Tuesday, Begining to build

This morning the team traveled for about an hour and a half to a remote village in El Salvador to begin building a new home for a father and his five children, desperately in need. 
They were humbled by the circumstances they found the family living in, and were honored to begin laying the foundation work for the new home. By the end of the day, the house was coming together nicely and they're looking forward to finishing it up tomorrow! 
Here's a note from Kenny Vaughn:
Another awesome day serving Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, here in El Salvador!  The team worked extremely hard putting in the blocks for the foundation for a new home for a father and his 5 children.  The father and older children work hard but make only around 50 USD per month, so they have many needs. It is truly a blessing to be able to meet their need for housing, some clothing and some  housewares.  To be able to love on this family and share Christ with them brings John 13:34-35,to mind, ""A new command I give you: Love one another as I have loved you.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."  It is my prayer that by loving this family they will know we are Jesus' disciples and that He loves them with a love that is not just temporal, like the house we are building, but with a love that is immeasurable and leads to everlasting life!  Thank you Father for allowing us this opportunity to serve you and spread your love."
