The work crew from Mexico and Washington State pose on the concrete slab which will soon become the base for the new home. (I'm the guy holding the camera.) The volunteers in this picture have done a number of these projects so they are able to complete one in an amazing time. The completed home has 3 rooms, loft, roofing, siding, windows, sheet rock, tape, mud, exterior paint and electrical. Plumbing is not a factor as there is no running water in this neighborhood.
Pictured above is Maria who is a leader in the local church and has pitched in to help build previous homes in the neighborhood. When it was learned that Maria was going to lose her home it was decided that she would be the recipient of the home we came to build.
Exterior components are painted on the ground eleminating the need to paint the completed structure.The framing goes up quickly.
- Jesus loves me still today,
- Walking with me on my way,
- Wanting as a friend to give
- Light and love to all who live.
