Simple life, simple wishes

During their five-year marriage, while living in their home made of corn stalks, tin, and plastic, Reina and Alex have kept their wishes very simple. Alex is always wishing for more work. Two or three days a week working in the field at $3 a day doesn’t put enough food on the table at times.

Like most couples living way under the poverty level, they don’t have much, but they’d also been wishing and praying for a child. It took several years for Deisy to “enter the scene.” Their third wish was to provide a good life for their beautiful daughter, nothing fancy, just the basics.  Basics like food, clothing, and a warm, dry room and a warm, dry bed to sleep on inside of it.

Their eyes were anything but dry while watching their new home being built, but the bed Deisy and her parents share tonight inside this testament to God’s love, will be. Thanks to Buy One Build One, their third wish has come true.
