This is a picture of the house they have now. It's a small wooden house with dirt floors.
This is Carmen's stove- it's a wood stove! Just like the olden days!!
They eat from the crops they grow on their land, and make tortillas from grinding up corn!
Isaac's sister, Rocio, is a distributer of clothes for World Vision, and his cousin helps distribute shoe boxes with Operation Christmas Child. Months before Rocio talked with the community church there in Colonia Blanca to figure out how many children lived in the area. She then arranged for a shoe box & clothes to be given to each child.
It was really special giving out the clothes & boxes. Rocio, Isaac and I did a small event at the church, with games, a snack, a Bible lesson and the distribution of the gifts. The majority of the kids would have not received one gift for Christmas if Rocio wouldn't have organized the donations, and if we would have come. I know the kids left blessed, but I think it was us who were even more blessed, to be able to give to those who truly don't have.
