I spent yesterday morning folding the Habitat500 newsletters for area churches with the Youth Interns from the SWOP program. What a great group of kids! S.W.O.P. - the Summer Work Outreach Project - empowers 11 to 14 year old youth to serve their communities. These students devote a huge part of their summer to giving back. Habitat is glad to be part of their outreach. Together we folded several thousand newsletters, breaking for a snack and stretch of course, and chatted about Habitat and service and their goals this summer. I thank them for inviting me into their day and for spending hours folding this important newsletter. Learn more about the SWOP Program at http://messiahlutheran.info/tp40/page.asp?ID=145766.

The newsletters are being delivered to area churches in the coming weeks. If you would like to request some for your congregation, call 866.749.8910 or email vista@nslchfh.org.
