Priviledge and Poverty dwelling close together
Larry and his family have built five homes through Amor Ministries in Rocky Point.
Church groups assemble two room dwellings over a three day weekend with funds raised by the church and assitance from Amor carpenters. Larry, being bilingual, decided to continue visiting these precious and struggling Christian families and helping them in any way he can.
We spent Friday visiting and purchasing materials to help a family finish another bedroom and bath for their family of four. I will share more of them later. The Resort area is within a mile of this shanty area along the railroad tracks and the contrast is hard to observe. I think the most different thing that I was not expecting was the sandy desert nature of this area. The Sea of Cortez is quite lovely and these vacation condos are top notch. At four hours drive from our town it beats San Diego in distance and price. Gotta have a passport and survive the customs in and out.
