One thing I have always wanted to do is work on a home for Habitat for Humanity. After this weekend, I can cross it off my list. Thanks, Revolution, for getting my booty out there!
T-Paw would probably have wondered who that hammer-wielding gal was; I know he taught me better than that. I still felt pretty productive, though.
Something I hadn’t planned for, or even thought of, that turned out to be the coolest part of the whole experience was working with the homeowner.
She and I visited, and she shared part of her story with me. In the fall of 2012, she felt called to pay rent for a friend. March of 2013, she received approval for a home through Habitat for Humanity. She was elated at all God had done for her and her family through that opportunity. It was so neat to get to work with her.
I loved learning more about how Habitat for Humanity works and seeing all the homeowners throughout the neighborhood helping build. I walked past one of their landscape classes, too. I had no idea. Not only are they providing homes, they are equipping the homeowners for success.
