Lord’s Bank Family Has A New Home

A Lord Bank’s family is tonight safe and comfortable in their new living quarters. That is because, working along with volunteers from the Hand and Hand Ministries, the Garcias were able to build a new house to replace their dilapidated quarters. The excitement of moving into the brand new building could hardly be contained. Andrea Polanco reports.

Lord’s Bank residents Luis and Jessica Garcia and their three girls were gifted with a brand new home today. The Garcia family and Hand in Hand Ministries, put the funds together to buy materials and labor to build the house. The Garcias were happy and grateful.


Luis Garcia, New Home Owner

“I am feeling very happy today. I have no words to thank something like this.”

“Were you expecting this house?”


Luis Garcia

“Not really because I mi apply for something else but I think it was God’s blessings that came from heaven and I got this.”


Andrea Polanco

“So when are you guys going to move in?”


Luis Garcia

“Probably, in the next two weeks’ time. We are going to do some finishing and we are good.”


Hand in Hand Ministries has been building homes and giving them to deserving home owners for several years now in Belize. Today’s occasion was a special one.

“We are very excited. We love coming down. We have a group of volunteers, thirteen of us who came down to be a part of this build and it gives us an opportunity to do the Lord’s work. We are especially excited about this build because it is the two hundred and fiftieth build. It’s a milestone and we are glad to be a part of that. When we turn the house over it is a sixteen by sixteen house that, in some cases has electric and plumbing, in some cases because it is a two hundred and fiftieth house. They get the opportunity to live in the house for ten years and if they maintain the house, then Hand in Hand give them house at the end of the ten year period.”


This family of five will surely maintain their new house; after all they were living in this weathered structure for some years. So, just how much of a welcomed change is it?


Luis Garcia

Ohhh…like, I would say like a twenty five percent to a hundred percent, right. It is very different. It was like a dry weather house and now I have something very comfortable.”


Jessica Garcia


“What does this mean for you and your family?”


Jessica Garcia, New Home Owner

“Well, we are all happy to have a new house and a different changes because like how we mi, sometimes when it rains it would leak and we would get wet and now we are gonna be dry so I am very happy and thankful to everyone.”
