Sunday Snapshot- That House in Haiti

Ni Hao Y'all



Several months ago I told you about a trip our church would be taking in October to build a home in Haiti.  Several of you contributed to that house by having portraits taken of your family.  We raised enough money to not only build a house, but a duplex for 2 families.  The men returned home last night and Dustin Bennett was nice enough to get the pictures out quickly.  Thanks Dustin for taking these. 
Here is the house!







This last picture is of the team and one of the families getting the home.  The first family is a couple with a toddler and 2 week old baby.  Can you imagine spending your pregnancy in a tent in Haiti?
The second family is a teenage girl who thought she lost everyone and then recently found her 2 younger siblings.  How cool is that?  You can see them on the video.  Both families helped build all week.

I am also posting the link to a video of more pictures. YWAM is designing an entire community with 84 homes placed on 7 cul-de-sacs with a school, commercial area, relief storage, a market, and a slaughter house.  All they need is money and volunteers.  If you want to read more or participate in this project with this incredible organization, you can go  HERE  or send me an email and I can get you to the right contacts.

Here is a link to that video.  So Amazing!

What an awesome ministry to be a part of--what a blessing it must be for the families to get homes, for the young girl to find her family. Wow. Definitely puts things into perspective for me right now.

Oh wow! How exciting when the blessings double over and a house becomes a duplex!
