Thrivent Builds in Eveleth

Posted: 2009-06-17 11:21:35

Wow! Thank you to everyone who worked so tirelessly to make yesterday's Build with the Bishop such a success! And thank you to everyone who came to build!

Yesterday 65 volunteers came out to Eveleth to Build with the Bishop. Constant laughter and chatter kept spirits high through the occasional moments of chaos.

Counselors and senior high campers from Voyageur's Lutheran Ministry led our crew in grace and prayer before a delious lunch prepared by Jean, Edith, and Bette from Gethsemane Lutheran Church, funded by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. The giant circle of volunteers stretched around the entire Habitat home as we sang (and even moved!) together in grace.

And we were able to raise both the exterior and interior walls and dig a trench around the entire home's perimeter for insulation!
