Yolanda had waited for several long months in her rickety and unsafe house that could not even shelter her from the rain. As a blind widow, she needed a safe home to live in – one that was secure and structurally sound. Little did Yolanda know that God would use her new home to bring hope not only to her, but to two other families in Acuña, México as well.
During the construction of Yolanda’s home, her extended family showed the team great hospitality by cooking them breakfast and lunch on the build site each day. Robert Johnson, one of the interns, said, “building for Yolanda was such a blessing. She was very soft-spoken but had the Lord on her side. Her smile and presence brought us so much energy. She sat out while we built and just smiled at the sound of her house being built.”
In the midst of an unusually challenging summer, God is still working in amazing ways through the staff and teams that have built in locations like Acuña. We at Casas por Cristo are so blessed and encouraged by the five baptisms that He orchestrated last week on a little work site in Mexico. Thanks to the generous support of our Hope Restored donors, homes are still being built in Latin America, and lives like Johan’s are being changed as a result.
