Thank You from J127 Ministry

J127 Ministry is a Christian-based organization to aid young people who have aged out of the foster care system are orphaned or homeless due to lack of family. We are in the process of building a home in Durant, OK where we will provide a loving environment, focus on the individuals’ needs and help reinforce them in critical life skills, emotional support, spiritual growth, and education needs. We know by providing the right tools they will have a great chance of becoming successful as they transition into adulthood and become productive adults who will be able to break the cycle of poverty in every area of their lives. We will be able to help build their support system as they learn new coping techniques, problem-solving skills, reach their educational goals, heal emotionally and grow spiritually.  These walls were built in partnership with St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Cabot, PA.

Thanks from Hopkinsville Habitat for Humanity

Below is a wonderful letter from the Hopkiinsville HFH.  They received one of the homes we built in Indiana during the Southeast event.  It is very rare that we get this heart felt of a thank you.  Normally it is just a form letter than I glance at and it goes into file 13.  

 

Here is what I am reminded of….. we don’t always know what our partners are dealing with or why they are or aren’t building homes.  But this is the impact that we get to have virtually EVERY WEEKEND. Please don’t let it every become ‘normal’ or ‘just another event’ or ‘just another house’.  I know that I have let myself get there sometimes but this letter is a great reminder and a shot in my arm to keep going.
