Building a house filled with love and joy.

From October 2nd through November 7th, six churches participated in our Building on Faith, bringing teams which filled the construction site with enthusiasm and eagerness as the volunteers learned how to build a house. Men and women of all ages took up their hammers with gusto, and began the process of home building from the ground up.
