Our Baja mission needs your help!
June 08, 2016

In a little over a month, our team will be leaving for Baja Mexico to build houses.  This means about 1000 nails per house!   Can you please See More

THE STORY:

It was just a shanty, a crude shelter cobbled together out of cardboard and plastic. There was no electricity, no running water, and no indoor plumbing, but it was all Luisa and her family had. This single mother of 5 children and 2 grandchildren was an Oaxacan indian, among the poorest of the poor in Vicente Guerrero, Mexico. But when the volunteer team from the Shenandoah Presbytery in Virginia arrived to build her a real house, her hopes and dreams came true! Since 2000, teams from the Shenandoah have built 52 houses and 2 schools in Baja, Mexico and this year we hope to build 4 more houses. Every nail, every 2x4, every window is paid for through donations, and either purchased on site or hauled in from San Diego. You can help us by "buying" a nail for $1.00 apiece, or a bucket of nails for $100.00. All donations go to the Baja mission fund to built houses for these desperate families in need.
