Efraim Lopez is 70 years old and his wife is 60 years old.  They still have a 16-year-old son that lives at home and he is the one that does agricultural work to support the family; earning about $65 a month.  Their house was in very poor condition and they did not have the ability to change that.  Their comments “We are so grateful for the assistance that we have been given.  There is no other institution that gives this kind of help to those in our circumstance, like Servant Ministries.  As the Bible says that it is more blessed to give than receive; we pray that the Lord will bless this ministry abundantly!”
