On this beautiful morning in El Salvador, our team prepared to build a home for a family a few hours away. The family consisted of grandparents and and a grandson/son.
As we prayed and prepared our hearts and minds for the day at hand, I was reminded of this verse.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice
is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Matthew 7:24 NIV
When we arrived we were greeted warmly.
The family had worked for quite some time to prepare for the day.
The team was introduced to the family and we prayed over the day and home and family. The family was very moved and grateful. Then it was work time! The foundation and walls went up quickly!
There were lots of smiles and laughter along with hard work.
It is amazing to see Gods blessings and provision in action!
We were even able to paint the house in the same day!
The family often came to watch with excitement and anticipation.
It was amazing to see the home come together so perfectly for them.
The grandson/son of the family was eager to help and be a part, as well as another older son of the family. It was a great day! Tomorrow the team will return to finish the house off with furniture and other necessities to make the house a home.
Thank you to everyone who helped this dream become a reality for this beautiful family!
