Board of Directors in Reynosa

Our ministry is led by a wonderful group of people who deeply care for the families in our communities. Our Board of Directors visits twice a year, and they were with us this month to pour a roof, celebrate the opening of our new woodshop, and discuss our goals and dreams for Faith Ministry. We had a great time with them and appreciate their support so much!

The Board of Directors poured the roof of Casa #14, a Matching Challenge house built for Tina and her daughter Grecia in June by a team from Virginia.

The woodshop will be part of our new skills training program, where we'll teach adults how to make wooden furniture for the houses we build.
