On service trips I’ve been a part of, we worked in hands-on construction and renovation and sometimes a little deconstruction. From building trusses to framing houses or putting up drywall to staining wood trim, I learned a lot and not just about building a house. I’ve worked with affiliates in seven different states including in New Orleans, LA after Hurricane Katrina.
Habitat is more than building homes; it is building hope. In the 20 years I’ve worked with Habitat I’ve always gotten more out of the work than blisters and sore muscles. I’ve made amazing friends and my heart has been filled with the joy of serving others.
