Casas por Cristo IMO Lance Corporal Shane P. Harris
Each spring we go to Anapra, Mexico and build a home for a homeless family. These homes have 3 rooms to them and electricity. We leave a framed picture of Shane with each family, a Bible and the keys to their safe, warm, new home. The families are so happy.
The cost of the materials is $7,000 and we go with a group named Casas por Cristo. The funds come from us, friends, and family who want to help. We have built 5 homes in the past 5 years to honor the memory of our son, Lance Corporal Shane P. Harris. Friends have traveled from Norway and Canada and Iceland to participate.
Shane had hoped to start building Casas por Cristo Homes with us when he got back home-we keep his dream alive!!!
If anyone is interested in joining us please contact us. It takes about a week to build a house. Pat and Carol Harris 505-454-6545
