The Ultimate Christmas Gift

Spread the love

After many days of laughter and tears, the house we build for this family for Christmas is finally complete.The family made us fresh duck with beans and salad for yet another meal together!  It is pretty incredible to be on the receiving end of such generosity and sacrifice.During the dedication the crew from Canada presented the family with: beds, dressers, blankets, shoes, stove, propane, groceries, dishes and kitchenware, chickens, a bike for dad, two fruit trees, ten chickens and some other misc items.  Needless to say, the family was speechless.Today is our last day in Mexico and we are heading out this morning to see the family for one last time.  Even though we are heading back to Canada tomorrow, this family will always be dear to our hearts.  This has been a Christmas like no other for all of us. It has been so amazing to be a part of giving the gift of a hope and a future to a family in desperate need.   To all of you back home who helped to make this possible, thank you again!
