Silvia Santiago, who works as a cook for our Trigo y Miel children’s feeding program, along with her husband, Felipe, and their six children had been living in an unsafe sheet-metal shack. That is before they were selected as the first family to be blessed with a brand-new earth block home! The first of many to be built by Forward Edge’s home-building business in Oaxaca, Mexico called Operation Enduring Homes.

The Santiago family.

A short-term mission team from Elevate Church worked alongside men from the community employed by Operation Enduring Homes to build this beautiful new home for the family of eight.

On behalf of Silvia and her family we’d like to say, “Muchas gracias!” to those of you who’ve supported, volunteered, or prayed for the construction of their new home!

You can be a part of putting families in safe homes…every brick makes a difference!
