I am thankful to have had the chance to participate in the Habitat trip to western NC for last two years, that I have the God-given time and skills/interest for the home building work involved. I think Habitat for Humanity is a very worth-while program, but still I originally had some hesitation about going on a “mission” trip. Fortunately, something just told me go. God must work in non-mysterious ways also. I now actually look forward to the event each year.
Having never participated in mission-type work before, this trip changed my outlook on service. My prior thought was of me just giving up “my” time to serve someone else. The reality is that I got more out of it than I put into it. Proverbs 11:24 relates: “One man gives freely, yet gains even more…”
It feels good to help someone get a home, realizing we can take home ownership for granted. It is rewarding to me to work with others helping build a home and seeing results. The local people there were just great and fun to work with and get to know, and I am inspired by their faithfulness. Lastly, it ocurred to me that the fellowship and devotion our group had will make us a stronger congregation overall.
- Thanks be to God, and Let the Service begin! Jim Hamel
This four day trip to the mountains of North Carolina is hands on and fellowship oriented. This trip primarily focuses on supporting the Mitchell/Yancey County Habitat for Humanity with time set aside in the evening for devotions and fellowship. When possible, time is set aside to visit local sights or points of interest. There are various service options depending on your interest and skill level.
- Construction: Construction tasks may vary with each trip; however, training will be available at all skill levels.
- Habitat ReStore: Another service option available for this trip is to assist the “Habitat ReStore” in sorting and organizing donations. This option is ideal for those who like to support the mission but are not comfortable working in construction.
- Mission Cook: TBD
