Dear Praying Friends,

 

Housing has been costly since moving to Cajamarca. The economy in Cajamarca is very strong, which makes housing costs high. As a result we started building our house over 2 years ago. We bought land, had plans drawn up with high hopes and anticipation. Two years later, the land is paid for, the house foundation has been laid, and the walls are up for the ground level, and we praise the Lord for what has been done. We hoped to be able to build the house with our savings, and by cutting our expenses. We moved into a smaller house, and have cut expenses on almost every corner we know to cut. We are now realizing that we are not able to do it on our own. It is hard to ask you to help, when we know you are already doing so much for us! However, we are in need of help. Our goal is to see the house roughed in by March of 2012. We have money set aside, and plan on starting up construction again. We don’t have enough to finish, and we are starting by faith. If you can help, or can take up a special love offering to help with this needed building fund, we would greatly appreciate it. Please keep this in your prayers as well, that God would supply what we need to be able to get this project done. I will have material costs in the next letter. Basically we are looking at something around $5,000. Please mark any extras for Rice Housing fund.
