The backgrounds and family situations from which our young people come are varied, but many of them come from low resource situations. One of the families that we work with live out in a small village an hour's drive away over steep and bumpy terrain. Their house is a relatively simple wooden structure with bundled leaves for roofing and with a dirt floor.
Thanks to a generous group giving a donation to the work of Pure Joy we were able to offer this family (who, if I recall correctly, have had ten children, though some grown and moved out) to give them a cement floor in part of their property (they have two separate structures for their home).
At the end of July, having consulted with a builder and having procured materials, we were able to go along and help out with making their new cement floor. CLICK on any of the below images to see the process of installing this flooring.
After we had left they had the process done so that the floor was smoothed out and they send a couple of photos later on after they had started moving furniture back in.
The family is so grateful to the donors who made this possible and we are glad that Pure Joy was able to help coordinate this.
Thank you to all of you who are a part of Pure Joy Missions by your giving, prayers, and support. This work is a testament to the love of God and of His church who He works through!
