The Septic Tank is in as of yesterday...praise the Lord this step is done!
Sunday, August 26, 2012
The roof is now complete on Michelle and Leo's house. Also, the pipes are all in for the plumbing and the hole has been dug for the septic tank. Tomorrow the guys have to go to another town to find a septic tank and then that will be in place. So exciting! Even more exciting than this is that Michelle and Leo came to church this morning and Daniel did a baby dedication for their little one, Hazel Camila. It was a really sweet time and we are really praying for them as they are really spiritually sensitive right now. Please join us in praying for them!!!

The building on Leo and Michelle's house has begun! We have raised almost $3,000 thanks to so many generous supporters who desire to invest in this family! Thank you so much!!! It has been such a blessing to see other members of the community coming to help build the home for their neighbor! In addition, Leo and Michelle want to come to church this weekend and have asked Daniel to do a dedication for their new baby! We are so blessed by this and are excited as to what the Lord is going to continue to do as we help to meet the physical needs of this family. At times, to reach a family spiritually you have to meet their physical needs first by serving and loving them with the love of Christ. We are praying fervently for this family. Please pray along with us! Here are a few pictures of the first few days of work.
Patio where house will be built. The guys have taken the little roof off of the patio at this point.
Daniel's childhood friend, Tim, who came down to serve with him for a few days--he's got SKILLS in building homes!

Leo, Michele, Tifani y Hazel Camila
We have been ministering to this family from INVU for a few years now. They are currently living in a room attached to Michele’s mother’s house and have dreams of having their own home. This summer we had hoped to begin building them a small home (measuring 18ft x 21ft) in front of her mom’s house, but they did not receive the permits until last week. We still desire to help them with this project and have begun raising the funds to build. We are estimating the total expense of this project to be between $4,000 and $5,000. If you feel led to donate money towards the building of this new home, you can send tax deductible donations to:
PO Box 53640
Albuquerque, NM 87153
Account #4205 (has to be written in the memo line of the check)
Or you can give online at: www.shepsstaff.org/barrett.aspx
Please let us know if you have given toward this project so that we can request these funds for this specific project. Our email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you desire to be a part of the actual building of the home, please let us know as soon as possible because we hope to begin before the end of August. We would love for you to be a part of this project with us!
Please join us in praying for this family during this time. Thanks to all of you and God bless!
In Him, Daniel and Sarah Barrett
