For the past 3 episodes, I have had the privilege of sharing sharing stories about benevolent Americans working to build homes for the seriously poor in Puerto Penasco, or Rocky Point, Mexico. We have visited the construction sites to see all the volunteers hard at work. Through two U.S.-based organizations (i6Eight and Families Helping Families Mexico) hundreds of people ranging from young kids to grandparents have built dozens of homes. The volunteers certainly do it for selfless reasons; helping to break the cycle of poverty for so many families. But the truth is, they get something pretty special out of it too, not least of which is the chance to bear witness as a family receives one of the greatest gifts of their lives.
In this, the final installment of this 4-part series, we get to watch that magical moment when a wonderful family gets a house of their own (thanks, in large part, to the excellent photography of Jonathan Cracroft)!
Up next, summer vacation for my family and some very exciting new opportunities for New Mexicast! Stay tuned for more information very soon!
Lots of Love,
