Building a House, Making a Home

God is providing in Anonos!!!! An opportunity recently opened up here to rent a house down the street, which we have appropriately named "Casa Nueva", or New House. The hope is to renovate the house and use it for God's kingdom in a multitude of ways, including a church, meeting place for small groups, classrooms, internet cafe, place for the people in the church to sell handicrafts or baked goods, and a space for parties, dancing, singing, rejoicing, laughing, kids clubhouse, etc., etc., etc.... Here is the house and the facelift it is getting!!

 The house is literally down the street from the main house. It is easily accessible to the people in the community.

This is how the house started out. With a very spacious backyard to eventually use for church services...and a cross already provided :)

Once we had the keys we went through the whole house and prayed over each room. We asked the Holy Spirit to come and fill each room and prepare the house for what the Lord wants to do here.

And now we are in the renovations process. Most of the walls had significant mold on them, so the walls were repaired, a good coat of mud added in places, and a fresh coat of primer. We definitely had some help.


Each room got a fresh coat of primer.

The house is currently in the painting and cleaning stage.
To be continued.....
