Dedication Sunday - To God be the Glory

The Baptist Build 2016 houses are complete.   Today, May 15, was the day that the Habitat houses on Neuse View road were dedicated and presented to their new families.  Dr. Marvin Connelly, from the Wake Missionary Baptist Association, opened the service welcoming the churches.  Dr. Roger Nix, from the Raleigh Baptist Association, reminded us of "Why we Build".

The homeowners were each presented a beautiful, original painting depicting the building of the home by Jashua Steward of The Fountain of Raleigh. 

 The interiors are beautiful and ready for the new families to move in.  We celebrated today with our recipient families:
 - Admasu Abe & Yesembet Sewer and their two young sons
 - Cathleen Jefferson and her three children

Thanks to all who came out and participated in this special service of Thanksgiving for what God is doing here in Wake County.  We pray for the well being of these new homeowners and for God's presence with them as they enjoy this blessing.  
To God be the Glory.  

April Builders

As the houses near completion, a large team of volunteers gathers for a new day of effort.  Many of these workers are celebrating an "Operation Inasmuch" day of ministry with their church family, reflecting on the lesson from Matthew 25:40. 
 Siding and roofing work going on on one of these houses. 

The scaffolding helps workers be more efficient than using ladders as waterproof tar paper goes on the roof.  

 Meanwhile the other house has a busy crew painting the indoor walls and ceilings.  Each house has three bedrooms, two baths, and a large living area and kitchen to be painted. 

Wonderful ladies from Trinity Baptist provided a delicious lunch including homemade desserts for the lucky workers that day.

What a blessing to spend the day working with fellow Christians helping families achieve the homes of their dreams.
