"Today we drove around a community looking for people who need a home and we saw a "house" that was just 3 tarps for walls, and 1 tarp for a roof. We went down to check it out and meet the family and we saw that there were 6 people in the family (mom, dad, 2 girls and 2 boys) living on a dirt floor with no walls and 2 mattresses. They just moved yesterday because they couldn't afford their rent. The dad is a musician (who is really good and sang a few songs for us) and used to be quite famous in his community until the cartel tried to extort thousands of dollars from him, threatening to take him or his daughters. They packed up everything that week and ran away. They are now going to a receive a new home in August!!" #praiseGod #HomesOfHope #ywamsdb #ywamsdm
Every month we also host an informational meeting for families interested in knowing more about receiving a home. This past month we had over 200 people come to the campus for this meeting. During the meeting they heard the Gospel, Worshipped our Savior, heard personal, transformational stories from some of our missionaries as well as the guidelines and requirements to receive a house from The Lord through YWAM San Diego/Baja and the teams that partner with us through Homes of Hope. Check out the video below to see just a few of the cars that were lined up along the drive on my way to the campus that morning. I have never seen that many.
If you can answer yes to either of these questions, please prayerfully consider coming down and building house for one of these families. For more information, check out our website www.ywamsdb.org. I would LOVE to experience this life-giving opportunity with you!
The need is great but God is greater!!
