As time went on, they decided to buy the property on credit and stared little by little building a room out of wood. Felipe works in a factory doing different jobs, painting, welding, and has a salary of 3,500 pesos every 2 weeks. Felix and Felipe are grateful to God because they have their own property, but they have faith that He will also provide for a house.

Rocio and Sebastian met in Ensenada 7 years ago, and have been living together ever since. They lived with Rocio’s mom for the first 2 years and had their kids while living there, but they had to move out because was there was not enough space for everyone. So they decided to rent a bigger place, and after a year they decided to buy their own land. Rocio’s family helped them to buy the property and a year ago they moved on to live in their property. They live in a small room made out of pieces of wood; they don’t have enough money to build a house because they don’t have enough income. Rocio stays at home taking care of the kids.
