October 2016 Trip
"This will change YOUR LIFE! This will not be another weekend that fades away and is forgotten...when you are at your Thanksgiving table at the end of this year and someone asks what you are thankful for you will remember this weekend..."
Your plan is to go there and transform lives. But it ends up being the other way around. Your life is the one that changes.
Watching my two teenage sons love on a community has been a priceless adventure. You think you're going to help change lives, in return it changes you.
We have built for a total of 15 families so far. These are just the stories of a few.
FAMILIA SEGÚN GIL
Ana and Cristian have 4 children, Brianna, Cristian, Eric, & Idies. They are an incredibly loving and joyful family. Since building their house they have joined us in helping build the homes for others.
FAMILIA JIMENES ARENAS
This family of 8 has a powerful testimony. The mother, Maria, fiercely prayed for a house for her family even though her husband said it would be impossible. Even after they were told we would be building them a house, her husband still didn't believe her. But a house has been built for them by the grace of God for His glory!
MARIA "PAZ" BARRENA
Paz is one of the most grateful people we have met. Every time we are down there she thanks us over and over for her house. She truly brings joy and gratitude to everyone she encounters.
After building a house for Marcelino and his family, he was so moved by the gift that he was driven to give the house to someone in the neighborhood whom he felt was in greater need. The woman he gave it to later became his wife.
