Construction….a Gift of Love

We were given two names of widows….

Sandra, a widow, needed a new bedroom as her daughter and her family have moved in.

Her daughter Ana’s husband was killed in an accident.

Sandra, widow who has her daughter, also a widow

and her 3 grandkids living with her….

There was quite a mess to clean up in the room where the guys

were going to build a bedroom…

…unloading the laminate…

and so the construction began….

…Jack is trying to find the right drill bit….

…Dave, Jack and Eric putting up the frame for the laminate…

…Diego, glad that you could work with us…

…the room just needs a door…

(there is a clear piece of laminate where it looks like a piece is missing in the roof)

…the construction crew that worked on the bedroom….

We had a dedication of the room and the family…

….Ana’s daughter became very attached to Jack….

she called him her father….

…meet Marita, she is raising her three granddaughters (12, 15, 16)

She was so excited that she was getting a house that she cleaned

off all the weeds and stuff off of her lot…

…she was very determined to help…

….how to secure your van for night!…

…Bob the Builder, eat your heart out…Kristen can dig circles around you!…

…Marita did not want anyone to steal anything from the house

so she slept in the van for 2 nights….

…always helping…

…thank you for my house….glory to God…

(we need to make some concrete steps and walkway to the

washroom and the pila (wash tub)

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 

“If I stop to help this man, what will happen
to me?”  But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: 

“If I do not stop to
help this man, what will happen to him?”  ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
