The Home for Home Program
Chad and Jamie Youngquist along with Chad's parents Jon and JoAnn Youngquist own Pillar Development Company which specializes in building modest starter homes in Ellensburg Washington. For each home Pillar Development builds in the USA they are committed to building a small home for an underprivileged family in a developing country. This project is known as the Home for Home Program and consists of the Youngquist family and their many friends from around the world.
Baja Christian Ministries (BCM) serves the spiritual and physical needs of the poor through engaging short-term mission teams in Mexico. For Churches and organizations throughout the United States, Mexico and worldwide, this Ministry provides opportunity for active, first-hand service in the third world environment.
This blog documents a Home for Home build and evangelistic event which took place in Tijuana Mexico in November 2010. The Youngquists graciously invited me to join their group for the weekend which turned out to be one of the most educational, emotional and rewarding experiences in my life.
The site location was in this Tijuana neighborhood
The neighbors look on while conctruction gets under way.
A previous building project was the construction of this humble church replacing the old one which was falling apart.
