 and 8 to transit to and from the Mexicali Airport during daylight hours. Travel on Highway 5 is permissible during daylight hours. 
There are no other travel restrictions for U.S. government employees in Baja California state. These include high-traffic tourism areas of border and coastal communities, such as Tijuana, Ensenada, and Rosarito.
Includes documents, support letter information, shopping list, general information about the Tecate Mission trip and a prayer list.
