Today was spent finishing up the house. What a long and rewarding day! The team completed all of the finishing touches, gave the father his lock & key and prayed over the new home. 
Here's a beautiful note from Lisa Feldsein:
"My heart overflows!
In addition to clothing, feeding and housing a family of six. Which is entirely an amazing feat here!

We gained a new sister in Christ! God used common sinners forgiven through grace to share with Maria. God used the example of people spending time to build a house for others we do not know and a gift of beans, rice, prayer and a bible to touch her heart!  While talking we also shared John 3:16, Romans 3:23 and 6:23 as well as 1 John 1:9.  After talking about having a relationship with Christ, she said she wanted to do that!  
Lillie, our translator,
Assisted us with sharing. Such a blessing! 
Of course working with the family was awesome too!  
Watching their faces as they removed their shoes before entering their new house!  Seeing the furniture. The food. The new sheets!  Pillows.  A rocking chair. Plastic chairs for sitting in. Table and benches to eat at as a family!!
We are sitting in the dry after a big bowl of Judy's famous Tortilla Soup (Originally Susan Ackerman's). Thanks Judy and John for a great week! Praying God continues to bless your ministry as you serve!  Tonight the family is in a dry house with a floor. They had food to eat. They also know that God loves them!
Such a blessed trip!"
