Mexico House Build Mission - Another family helped!


On Saturday, October 16th we built a new home for the Sanchez Valasquez family in Mexico. It was a very long and hot day, but everyone worked really hard and did a great job.


The house turned out really well, both structurally and aesthetically. Everyone liked the Coral-Orange color the family picked. We were able to paint the entire inside including the ceiling for the first time. This is house #14 that ILC has funded and built, in partnership with Project Mercy, and I think we get just a little better each time. We were also able to meet Rubin Guitierez and his children, who received one of the homes we built remotely during the pandemic. Meeting Rubin and his wonderful children after they've lived in the home for a year, reinforced how important and life-changing this mission work is for both volunteers and recipients.


I want to commend and thank the tremendous support from our congregation for this mission work, especially while the pandemic still lingers. Despite the obstacles, ILC stepped up strong with great volunteers, financial support, donations for the family, quilts, and lots of prayers. I continue to be humbled and thankful for the generosity of ILC.
