Homes for the Homeless

Help us build two "Homes of Hope" for two homeless families near Tijuana, Mexico. Our team does the building in a weekend, but the family that gets a house has been in a process of application and preparing the site for months. This is one of those Jesus style actions that impact those who build the house as much as those who get the house. We donate our time and personal costs but need to raise $11,000 for the building materials.

To reduce a bit of pain and injustice in this broken world and follow in Jesus steps of helping others....A small family selected through the Youth with a Mission (YWAM) long-term developoment program to help really disadvantaged families get out of the dirt and into housing.

We go July 17-20 this summer just south of the boarder to build 2 homes...the 16' by 20' slab is there the first day and we are greeted by a small family that hasn't slept much because they are so excited. The team builds and raises the walls, some trusses and by the end of the first day the shell is done. The family typically helps with the building.

The second day the interior gets some dry wall, paint and trim goes on the outside. A few furnatures are brought in while the family is taken on a shopping trip for staples. Then the hardest and best part makes even the hardest hearted have a tear fall. the time to turn over the keys. Each one gets to share a blessing for the family and the family tells their story, and we all just thank God.
