Love Guatemala was looking for a widow, or single mom that we could build a house for when the Canadian team arrived…when we visited the home of a new sponsor student, we just knew that this is where God wanted us to build a house.

The sunlight coming in from the roof means that some or a lot of the lamina on the roof was missing…which also meant that the dirt floor became a river when it rained.

Wayne does enjoy construction so he will have his days of joy!

What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.

Saint Augustine
