The home for the Giron family was our first build in the rural community of Juan Tomas. Victoria is mute and deaf but worked hard to give her grandchildren who live with her a safe place to live. Her primary role as caretaker is to do the housework while her grandsons work to support the home. Both teenage granddaughters attend school. The church noticed the conditions of extreme poverty facing this family, all living in a one bedroom home for 5 people with an outdoor kitchen and rotten wood throughout which is why they were chosen for a new home. Two teams (both from McLean Bible Church) had part in this home, one to help with the build, and the other to dedicate the structure to the Lord.
It is our hope that this home is a testament to the larger community that no one is beyond God’s merciful reach. We also pray that the grandchildren that live here will surrender their hearts to the Lord and never forget His faithfulness to them, telling future generations of His goodness and mighty works.
