This young family lived in a house with a dirt floor and sooted interior walls. Two small children were growing up in this dark-lit house.  With no insulation, it was cold and wet during the rainy season.  Mario works in the fields making less than $5 a day - barley enough to feed his family.  Mayra works hard  at home - washing clothes by hand, making tortillas and caring for their children.  
The new home this family has been blessed with has changed their living conditions drastically for the better.  They are so grateful to be living in a house where the wind and rain do not blow in.   When asked how they like their house, they said "Muy, muy bonita" - very, very beautiful.  You can see in their eyes how much it means to them.
