We met Jose & Margartia a few years ago when a family member had taken us to meet them.  At that time Jose had a severe eye infection and was unable to work.  We were able to find assistance and get Jose medicine for his eye that day.  The family was living in a very small room where they all slept on two beds that had been pushed together.  It was an old adobe mud Swiss relief house from the earthquake of the late 1970's.  Inside it was wet and humid. 
After two years of praying and hoping, Jose & Margarita's dreams came true.  They were blessed with a house of their own.  Now they don't all have to sleep together and have enough space to really have a "home".  Jose's health improved too, and he has found work as a security guard at a local bank.  Things are looking up for this family and they feel blessed that God has helped them so!
