A Future Homeowner

Here's a future Habitat home owner and her children standing in what will soon be her living-room.

Below is her own personal ground breaking ceremony!


What's scarier than a woman with a gun?

More on Habitat for Humanity

The RV Care-A-Vanner 25th anniversary celebration in Springfield, MO

I had the opportunity to attend the RV Care-A-Vanner 25th anniversary celebration in Springfield, MO April 21st - May 5th 2014.

“The RV Care-A-Vanner program is a special part of Habitat’s ministry that has played a significant role in improving the lives of thousands of people across North America,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “We thank all the volunteers for their continued support and dedication to this program for the past 25 years.”

During the two-week building event hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, volunteers and RV Care-A-Vanners will build two new homes and perform critical home repairs in Legacy Trails, a planned Habitat community.

Below are a few pictures from the event.

I had the privilege of working on the above house.  It went to a mother and daughter named Dee and Gypsy Rose, Hurricane Katrina survivors.  You can see Gypsy Rose on the porch in her wheel chair.  She is a very encouraging young lady and has a very bright outlook on life in spite of many obstacles.  You can read some of her story here or here.

Above is Gypsy Rose and her mother Dee.

Thanks for looking.
