From Ian:

I am joining the team from Tiburon Impact Adventures on their 6th home build in Baja California.  My dad started attending the builds three years ago and he tells me that it changed his outlook on life. I hope it will do the same for me.

This is a great opportunity for me to change the lives of a wonderful family. 

In just two days, fifteen-to-twenty of us can build a family a small three-room home.  This new home is a life altering event for the selected families, with a concrete floor, bunkbeds for their kids, a propane stove, and even the ability to have electricity.  These homes eliminate many diseases that are caused by their existing dirt floors.  They also help the kids stay in school, help the parents work, and avoid the rain.

This year we have enough participants to change the lives of three families by providing each one with a new home. 

The trip is a total of three days.  We fly to San Diego on day one and drive to the WYAM/HoH campus in Baja California.  On day two we start with a prayer and blessing of the location where we will be building the home.  We will also have a chance to meet the family.  We then get to work painting, framing, and building the house.  By the end of the first day, the walls, roof, and windows are framed and standing.  On day three we finish the build, paint, and install furniture and a stove.  We will also take the family on a surprise trip to Walmart.  This is all funded on-site by donations from the various participants.  It's a huge surprise and treat for the family.  The family also doesn't know about the the bedding, furniture, and stove that we supply.  We end the day  with a dedication ceremony and prayer.  The keys are passed around the group where each and every member gives a short dedication.  Finally, the keys are given to the family and they enter their home for the first time.  

All donations will go towards: participation fees, travel, donations to the family, donations to WYAM/Homes for Hope, funding additional home builds.

Thank you for your donations!  Any amount helps.

Love, Ian
