At Saturday’s dedication of Guesh and Marta’s home sponsored by the Methodist Coalition and Schneider Electric in Crosstowne, Rev. David Haley of Knightdale United Methodist Church shared a story of a dedication he attended years ago while he was on staff at Habitat for Humanity International. A young girl whose family’s house was being dedicated commented, “WE HAVE A HOME. WE JUST NEED A HOUSE TO PUT IT IN!”
Amen to that. What more empowering thing can a ministry do than to work alongside a family to help them realize the dreams they have for their family?
Happy Thanksgiving and many thanks to all of you who have a hand in providing families with a house to put their home in! We are blessed to have you as partners!
