A group of 8 volunteers from our church assisted building a Habitat home in Gaines on Saturday, July 27. Our group installed siding on the exterior of the home and blocks in the floor joists. We had a very rewarding time.
The homeowner, Stephanie, was a missionary and has scarce financial resources. Stephanie runs a non-profit that supports churches in their mission work by helping them with marketing. Her childhood home burned down when she was a kid so she knows what it is like to lose everything and not have a place to stay. Her passion and appreciation for homeownership are guided by those memories as well as her devotion to Christ. She is very excited about her new home!
