Over Valentine’s Day weekend Head Cheese Scot Dietz and 3BM employee Renee took a trip south of California to Tijuana to give back to the community.
Joining the Amor Ministries they helped build a new home for a family in need. It only took three days to complete this home for a mother and her three children.
Behind the Scenes: 3 Day Home Build
Scot Dietz participates in community service projects in Southern California each year.

Scot encourages all of his employees to engage in their community and to give back through whatever means they can contribute.

As read on the Amor website, “No logistics. Just you, your passport, personal belongings, and the experience of a life time. Come and see this trip with new eyes, without the burden of logistics and programming bogging you down. You will join with our pastors in service to their communities and learn the desires of the hearts around an evening campfire. You will also get to spend evenings with one of the Amor Founders as the share the history and vision of Amor.”
“Whether you are out in the communities working and sweating or under the stars back at camp, these trips will have you wanting to come back year after year.” – Amor Ministries
What is Amor Ministries?
Starting in 1980, Amor Ministries is a non-profit 501 (c)3 christian organization that’s sole purpose is to do outreach in the poorest areas of Mexico and South Africa.
“We invite you to Come. Build. Hope.”
Scot and Renee went with Amor on their Southern California routine 3 day trip to build a two bedroom house with a simple enough design that the volunteers don’t have to use any dangerous power tools to complete. Amor typically builds an 11’x22’, two-room home with a concrete floor, stucco-finished exterior, weather sealed roof, two windows, and a door.
La Cocina, the kitchen service run by Mexican pastors’ wives and their congregations, provides the team with meals for the weekend. They cook their own recipes and take care of meals, snacks, coffee, water, Gatorade, you name it. Tables and folding chairs are also provided.
