How awesome to see the Rodrigues house going up. Our Agents of Hope are now working on the roof of the house. Praise the Lord for the good weather and for our team that is hard at work. May they continue to be a light in all that they do. For the love of God, in the name of Jesus! Paradigm Foundation
Check out this video that shows a bit of the new construction going on in the new home for the Rodrigues family. Paradigm Foundation

Meet the Rodrigues family. They have lived in this house for more than 40 years with three generation living together. Open Arms Missionary Evandro and Poly ministers to Renan, Gabriel and Julia. They met their parents Alan and Daiane and their grandparents Irineu and Maria while visiting the family. It was obvious that the family of seven needed a better place to live, not only due to space but because the house was in danger of collapse.
We are excited to announce that our partners at the Paradigm Foundation will be partnering with us again so that the Rodrigues family can have a new home.
Please pray for the construction and that the family will encounter the Savior Christ Jesus in those who will be serving them.

Praising God for another home delivered to a family in need in Aquidauana-MS. Thankful for our donors and partners like the Paradigm Foundation who help us bring hope in Jesus’ name!
"For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything."-Hebrews 3:4
As our next construction team in Aquidauana, Brazil continues with building Cirlene's new home, please pray with us that, throughout their 10 days there, they can be a light reflecting God's love in all that they do. Whether that is building, ministering to the family, playing with the kids, or just spending time with one another. May they show that there is no other foundation than Christ Jesus!

Our team from Assis, in partnership with the Paradigm Foundation, made quick headway on Cirlene's home. It was a blessing for our team to have Cirlene and her family members helping us with carrying blocks, sharing their coffee/water, and making sure our team had all that they need for the construction. We are thankful for our Agents of Hope who are using their gifts to build this home for another Open Arms family in need.

We are thankful for Paradigm Foundation for patterning with us to make this happen! Not only building a home but building a firm foundation in Christ.

How blessed we are to be partners with @paradigmfoundation Paradigm Foundation
to be able to bless a family in Aquidauana-MS where our Agent of Hope Sarita Romeiro lives and serves several communities.

Family history: This house is for a mother and her 3 children. A few months ago a very strong windstorm passed through Aquidauana where this family lives. The mother and her kids were living with her brother due to security reasons. During the storm, the roof fell and other parts of the house and furniture were also damaged.

How thankful that we are, that God provides our needs even when we think it might be impossible. Thankful for all that God has done and will do so that this family will be able to receive a new home.

Prayer request:
• Pray that the Lord will raise volunteers to start working on the house. We have a worker who is only there during the weekends.

• Pray that the Lord will raise a good team (our Brazilian team have plans to go with a team of volunteers builders in April).

• Pray for the family that we are building the house for

• Pray for our missionary Sarita who is organizing all the materials and anything else the team might need before they get there.

Thank you to all the BCF members who made donations to raise $8,500 to partner with Paradigm Foundation to build a home for an ultra poor family in the Dominican Republic! This home will help lift the Zapata family out of poverty.

As a member at BCF, a portion of your membership dues goes to help support people in need in our local community as well as all around the world! #dogood #giveback #SweatAngels
Thanks again to all of our members who donated to our fundraiser with Paradigm Foundation! Together we raised enough money to build a house for an ultra poor family in the Dominican Republic who desperately needed an improved living situation. #dogood #giveback #ShowGodsLove
In 6 weeks, 11 people are going to be traveling to California to take on Mt. Whitney to raise money for Wholehearted Foundation and our friends at Paradigm Foundation. Both of these organizations are focused on helping those in need, surrounding them with love, and sharing the gospel.

If you would like to help this team make an impact, please visit https://www.paradigmfoundation.org/heartsandhomes and keep these people in your prayers over the next few months.

Building a brighter future for families living in extreme poverty through new home construction. Love. Build. Serve. Paradigm Foundation is a faith-based nonprofit launched in 2014 and an initiative tied to Paradigm Building Group to do more with our passion for building.

Seeing a need to address the physical needs of the ultra-poor - those who lack the basic necessity of a shelter - our initial efforts to increase dignified living are focused in the Dominican Republic, with the goal to build homes around the world. Aiming to provide a safe and healthy living environment, families will receive a fully furnished home, complete with electricity, plumbing and yearlong bottled water delivery.

After a holiday hiatus, the Rodrigues Family house in Brazil is back underway! The house has been raised and covered (foundation, walls, roughed in plumbing and electric, and roof). What remains to be completed is the installation of doors and windows, finishing the flooring, prepare the walls, and paint. There have been some struggles with this project so please pray for the Open Arms Worldwide team, and for Lord to intervene and be glorified through this build!

HUGE PRAISE this Friday morning! As you may remember, we have partnered with Julie's Heart Cry to construct portions a “New Beginnings Community: Transformation for the Displaced” in the CAR. Our aim is to meet the desperate physical and spiritual needs of these people and one of these ways is with a new well. We are excited to share that drilling has begun!

JHC shared: "The average person in Central African Republic uses 5 gallons of water per day, and the water is often not safe to drink. Without a safe and nearby water source, people must walk long distances (often miles to get water. These wasted hours fetching water take away from education, work, and family life. Hence, the need for 90 feet deep or more water well for this community. This water well can provide safe drinking water for at least 500 people or more."

Please pray with us for this project, for the protection of the team, that they would find an abundance of clean water, that the rebels who have terrorized this region never come back, and most importantly, that those who use this well come to know our good and loving God, the true source of living water.
(John 7:37-39)

Prayer Request from Kenya: Elizabeth, the 82 year old matriarch of the Wamaitha family who recently received a home, passed away over the weekend. She had been unwell for a long time and due to limited healthcare in the village we are unsure why she passed. The woman who had been her long-time caretaker will be moving into the home with her 4 children, to now care for Elizabeth’s grandchildren who were already living there. Praise God for that! Please join us in praying for the families involved, that the Lord will continue to be glorified in the home and peace for the Wamaitha children through this transition. Photos of Elizabeth are below.

Work is a gift designed by God to help us discover the talents and abilities he has given us, and another way to see how we have been made in his image. On our recent trip to the DR, we were encouraged by the many women who have started businesses now that they have a safe place to live. Please join us in praying for the Lord’s favor over their efforts and that they continue to praise God in the process!

Dedication of Esther’s home in Kenya

This past weekend our church family in Kenya completed the home for Esther and her family and had a community celebration dedicating it to the Lord. Like the many others, we pray this home is a beacon of hope and God’s goodness to those living around it. 💕

Our last day was spent in Juan Tomas working on a new partnership with Pastor Richard to build more homes and had the chance to visit a few families. Pray for Mirabel and her family (first image) who recently received their home. Another entrepreneur, the family used the scrap from the former shelter to make a small storefront for selling cleaning supplies. We are excited to see what God has in store for this community!

Today started with some fellowship with the staff of Empowering Action and a yummy lunch. It’s always so encouraging to meet with fellow believers and share what the Lord has been doing. We then headed to Tamarindo to visit with Pastor Perez and some of the families we have served. We got to see Luisa, the Figueroa family and sweet Mirna and her girls. Happy to share Mirna now has a sewing storefront! Common theme today - home stewardship! Each family had home improvement projects going on to take care of what the Lord has blessed them with (painting, tile flooring)! Praise God for His goodness!

It is a privilege to go to God on behalf of another. Amanda received our first home ever and has asked our prayer warriors to pray for her and her family - watch for more.

Pastor Jose Lorenzo shared with us yesterday how his church is growing and how the Lord led him through outreach efforts during Covid to help stir hope especially for the youth and he is seeing many come to faith. Please pray for this faithful servant of God and his family!

Thank you for your prayers! We hit the ground running. Amazing first day back where it all started, in the Dominican Republic. We were able to catch up with many families in Quisqueya hearing stories of strength, faith and perseverance. Got to catch up with Pastor Jose and hear the growth of his church, Amanda (first home recipient), a true entrepreneur at heart who is now running a nail salon on her front porch, Eddie who used to work with us as a Forman, Pastor Pedro, Vitale the humble man we found living in a trash heap was reading the history of Christianity when we arrived, Ana Maria and her neighbor who came to faith (pray for Madeline) and of course faithful Mirqueya the prayer warrior. It is good to be back and see how the Lord is at work!

Praise God! Cirlene is officially moved in and her home has been dedicated! Our partner Open Arms Worldwide in Brazil shares: "Cirlene is already hosting a Bible study in her new home. Our missionary Sarita is leading, and several neighbors are participating as well!

This is why we always say our ministry is so much more than just building houses. Cirlene lacked hope, God revealed Himself to her and not only is her family now experiencing His love and grace, but other neighbors are too! We pray this home continues to be a light in this community and that those seeking Him continue to experience the fullness of life that comes with walking with our loving Father.

And just like that the new foundation for Esther’s home is taking shape in Kenya! The team hopes to be under roof in the next week or so. We love this phase of construction as it is a great reminder that we should build our lives on what is solid and that will last. Let’s keep our eyes fixed on God, the author and provider of all things!

“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” Colossians 3:2

So grateful for the completion of our first home in Brazil with Open Arms Worldwide! And check out that cool plaque they made for the family. Please continue to pray for them. God is good and at work! 🤗

Building Hope.

Paradigm Foundation is a faith-based nonprofit launched in 2014 to address the physical needs of the ultra-poor, those who lack the basic necessity of a shelter. The ministry’s initial efforts to increase dignified living are focused in the Dominican Republic and now Kenya, with the goal to build homes around the world.

Aiming to provide a safe and healthy living environment, families who are chosen by their community will receive a new, fully furnished home complete with electricity, plumbing, and clean water. While it is important to build stronger physical foundations for families in need we also believe it is important to strengthen spiritual foundations. We do this by partnering and working through the local church to identify and select the most in need in their respective community. These churches will continue to serve and walk with the family long after the build is complete.

“For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.” Hebrews 3:4
