A House For Heidy

A few weeks back, Marc met a lady named Heidy.  She has five kids.  Her husband died before the baby was born.  Heidy and the kids were living in a hole that had been dug as a latrine.  Out of a few pieces of scrap wood, they had made something to cover the hole at night.  Things like living in a latrine are incomprehensible to me.

Last week, I had the opportunity to meet Heidy and her kids.  The kids are so sweet. So is Heidy.
Yesterday, Marc and crew built a house for Heidy.  A three bedroom house.  One bedroom for the girls, one for the boys and one for Heidy.  Last week the family was excited just knowing they getting a house.  I am sure yesterday there was even more excitement. 

I am so thankful that this sweet family no longer has to live in a latrine.
