We are so blessed! GOD continues to connect us always with the right people so we can do what HE has already put in our hearts to do.
Have a look at a few of the projects we are working on now. We appreciate help in every way.
A Plastic Bottle House for Marveliz
We met Marveliz after the 2017 flood. Pregnant and without the father of her 3 kids, she had no home, and was destitute. She asked for a new home. We didn't have money but GOD had already shown us in our hearts that we would be building homes out of plastic bottles!
We asked her to collect 2500 plastic bottles and fill them with river sand, and we promised we will find a way to build her a home. We made similar offers to other families in need of a home, but Marveliz was the only one who really did the required initial work. After a few months she appeared at our gate and informed us she had the bottles. OKAY!
We had a few things fall through, but GOD introduced us to this awesome guy named Khalil, and his Swiss-based company BUYS FOOD WITH PLASTIC. First to get the plastic bottles from their events and later they gave us the whole donation to build this house. Thank you guys, you are so amazing. To believe in a plastic-free future really impressed us.
Watch below how awesome this house turned out. Very soon it will be ready for Marveliz, Jovania, Ethan, Estefanie and James Joseph to move in and start a totally modern new life. Oh, and yes the whole family have given their lives to Jesus and are now walking by faith. Praise GOD!
THE WAY CRAFT - MACRAMÉS
This is a Christ centered project to educate and create much-needed work for local women.
The 2018 crisis in Nicaragua dramatically increased unemployment from 4.4% to 24%. This project provides real hope and courage to local women. Being creative and productive is a blessing to their self-esteem while benefiting their entire families. For these women, earning money and supporting their families gives them dignity and makes them proud.
