Letter From the Family: 

I first heard of YWAM and Homes of Hope by a magazine I found. The magazine was talking about how a little girl went to her father when they were building for a family in need in Tijuana if they were going to build for the neighboors that were living in an abandon bus. I can't read or write so I had my oldest daughter read it out loud to me. When she was reading me the story I felt God tell me that I wasn't alone and that I could come to you for help.

My situation is like this, I am a single mother in need of a roof over my baby's heads. Like I said I felt like God sent me to you, I work very hard each day just to cover the basic needs of my kids. I love them so much and they are the reason that I don't loose hope and why I keep fighting. My parents were letting us live in there house for the time being while I got enough money saved up to make the first deposit and payment on my land. There were 17 of us living in a three bedroom house and there wasn't much room. I was asking God to provide some walls so that I could build a little house for me and my kids to stay in.

I was walking to work one day when I saw that there were some walls just laying in the middle of a giant sand pile and I knew that God had sent me them. I want you to know that the biggest desire of my heart has been to see my kids in a worthy home and I want you to know that we will value and take good care of the house just like you all would hope for. May God always poor out his blessings over you. We will be forever grateful for your support in giving us a better future. - Ana Isabel
