MURDOCK, Kan. (KAKE) – A youth group from Indiana wrapped up a project Friday, building tiny homes for people seeking asylum legally at the U.S.-Mexico Border.

The Siloam Fellowship Mennonite Church group traveled to Camp Mennoscah in Murdock, Kansas for their annual mission trip. The group is originally from Goshen, Indiana.

This year, Siloam partnered with the Mennonite Disaster Service (MDS) to build three tiny homes. The group is made up of 11 young men, ages 16 to 25.

MDS said the youth are not all trained in carpentry and are taught as soon as they arrive. The group framed and fitted the 10-by-20 foot homes. The tiny homes include a shower, toilet and sink as well as wiring and plumbing for climate control and a small kitchen.

The tiny homes will ultimately be transported to San Antonio, Texas, for asylum seekers.

“They have documentation saying they will be appearing in court at a future date,” said MDS Regional Operations Coordinator Jeff Koller. “[They] need a place to stay temporarily.”

Siloam Fellowship youth said Friday that they were enjoying the process so far, but that it was strange building a home for someone they would never meet.

“This is what we’ve been doing all week,” said Siloam Youth Leader Cory Eash. “We’re building these houses, but we have no idea who’s going to be living in them.”

Koller said he understood how the group might be feeling but the impact of the work they are doing is far-reaching, and could help dozens of families working to enter the U.S. legally.

Regardless of whether or not the youth group gets to meet the families they are helping before they head home, they say they still hope they are about to make good use of them.

“Spend as much of the time that they need in it,” said Eash. “And I hope that they enjoy them.”
