Reimer Family // Ensenada, Mexico
We want to say a HUGE thank you to every one of you that donated and supported the House Build in Ensenada, Mexico!
We, along with 24 others from our church in Oak Bluff, had the privilege of building a house for a young family and their 4 children. The family, including the children, worked together with our church team and 2 Mexican foremen to construct a 28 x 16 home in 3.5 days. The house has 4 bedrooms and an eating and visiting area in the center. It is an extremely modest home by North American standards, with no running water and a bare concrete floor, but it provides shelter and safety with a door they can lock. We raised enough money to fully furnish the house – beds, linens, table and stove, and the family was thrilled. The children particularly loved the bunkbeds. It was very emotional to hear their shrieks of joy when they entered their bedrooms.
This is an experience that none of us will ever forget!
