Letter from the Family:

It would make my family and I very happy to qualify for the blessing of receiving a Homes of Hope house. We just were able to get land to live on. We saved little by little to be able to pay the down payment of the land. My husband doesn’t have a stable job but thanks be to God, he is a hard worker. Where we are living right now people are letting us borrow this space, but the house is on land that is considered "high risk." A small canyon passes through the middle of the property and the house is in front of a creek.

When it rains I have to leave the house, taking my kids with me which makes me very sad. Sometimes it’s the middle of the night when it happens. The canyon by the house is crossed by a bridge. I am always afraid that the rain will wash out the bridge and that my kids and I will be stuck inside the house without a way to escape.

It worries me because my children are young. The canyon is also very dangerous because people always throw their dirty, used water into it which attracts many mosquitos and mice. The room where we sleep has a very thin floor that the mice always make holes in and I am worried that when the mice come in, they will bite us and give my children some kind of illness.

We stay here because we have no where else to go and we don’t have money to buy walls and make something out of it. Thank you for letting us write to you about our current situation. Thank you for listening to us. And thank you to the YWAM team. May God bless you and take care of you always.
