god has shown me i have to personally be

broken

for the hurting and that actually gets

me energy

i'm 59 i wake up every day full of

energy

love what i do i'm not burned out i just

love it and i think it comes from this

actually being broken you have energy

when you get let god break your heart

for the things that breaks his heart

tijuana is the largest land border in

the world as far as number of people

crossing every day

and there's 5 000 people a month moving

to work in foreign factories

typically people are making less than a

hundred dollars a week

there's all these people that were

living and had land but no house

so they were living in old garage doors

and paper and plastic

in may of 1990 i went to mexico to do

one house

that was my whole plan and while we were

building that house my three and a half

year old daughter

came to me on the last day of the build

after we'd done the dedication and she

goes daddy

are you gonna build a house for the bus

people too this family living in

abandoned bus

the windows were broken out they had bed

on bricks

and you know they cook food in the

engine and all this stuff and they

really needed a house

so i'm gonna have to do a second house

but i had no money no tools

no teams no nothing and so i i just said

yes to god

and then we did a couple more and then

it started picking up pace

now we're approaching 7 000 homes for

the poor in 23 different countries

our goal is to get to a thousand homes

every two years so we're very close to

that

i'm trying to focus on the bottom third

of the world

in in sense of poverty and of course

where there's

great poverty often it's also where

people have heard the gospel less

and been discipled less we want people

to have access to the basics of life

food

water shelter healthcare clothing and

then to hear the gospel get a bible in

their language and access to fellowship

with other believers

and we dedicate every house to the

lordship of christ and to god

and i think sometimes god calls us just

to do one thing

maybe it turns into two or two thousand

but i think we also have to learn to be

obedient not everything is going to lead

to a program

the more we focus on the one i think god

then is able to trust us with the many
