House in San Jacinto

Welp...we finally finished the house in one of the villages close by. We have been in construction for a little over two weeks. This is the house and family that
we met last year in Nov. and felt lead to build them a new house after their house was in danger of falling after the raining season left. Josh and Jessica Byrd came to serve in Guatemala this past Feb. and the Lord opened the door through their ministry to pay for the house. Josh and I worked with three other pastors who are our friends on this project. We also had help from a few other men that lived close to the house. Julio is the man who we are building the house for and he helped also. I got to say, I had no idea how exhausted I would be from working on the house. And I know Brandi has been working just as hard at home with the three kids. But praise God He accomplished His purpose and will for this family. It has been the hottest this year the two weeks we take
to build the house. The temperature has always been right at or over 100 F. Rough stuff, and we came out of it with a couple of bruises and cuts, just Josh and me. The other guys are just fine! But we are still walking and breathing Praise the Lord. They would say that we are accident prone and would laugh all the time. One time after I fell backing out of the house where all the material was stored and Julio's mom started laughing I picked up a block and broke it over her head!! Just joking. But I am thankful that God watched over us while we provided them with entertainment. I don't reckon we are use to walking and building a house on the side of a mountain. It would have been nice to have a bulldozer to level everything out flat. Haha So I wanted to thank everyone for their prayers for this project. The house and all the other expenses came to be right under $2,000.00!  If any one is interested in sponsoring another family with a house there are plenty of folks who have no house at all and others like Julio who need help due to weather or just simply that the mud and sticks used to build the house are not holding anymore. I'm not the expert in construction but I know that God can do anything and we want to be ready when He leads and directs us, even in doing construction. So pray that the house doesn't fall and hurt anyone! Haha Just joking! Thank you and Praise God!!!
