When our group returns to Guatemala in summer 2015, one of the projects that we're passionate about is building homes for two families who are in need of homes. Mark and I had the pleasure of spending time with one of the families this past summer. Sylvia is a widow. Her husband was killed in a mining accicent. She and her two beautiful sons, Alex (10) and Anderson (6 now I think) have since lived in a small part of Sylvia's sister's home. Her sister's home is the size of my living room.

We are raising money to build a home for this family and another wonderful family. We need approximately $2000 for each home. The $4000 that we need will go toward all the materials and toward hiring local people to do the labour. We don't want to take jobs away from people who need them! We will help in any of the little ways that we can while we're there, painting, bringing food and water to the workers etc...but we'll leave the major work to the local professionals who need the work. I am so thankful for the home that I have and I know that these incredible families will feel the same about their new homes. Love builds so many possibilities! Please consider donating. Any money that we receive beyond the $4000 needed will go toward purchasing water filters for families that have no access to clean water. Each water filter costs $100 and will clean the water of a household for nearly 10 years! This is the other project that Mark and I are very passionate about!
