Greatest Gift Ever Besides…

Kevin Campbell | June 19, 2013

I hate it when I have to miss a house dedication.  They are such beautiful celebrations of an act that provides a life changing opportunity.  Last Saturday, I had a family graduation celebration in Virginia and I was unable to attend the dedication of our most recently completed home in Augusta Crossings.  I reached out by e-mail to our homebuyer partner, Ty, to tell her I was sorry to miss her big day.

Ty responded that she understood the importance of my family obligations and closed by writing, “Habitat is the greatest gift ever besides the Lord Jesus Christ!”  Dedicating her first home on her birthday and understanding where those blessings come from.

Many thanks to our faithful partners from Christ Church Raleigh and Highland United Methodist Church for making this home possible and for showing the love of Jesus in a tangible way to someone who already knows it!
