Hello Friends and Family!
We hope this finds you well! Here we are preparing for our 9th annual Thanksgiving Homes for Hope trip.
We are so thankful to be able to go again with Trevor and Chase as it is such a powerful experience.
Below are a few pictures from last year's family, showing their old home, a big tent with holes surrounded by boards, palette wood/dirt floors, holy tarp as a roof with exposure to wind and rain. Trevor especially connected with little Carlos and we hope to see them again this year.
We are humbled and so thankful to be a part of bringing the hope of a new home to these families. To see them light up as they realize they will now be safe, dry and warm is a gift beyond words.
We remember telling one of the fathers who received a home, that we were the labor, but that people from back home were financially sponsoring his home and praying for them. His eyes filled with tears as he could not imagine why anyone would care about him and his family. What a blessing!
This year will be interesting because we have less folks on our team, only 26, many of which are kids. We are still committing to build two homes, but it will be A LOT of work! It's not too late to join us! ;)
We have generously been gifted the funds for one house and so only need to raise money for the other which is $6,550 for the home plus $1,500 for the furniture kit. If there are extra funds we try to bless the families with a few special items.
Last year's family wanted to start a tamale business so we were able to purchase their business license, a huge pot, a small freezer and all the supplies they needed to get their business started.
If you would like to partner with us through prayer or financial support it would be greatly appreciated! As our travel is quickly approaching, we would like to have all funds by Friday, November 10th. Any donations will be tax deductible. Thank you so much!
Love and blessings to you!
The Berry Family,
Jeff, Nora, Trevor (12) and Chase (9)
