"You've made our dream come true!" was the response of the family during the dedication of the first of three homes to be built here in January. The Figueroa Vazquez Family of 11 in Santa Fe were extremely excited to be the recipients of a Cofradia Dwellings home. For many years, family who come to church have been praying for the mother of this family who is their sister. Just recently, through the prayers of family members, God moved the hearts of a family from Ridgeway, Colorado to come down and build a home for them. It was an incredibly touching time as the family received the home with tears in their eyes and repeating that phrase over and over, "You've made our dream come true!" To the glory of God!
The Colorado family raised enough money to build a septic for a bathroom, an above ground water tank, water hook-up, electrical hook-up, beds and bedding, and other furniture. What a huge blessing!
