A new home for the Antoine Family

 My name is Noïs Antoine and I am 48 years old. My wife and I have five children, three boys and two girls. Our eldest is 15 and the youngest is 3 years old. At the time of the earthquake I was inside the house. The ground started shaking, and as the shelf fell down I went out and watched the house collapse. Fortunately, the children were outside and no one got hurt. We left the property on where our old house was, and went to my wife’s property a short distance from our old house. There we built a temporary house, out of the things we had left from our old house. We have been praying for a new house, because we believe that when you have faith in the Lord, He will provide.  Our prayers have been answered, and we are very thankful and happy with our new house.
