Home….a floor, roof, blankets….warm and dry

We met this family three years ago….a team was here and one of the team members fell “in love” with Caty….the two of them carried on a conversation, she in Spanish and he in English…neither understand the other but there was some kind of bond….since them we have visited them and tried to think of how could we get them out of the place they were living…then someone told us about a house that was for rent….we prayed and God again answered….this was the place for Pilar and her family…..

Pilar makes tortillas 7 days a week and sells them outside of a local

restaurant….it is hard work as she does not always sell everything that

she has made….

…Thank you to those of you who financially supported this project….

8 bath towels, 12 piece place setting of dishes and cutlery, pots and pans,

7 blankets, 7 sets of sheets

and pillow cases, table, chairs, shelves, 2 sets of bunk beds

and a single bed and food.

Bless you!

Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
