Luis & Letti's Casa
Another project we are currently involved in is helping a family in a neighboring village build a home. Luis and Letti and their four children live in the village of Mezcala. In the past, they have generously opened their home for the showing of the Jesus film, something for which they have received much opposition from their Catholic neighbors. Unfortunately, opposition has come not only from neighbors, but also from family members (Luis’ father and in-laws). These family members have brought so much spiritual darkness and emotional stress into the home, that Luis and Letti are willing to give up their home and move, leaving the home to the rest of the family. Thankfully, Luis already owns a small piece of property that he inherited where the new home will be built. This parcel has been cleared and walls are being erected. Since this parcel is in a more central location than Luis’ other home, it will allow even greater opportunities for outreach to the village.
We have committed a portion of our income to helping Luis build a home for his family. With the Lord’s blessing and the help of other Christian friends here, we will be able to turn something Satan meant for evil into something God can use for God. Please join with us in praying for that to happen. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
