Virginia Rehab Groundbreaking!

Posted: 0000-00-00 00:00:00

How exciting it was to be a small part of a number of community entities working together to provide a safe, adequate and affordable home to a young mother and her son in Virginia. My part was to pray a benediction for the occasion. I felt that it was more than that because God has called all of us to work together for the good of the whole community. In the bible verse Jeremiah 29:5, the Lord through the prophet Jeremiah told the people to build houses, plan to stay, plant gardens, marry and have children. And work for the prosperity of the city and pray for your city and as it prospers so will you.’

As a non profit youth organization it was also exciting to see the youth from the three area high schools becoming part of a “rehab” classroom instructional project. In the years to come, they will be able to drive by and say with pride, “I helped remodel and build that home.”

So for everyone, including all of the city, it was a big “win-win,”
and we were so glad to be a small part of it!
