Home Sweet Home

We began this morning by making our way back to the community where we were building the house. Today we were bringing in the furniture and doing all the finishing touches on the house. 
After we completed the house, it was time to present the house to the family. It was amazing to see how the mother’s face lit up as she received the keys to her new house. All her kids went in and excitedly examined their new beds and dinner table. The whole family was overwhelmed and grateful for what God had just provided them. 
Next, we headed up to the community’s common area to prepare to feed the community. Not only did we get to provide them with beans, rice, and a Bible, but we also got to have a fiesta with the children. We had a piƱata and cake and balloons for all the kids. We even got to celebrate Jacob’s birthday a day early!
It was such a blessing to be able to pour out God’s love onto these families. Please continue to pray that God will shine through us during the rest of our trip!
