Build a Habitat House (part 4)

…continued from part 3, part 2 and part 1. On our last day, Bertha Pinder agreed to sit down and have lunch with us. She had been around most of the time but had mostly kept to herself. She had seen groups  come through before. She knew we would not be around much longer and […]

Build a Habitat House (part 3)

…continued from part 2 and part 1: First let me say, there was a huge gap in time between the posting of part 2 and 3. I apologize to those of you who were hanging on to the edge of your seat for the conclusion. Unfortunately, when I returned stateside, work caught up to me […]

Build a Habitat House (part 2) – The Project

…continued from part 1: Since my group was heading the furthest south out of the four groups, we were relegated to the van. Each day we would travel to and from the site in the van with our supplies and no seats. While we bounced along the uneven pavement on the floor or sitting on […]

Build a Habitat House (part 1)

While my goal on this list was to simply build a Habitat Home, my experience in doing so could not have been imagined at the outset of this adventure. When I originally created my list, my plan was to mosey on down to a job site for a weekend and put in a couple of hours […]

She gave me the gift certificate in order to hold a raffle to raise money for my mission trip this summer. @CLTdining on Twitter learned of […]

Help for Haiti

For those of you who have been following this blog, you know last summer I spent a week in the Bahamas rebuilding homes with Bahamas Methodist Habitat. I believe strongly in this organization and the director Abraham McIntyre has become a friend of mine. Right now they really need your help as they are working […]
