Our Habitat Journey
by family partner Sarah Spanos
Here are a few of her words at their home dedication in July, 2015.
"We have witnessed a community of people coming together to help us reach our goal of a better life for our kids...Together, we have built much more than a house. Together, we have been the hands and feet of Jesus. My prayer is that this home is always used for His glory and the furthering of His kingdom. This is a house, but it will become a symbol of security, of determination, of perseverance, of community, of love."
