Overall, I did not get as much out of my trip as I expected, although this was not any fault of the trip leaders/organizers. I spent the majority of the trip sick, and was unable to get the experience I had hoped for. I did get to interact more with the church personnel than others, and they were more than supportive; at numerous points, the church staff came to check up on me and see how I was doing and if there was anything they could do for me, which was incredibly endearing to me. I could not have asked for more helpful people to be surrounded with, and my trip members all checked up on me when they could as well. The trip was enjoyable as a whole, but I wish I had been able to be more involved in the reconstruction efforts of the rest of the group.
