On November 2, a family from our Cofradia Christian Center, Chano and Victoria, received a brand new home thanks to an anonymous donation and a week of hard work by the local church.
|Chano and Victoria|
This was the sixth house that has been built for needy families here in Cofradía through a ministry called Dwellings. We are all excited for this well-deserving couple that have struggled financially for a very long time and just have not had enough to build. Chano and Victoria were one of the 13 couples who were married on Valentine's Day 2010 in our HUGE wedding ceremony for those who had never had the opportunity to officially get married in the church. They have three daughters, and one grandchild. They have been living in a house/shack for a long time and for the lack of work and finances, have been unable to arrange their home to be livable throughout the year. They've had to leave their home and stay with someone else a number of times during the rainy season as water would come through the cracks in their roof.
It was a blessing to be able to bless a needy family in this way. Here are some pictures of how things progressed.

|After the floor was poured, Pastor Gollo took a moment to pray with Chano and Victoria.|
|It's taking form as the walls are getting stuccoed.|
|Pastor Luis, the one in charge of the build, is finishing up with some of the last touches before handing over the keys.|
|After we prayed for them and dedicated the house, they were about to officially open the doors for the first time.|
