Cardboard vs Cold Wind & Rain

The Gift of a New Home

The winter nights were cold for Juan and Alondra Flores and their two children living in the 10×10 home that they had pieced together with scrap wood and cardboard. Juan is employed at a factory nearby doing his best with his wife to raise a family and build a better future. Now, thanks to the servant event from Family of Christ Lutheran Church in Ham Lake, MN, they can do so in the warmth and safety of a new, modest two-room home.

The team from Family of Christ was able to build the new home in three days and spend extra time on finishing details that included decorative trimming, both exterior and interior paint, and a second door to a future kitchen, which Juan is saving up to build someday.

Family of Christ’s International Mission Partner

In 2016, Family of Christ adopted YLM as its international mission partner. We are working together in the care of our border communities through servant events, distribution of aid, repair of mission buildings in both El Paso and Mexico, and financial support of our ministers. We praise God for them and all of you who are praying for us and walking with us in service to the Lord!

    We had such a wonderful time working with the Flores family and their new home. Roof repairs on the church were a side benefit. God Bless, Jeff Jorgenson
