As soon as we got to the old folks home I recognized the face but really had no idea who he was?
Juanito the man holding the pole on the left next to Steve, our friend who invited Paulino to come and build a chicken coop, has known Paulino for years from a rehab center in VG. However the man in the white shirt looked like someone I knew but was not sure! Isaias told us that we used to bring him food at the trash dump and that he received Jesus at a rehab and is now serving the Lord at the old folks home there in San Jacinto! God is amazing this year alone we have seen so many people from the trash dump that are no longer there. However this is trully the first we have seen in full time ministry.

Today is Feburary 3, 2015 and this morning as I was cooking a man came by for a hair cut. The first thing you notice is they are not totally skinny any more. Then you see the smile on their face and a new look of confidence! That are confident that Jesus loves them and they are not hopeless anymore living at a trash dump at the base of the foothills where no one not even Christians go to bless them!

Please pray for Juanito, Isaias and especially the old men! Paulino also knew another man living at the home! Reyes he said he does not hear but he seemed to hear Gianna and Jose just fine? When we left I asked Paulino how he knew him and he said they used to be in a rehab about a half hour south of here but when the government got involved with the rehab center they said he had mental problems and could not stay. They tossed many others like him out on the streets. Reyes admitted to me that he was a really bad drunk when he lived on the streets but he does not drink now. I wonder how many of them that live there could say the same thing? Another man Nicono (spelling?) said his entire family died in a car wreck when he was younger including his kids! SO sad so far from his home state and sitting around waiting to die!

Praying the chicken coop will give them a desire for live I seen how they talked with Gianna and Jose and I can not wait to go back!
